An HD remaster of the 1997 title G-DariusG-Darius HD brings classic shoot-em-up action to modern platforms—all covered in a nice, fresh coat of high-definition paint! Er, metaphorically speaking, of course. For more information, you can check out the official list of key features below.

  • Branching stages and multiple paths through each stage
  • Iconic, maritime-inspired boss designs
  • Unique enemy spacecraft capture system for strategic depth
  • Playable with modern high-resolution, or original arcade graphics
  • Fantastic soundtrack and audio design



G-Darius HD is now available digitally on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. A physical version of the game has also been confirmed for later this year. Interested in picking that one up instead? No worries, you can head on over to their website and pre-order it there!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
