Stuttgart, 22nd July 2021 – TAITO and ININ Games are happy to announce G-Darius HD – a remastered port of the original G-Darius from 1997! The classic shoot ‘em up will be released both physically and digitally on Nintendo Switch and Sony PlayStation 4 for Europe and North America later this year and can already be pre-ordered.
