See the new Darius Burst in action Friday
(Thanks to ECM for the tip!)
If you are chomping at the bit to see Taito’s new Darius Burst Another Chronicle in action, then you’ll have the chance to do so this Friday. Taito will be doing a webshow on Ustream.tv where DBAC will be shown in some manner. The show begins at 8PM in Japan, so you’d have to adjust your clocks accordingly – that’s 4AM PST. In the event you aren’t up that early, I imagine that someone will rip the footage so we can see what the game is all about at any time of the day.
UPDATE: Thanks to my insomnia tonight, I am up to check it out although I will be trying to get some sleep again here in a minute. The game looks wickedly awesome, and in case you aren’t able to catch it now, it looks like they save the video on the page to see later. Looks like it runs at 60 fps, no bullet hell and it looks like they are using mirrors to help combine the monitor edges in the center so they blend together quite well and you don’t have to worry about a large black line in the center of the screen. They already showed a play through two bosses but only with two players. Looks like they may do four players later but I’m too tired to stick around and wait – still it was worth it to see the game in action. In fact, player interest is high enough that I got a phone call at my arcade yesterday about this which is unusual for an arcade title that hadn’t been seen in action until now.
