Check out IGN’s first preview for Deathsmiles…

“During our trip to the Tokyo Game Show last year, one of our favorite discoveries outside the show was the arcade shooter DeathSmiles II. A “bullet hell” game created by the masters of the genre, Cave, this is a gothic horror shooter starring cute anime girls that fly around blasting the crap out of fantasy monsters. This year we’ll get the next best thing on Xbox 360: the original DeathSmiles. While it’s a surprise to see a game like this coming to retail as opposed to Xbox Live Arcade, we’ve been spending some quality time with it and are pretty sure it will appeal to shmup fans.”
