In Europe and Australia, published by Empire Interactive, all three versions were released in March 2006. In the United States, published by Destineer, it was released for the PlayStation 2 on May 16, 2007 and for PC on July 28, 2007, with the Xbox version never being released in North America. However, the European PAL-based Xbox version works on the North American NTSC-based Xbox systems, without any modifications .
Bonus content includes hints, cheats and tips for some games, original game flyers, and one interview with Taito. Somewhat controversially, eight of the 43 games- Balloon Bomber, Bubble Symphony, Cadash, Rayforce, Raystorm, G Darius, Pop 'n Pop and Syvalion- were split across the platforms due to porting issues, requiring players to buy more than one version to get every game available.
In any event, all of the games seen here were taken directly from the Japanese Taito Memories collections. The only exceptions were Bubble Symphony, Pop 'n Pop, and Rayforce; Bubble Symphony and Rayforce now appear on the Japanese Taito Memories 2 collections ; Pop 'n Pop still has yet to appear. In the North America PS2 version Puzzle Bobble 2 is replaced with Bust-a-Move Again. The only games not included on this collection are the color version of Space Invaders (not to be confused with "Space Invaders Part II"), Pu-Li-Ru-La, and a baseball game called "Aa Eikou no Koshien", having been replaced by the three "exclusive" games previously mentioned.
