Deathsmiles I & II Coming to Switch
City Connection have confirmed they are bringing Cave’s bullet-hell shoot ’em ups Deathsmiles I & II to Nintendo Switch next year.
Deathsmiles is CAVE’s horizontally scrolling bullet-hell shoot ’em up where you take the role of one of five playable Angels to defend the magical land of Gilverado from an invasion by Hell itself! The game originally released in 2007, featuring six different game modes, including the Mega Black Label version (which is also included in the package), and supports two-player co-op play.
Deathsmiles II Makai no Merry Christmas originally released in 2009 and became the first CAVE arcade game to use polygons instead of sprites. All three titles are set to release in one package for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2021, offering new features along with enhanced graphics.
