Deathsmiles is coming to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, it has been confirmed, bringing a taste of XBOX 360-esque action to Apple devices.
Check out Deathsmiles in action in the clip below
Set to debut during the spring, the game stands out for some frantic action and an insanely detailed insectivore alien art style that recalls the true giant of the genre, R-Type. It’s not clear whether the new version will feature the three gameplay modes of the Xbox 360 iteration.
A clip of the title in action suggests – reservations over touchscreen controls, aside - that the transition to iGadgets has been a relatively seamless one. However, given how busy the screen can get, we’d bet it’s best played on an iPad, instead of the confines of the displays on smaller Cupertino kit.
Cave has also confirmed an impending update for Mushihimesama Bug Panic for iPhone owners in March.
