Darius R is a port of the original Darius, released in 2002 for the Game Boy Advance, only in Japan. It is like Super Darius/Darius Plus, though more vertical scrolling is required, and there are less zones.

The game has a option to play individual stages. Another odd feature is music from throughout the Darius series... as well as a secret track from a game that has nothing to do with Taito.
