Side scrolling shooters were once the cream of the crop. Man, I remember playing Gaiares, Thunder Force III and IV etc on the Sega Genesis and loving it. Back in the day I was pretty good at side scrolling shooters- today not so much. I call it age rot or whatever but I still give these types of games a run through when a chance arises. Well, DariusBurst Chronicle Saviours is one of those titles that I will have to keep an eye on as some really cool downloadable content has been, will soon be, released. There is even a physical version coming for the Sony Playstation 4 console.
First up the new downloadable content (DLC). A DLC pack for Cave and 8ing are joining already released packs from Sega (DLC Pack #2) and Taito (DLC Pack #1). This is interesting because what you are getting with these DLC Packs is a new ship to play the game with and a new soundtrack to blast to. How cool is that? Now, let’s discuss getting Thunder Force III/IV, Axelay and Gradius DLC packs for DariusBurst. How about it?
Cave DLC Pack #3 will feature Dodonpachi Resurrection, Deathsmiles and Ketsui and will be available on Playstation 4, Playstation Vita and PC’s via Valve’s Steam digital service.
8ing DLC Pack #4 brings Battle Garegga, Sorcer Striker and Terra Diver to the mix of DariusBurst. This pack will also be available for Playstation 4, Playstation Vita and PC’s via Valve’s Steam digital distribution service.
The physical release of DariusBurst will be hitting the Sony Playstation 4 in a special limited edition. The full details of what is in this special edition are not available at this time, nor is the release date. Just keep your eye out for it on store shelves and grab it when you see it, it won’t last long.
