Gothic Lolita Shooter Sequel Dated For Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 port of Cave's arcade shooter DeathSmiles II has been dated today at a Microsoft-hosted "Shooting Festa" event in Tokyo.

DeathSmiles II will be released on the Xbox 360 on May 27 in Japan, complete with a limited edition version. The port will run at a 16:9 aspect ratio and feature seven stages, two of which are new stages. The playable characters are Follett and Rosa from the arcade version. The HD game also allows players to select levels.

At the Shooting Festa, Cave's Guwange was on display as well.

Also in Cave console game news, developer 5pb mentioned that Microsoft staff was working at full capacity to pinpoint the cause of the bugs in DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou Black Label and that the company would like players to wait a little longer for the patch. 5pb also is working on an original shooting game. Hopefully not a buggy one!

    A Cave game getting a Western release? Hahaha. No. Deathsmiles II? Yes please.

    they could just make it region free like mushihime and espaluga 2

    How hard can it seriously be to make a smup, not very, imo.

    I don't think they will release it in Australia, they never do. However, I've been told it will be region free.

    As for it being easy to make a schmup. Not really. Zun makes it look incredibly easy but it's actually quite hard. If you have a skilled team, a good design document and apt time, you can make a really good shmup, however, if you are missing one of these things, then it puts it at risk.
    Lastly, if you're missing a member of your required team (designers, artists, programmers, sound designers) then it's even harder.
    Why do you think western game companies never dare tread into shmup ground?
