Darius Wiki


Darius Odyssey is a 2009 guidebook covering G-Darius, Darius, Darius Gaiden, Darius II and Dariusburst originally bundled with the pre-order DX version of Dariusburst.


Four editions of the book exist:

  • The original 2009 edition bundled with the DX version of Dariusburst. It has a white cover with full-color artwork of King Fossil.
  • A stand-alone 2013 edition. It has a black cover with golden line-art of Great Thing. It was also bundled with a collection of WARNING!!: Darius-san, a parody comic-strip tie-in to Dariusburst: Another Chronicle EX, and four clearfiles decorated with Darius related artwork.
  • The 2015 "CA-ver."; so named after Chara-Ani, who co-published this and the 2013 version with Taito. It has a dark-cyan cover with golden line-art of Force Claw and Azure Nightmare. It was included (digitally) in the PS4 and PC versions of Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours and bundled (physically) with the Japanese limited edition of the PSVita version.
  • The 2019 edition subtitled "Cozmic Archives", which was bundled with the special edition of Darius Cozmic Collection.

The 2013 edition added information on Dariusburst: Another Chronicle. The CA-ver. also added information concerning Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours, Dariusburst: Another Chronicle EX and Dariusburst: Second Prologue, some of the WARNING!! strips and a few other extras. Although the information concerning Chronicle Saviours is severely lacking compared to the rest.


Based on the CA-ver. Everything up-to and including the VISUAL GALLERY-chapter is in color, the rest is in black-and-white.
