Deathsmiles Flying To iPhone This Spring

By Ishaan . February 20, 2011 . 12:00pm


Cave didn’t just announce console games at their recent event in Japan; they also announced new iPhone titles. The big announcement here is that Deathsmiles is headed to the iPhone and iPod Touch this spring.


Cave are also going to be updating Mushihimesama Bug Panic on the iPhone with a “Bug Battle” multiplayer mode that will be compatible with both Bluetooth and 3G/Wi-Fi. Other tweaks such as an Autobomb On/Off switch will be added via the same update.

  • iPhone or iPhone 3GS/4 only? There is a difference. It’s like a DS or a DSi.

    • most likely. Pretty much all of cave iphone release requires 3gs/4g (lucky me).

      • Except that the iPhone isn’t 4G.

        • I was actually refering to iphone 4. I just realized what I typed.

    • All of their previous games have required iPhone 3GS and up. I think it’s pretty obvious.

      • I guess my point is… why the hell do people write “coming to iPhone” as a headline when that is not what is happening. It should read “coming to iPhone 3GS/4”. It’s false advertising and misleading. Would you write “coming to DS” if the game was DSi only?

  • Android version for the west please?

    • They’re developing some visual novel thing for Android so maybe there’s a chance ^_^

    If its anything like Cave’s other iPhone shoot’em ups I expect good things.

    We in Europe finally got this game only this Friday and so far really enjoying it.


    I sold my iPod Touch just 2 days ago. The only reason why I didn’t want to sell it for was because of the Cave shmups that I enjoyed throughly. Guess I’ll have to wait for the next iPhone or the iPod touch.

  • lolz, no chance William John Jardim. Now the whole world sees you as a DeathSmiles fanatic!

  • …………. At times like this, I really want the iPhone D:

    Cave, why only iphone? (┛◉Д◉)┛彡┻━┻

  • Apollonis

    Mwahaha, saw this a couple days ago, been drooling over it. Their other iPhone stuff is excellent, and with their past success on the platform I can see it sort of being a strategic entry point for the popularity of the genre/company in the west.

    if it is cheap enough i just may pick this one up again. I have the LE XBOX version and enjoyed it tons. cave is doing some wonderful things with iphone!

    offtopic: i want darksiders 2 and bayonetta 2 :(

    It is hard to imagine playing Deathsmiles on my tiny iPhone screen. especially if I am going to have to have a finger on the screen further obscuring my view. Still, I love me my Deathsmiles. And I would not mind it on the go.
