Our girls are out and about! Don’t miss out on our lolitastic LE in stores today!

Deathsmiles LE

  • Deathsmiles Faceplate featuring four cute angels trapped in a creepy gothic cage! This faceplate was never released in Japan, go us!
  • Deathsmiles Premium Arrange Album! 15 spooky high energy tracks selected by Manabu Namki, Director of Deathsmiles!
  • Deathsmiles horizontal artbox and game to compliment the shmup orientation!

Enter the world of Gilverado, a kingdom plagued by hideous monsters and tortured souls. Choose from four angels with unique demonic familiars and battle against a storm of enemies pouring out of Hell’s gates!  Fight your way out of tight spots as you are surrounded by enemy units and bullets from both sides of the screen. The unique left/right shooting mechanic of Deathsmiles will keep you on your toes as you dodge and weave through complex enemy fire, beautifully crafted by the modern masters of shmups, CAVE.

Triggering “Power-up mode” will unleash great streams of golden crowns, white tiaras, and grey skulls as you cut through enemies with your little Angel’s mighty magic shot.   Try not to get distracted by the bling as you collect these gorgeous trinkets en masse and pump your high score to the limit!

“Most shooters feature space ships heroically charging through bullet showers to kill some alien nuisance,” says Cherie Baker, PR Specialist. “With Deathsmiles, you’ve got little girls flying through a gothic otherworld to destroy the horrific, necrotic Imperator Tyrannosatan. Really what could top that!?”

Deathsmiles Key Features:

  • Five Characters to Explore Gilverado

Choose Windia, the foppish English girl; Casper, the sassy German; Follett, the cautious French girl; or Rosa, the California valley girl or Sakura the faithful witch of the swamp wastes.” Travel down the roads of Gilverado and discover hidden conversations between the angels.

  • Mega Black Label

Test your supernatural powers against the onslaught of the Ice Palace and its forgotten protector!   Put your skills to the test with a new scoring system that demands more, but pumps out even more explosions of shiny tokens!

  • Choose Your Path and Difficulty

You can choose your own route through the game’s stages and set the difficulty for each, from a level of 1 to 3. These difficulty levels allow you to customize the bullet count and boss toughness. Watch out if you choose level 3 five times, though….

  • Save and Play Back Replays

Save replays of your own games to watch later for your own enjoyment.

Players can also download the top 20 scoring runs on the leaderboards.

  • Online Rankings & Online Co-op
  • Check out your score on the online leaderboard, with rankings for each character and game mode. Two-player cooperative play is also available via: Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network!

    @MrBanballow: Beautiful.

    The thing is, I’m gonna be at AX and ordered through Amazon. So, basically, I won’t be able to get mine till Sunday when I get back, in which case, if Aksys had DSs there at the con I could have gotten it there.

    Anyway, cool! Hope does well for both Aksys and Cave.

    Nah, Amazon still has it. It just sold so well they ran out immediately. You won’t find it on the main search, but here’s a link to the specific product page for it. http://www.amazon.com/Deathsmiles-Limited-Xbox-360/dp/B003E6VK5Q/ref=pd_cp_vg_2

    Hey Aksys REPS,

    Q2: How much in sales are Aksys/Cave losing with this NOT being at stores? I really had hoped with all the hype everyone would pre-order. I got mines :)

    Also I really had hoped this your mother is a classy lady loli game would be in stores like Hot Topic and other anime/goth stores. What is going on?? Did market research suggest that in select stores NOT be profitable?
    Does the ad/shelf space really cost that much?
