Well its not new but the announcement is. It was only released in Japan in 2009 and now its getting a US release date. Its from vgchartz.


Some of the biggest and most niche assets of the Xbox 360's library are its' SHMUPs. Fans of the genre know what I'm talking about - the 360 has Mushishimesama Futari, Otomedius Gorgeous, Espgaluda II: Black Label, DoDonPachi Dai-Oujou: Black Label Extra, DeathSmiles, and others.

These games are famous for two things. Being insane bullet-spam fests is one, and almost never getting out of Japan is the other. Among what I've listed, none have done so up until now.

Siliconera tells us that a Publisher that prefers to remain unknown (but is one that should be familiar to who reads the site, so, I guess it's the usual publishers of niche Japanese games - Atlus, Xseed, NIS America, Aksys Games, or others) has picked up the game for localization... which is great, as DeathSmiles is an excellent horizontal shooter - featuring great music, imaginative art, and enemies coming at you from both sides - for extra challenge (as if just one wasn't enough).

Don't just take my word for it, though - here's a sweet trailer to vouch for its' strong sides.



I'm sure you'd agree after watching it, right?

I hope this is just the start of a Japanese SHMUP localization chain - everyone should get a chance at enjoying good ol' SHMUPS - a genre mostly dead in our day and age. At least in the West.

Note: Destructoid reported on Siliconera taking the article down shortly after posting it - so maybe word got out too early. If the Siliconera link doesn't work, inform me of it at my profile.



They say its excellent. That means you can you can put this game to the console wars.
I know, itsa shmup and you dont like them. But they said its excellent right???
The year gets better and better.
