Today, M2 held the M2 Shmups Thanksgiving Festival in Japan, where they announced that they are working on a PlayStation 4 version of Darius Cozmic Collection, as well as new free updates for the Nintendo Switch version that will be present in the base PS4 version. [Thanks, @tanin1971, 2 on Twitter!]

Aside from the games that were originally in the Switch version, Darius Plus (PC-Engine), Super Nova (SNES), and Sagaia (Genesis) will be added to the collection. Aside from this, there will be new gadgets (extra features), new modes, and additional English language support among other improvements.
