Deathsmiles, DSMBL + Deathsmiles II [PS4, Xbox One & Switch, 2021]
« on: September 15, 2019, 03:12:22 AM »
These games were announced for multiplatform release today at TGS. This is the first of several planned multiplatform CAVE releases!

City Connection will be publishing (and presumably developing the ports)

Here's hoping we finally get a really accurate port of DSII!

EDIT: PS4 & Switch named as the platforms.

That would indeed be great as it's a fine game but I'd be much happier if M2 were doing it.

There was a stream about these ports today. The following modes will be included:

Deathsmiles:
-Arcade
-Ver 1.1
-"Normal"

Deathsmiles Mega Black Label:
-Arcade
-Ver 1.1
-"Normal"

Deathsmiles II:
-Arcade
-IIX
-Arrange

Additionally, they state new functionality will be in these versions. The fact they are including the CAVE-made arrange modes might mean CAVE are more involved in this than we think.

PS4 named as the platform, to no one's surprise.

Also announced for Xbox One! Looks like a straight port of the X360 versions, but maybe they'll be kind and refine the slowdown for DSII Arcade.

Nice. I haven't played Deathsmiles for years. Hopefully MBL will have better slowdown. It's been a while but  wasn't it something like Arcade had accurate stage slowdown but  missing some on the bosses and 360 was the opposite? Or have I lost my mind.

Deathsmiles 2 could do with a new lick of paint. The gameplay deserved better.

360 MBL is pretty accurate overall, so it's the one I play now. Arcade mode has more slowdown in the stages, but less on the bosses and (especially) the Ice Palace.

I like the look of DSII, I just want a port with the same slowdown as the Arcade Ver. Since it was coded on a Windows PC, basically, it should be the easiest port ever to make 100% accurate, if we could just find a company that cared enough to do it. I remember CAVE said they did the X360 port of the Arcade DSII in about 3-4 days. Just slapped together at the last minute, super buggy and no care taken to tweak the slowdown accuracy. A real shame.
