Just to clarify something - if I have a UK 360 with a Japanese account on there, are there still restrictions in me buying MBL as DLC?

First of all you'd need a japanese 360 to run "Death Smiles" (as it probably won't be region free).
Unfortunately most western CCs are not accepted when using a japanese acc., so you'll have to buy a japanese XBL point card to fill your acc. with MS points (codes from european point cards won't work on the japanese marketplace).

Cool, picking up Japanese XBL points is a doddle. I'm not too fussed about buying the original DS if I can download MBL- it's saving me shelling out on another 360, as Death Smiles was my no.1 reason.

Great news! (off to find some JP XBL points in anticipation.)

You will need the original Deathsmiles disc to download and play Mega Black Label. So you'll need a JP XBox 360 + DS regardless.

MBL is DLC for Deathsmiles, it isn't an XBLA game.

Really?! Someone's fed me some mis-information then - I was told that the entire package was going to be available as a download. :mad:

Thanks for the help EOJ  :righton:

Here's a 6min vid of the recent Xbox Festa:

The last 10-15 seconds show video footage from the Xbox 360 port, which is the first footage of the game in action
I've seen anywhere. Looks very good!

Thx EOJ.
Quick question regarding MS points:
Does the Japanese MS points work with a Pal/US account or do we need Jap account+Jap Ms points exclusively?

April 23rd? Why isn't it taking them so long? Hopefully they're spending time trying to get the slowdown perfect
and putting in a scanline option instead of thinking of more contests for the blog or other pointless BS.
That stick is pretty cool though.

couple more questions.
will amazon.co.jp ship this outside of asia?
do i need a jap amazon account to get this if they do ship outside of japan?
real shame we can't region lock the region free tards to the shmups forum region-moaning thread.

No, amazon.jp does not ship games (or controllers, etc) outside of Japan.

They say the price and release of DSMBL will be announced later. So it doesn't look like it will be available on 4/23. Maybe a month or two later.

I really wish they'd put up some gameplay vids already. We've seen enough screenshots. So far I don't like the hi res look as much as the original low res, but I'd have to see it in motion to make a final decision. Here's hoping they release some vids before the game is released.
