Trivia / Death Smiles

  • Bad Export for You: Deathsmiles II X was released in North America and Europe. As a download-only title. An untranslated download-only title. CAVE resorted to this largely because they couldn't find any willing publishers to do a physical release, as the first game's sales were not too impressive.
  • Executive Meddling: Microsoft wants less arcade ports on Xbox Live Arcade, to the frustration of CAVE. Which is why the second game's Japanese retail edition was put on sale directly for download on XBLA.
