Deathsmiles I – II Limited and Collector’s Edition Announced for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4

Strictly Limited Games have announced that they will partner up with CAVE Interactive to release a physical Limited Edition and Collector’s Edition of Deathsmiles I- II for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, both of which will be exclusive to the Strictly Limited Games Store.

Originally released into Japanese arcades, before being ported to consoles across the globe, Deathsmiles I – II combines two of CAVE’s Gothic lolita type shoot-em-ups (shmps) into a single definitive edition. The release of Deathsmiles I – II not only sees the original games put together in a single package, but also sees the revisions (such as Mega Black Edition Edition) and Gothic wa Mahou Otome DLC included as part of the package. A global digital release is expected on the 16th December 2021, alongside a physical release in Japan, but this partnership with Strictly Limited Games means that western fans will now be able to receive a physical variation of the game in the near future.

About Deathsmiles:
Enter the world of Gilverado, a kingdom plagued by hideous monsters and tortured souls. Players can select from several different angels with unique powers and battle against a storm of enemies pouring out of Hell’s gates! As with the best of shooters, skill, hand to eye coordination, along with total concentration are essential as you fight your way out of tight spots when you are surrounded by enemy units and bullets from both sides of the screen. Deathsmiles I・II will keep you on your toes as you dodge and weave through complex enemy fire, beautifully crafted by the modern masters of shmup.
