* BadExportForYou: ''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.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Microsoft wants less arcade ports on UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade, to the frustration of CAVE. Which is why the second game's Japanese retail edition was put on sale directly for download on XBLA.
