I’m Drooling Over Deathsmiles Rearrange Mode

By Spencer . October 16, 2008 . 12:32pm


Wow, Deathsmiles is going to look fantastic on the Xbox 360. Cave plans to add a rearrange mode for their home console version with high resolution, pre-rendered artwork. The ogre comparison shows the arcade version on the left and its Xbox 360 makeover on the right. It almost looks like Deathsmiles’ arrange mode is going to be in 2.5D! I usually don’t gush over graphics, but I like how Cave isn’t just shoving an arcade port of Deathsmiles on to a disc. They’re giving an already excellent shooter an excellent extra feature. If only 5pb’s ports were handled with this much care…


Deathsmiles will get some kind of limited edition release too. I’m guessing it’s going to come with a faceplate since more than one can be clearly seen on the developer’s desk.

    Somebody localize it please.

    Woah! Maybe this actually has a chance to make it past NA product approval now?

    @jarrod – Funny that you mention that! When I saw the new graphics my first thought was is Cave putting all of this effort into Deathsmiles to get US approval.

    brilliant deduction guys. the Japanese crowd would eat it up as a port anyway, this extra effort is definitely oriented for the American market.

    I forgot to ask and didn’t read the blog entry, but are they also remixing the soundtrack?

  • If you all want this game so bad, why don’t you email Microsoft? They’re way more receptive to customer feedback than the other Redmond giant.
