Here's more reason for ghoulish smiles. At this year's arcade show AOU, the sequel for Lolita maniac shooter DeathSmiles has been unveiled today. It's all Christmasy.
Called DeathSmiles 2: Hell's Christmas, the game is a Gothic Lolita winter wonderland — a ruffly petticoat Christmas nightmare! (Fitting, as the prequel took place during Halloween.) Cave artist director Junya Inoue, whose work added so much flair to Cave shooters ESP Ra.De. and Guwange, is once again handling the game's look.
The horizontal side-scrolling DeathSmiles 2 is expected to hit Japanese arcades later this year.
