The recent release of Deathsmiles in the US has seemingly prompted the need for additional bullet-hell SHMUPs, this time self-publishing the ultra-bloody Guwange worldwide on the Live Arcade. Deathsmiles was brought over in the States by Aksys in a retail special edition.
No release date or pricing has been set. Cave’s Makoto Asada previewed the title with some screens on his Japanese blog, all of them work-in-progress and mostly of the menus of this feudal Japan-based shooter. Sprites are bizarre, insane, but gorgeous. Hopefully that’s all retained in the Live Arcade port. No need for reworking here.
