Young girls, almost naked, in a video game- that's not like Japan at all! Remember DOA: Beach Volleyball 3? That's right, the only game with a masturbation mode or as they call it "one-handed control"
Anyway it's hitting stores stateside soon for the 360, and here's the skinny on it. You are in the world of Gilverado, full of crazy monsters and "tortured souls". You play as one of four Lolitas: "Windia, the foppish English girl; Casper, the sassy German; Follett, the cautious French girl; or Rosa, the California valley girl." For those math wizards out there, I know it is only four, but I couldn't find the other one. You can also customize your difficulty, and the journey you take to the endgame.
According to the game's publisher Aksys players "choose from four angels with unique demonic familiars and battle against a storm of enemies pouring out of Hell's gates! Fight your way out of tight spots as you are surrounded by enemy units and bullets from both sides of the screen.
The unique left/right shooting mechanic of Deathsmiles will keep you on your toes as you dodge and weave through complex enemy fire, beautifully crafted by the modern masters of shmups, CAVE. Triggering “Power-up mode” will unleash great streams of golden crowns, white tiaras, and grey skulls as you cut through enemies with your little Angel's mighty magic shot. "Try not to get distracted by the bling as you collect these gorgeous trinkets en masse and pump your high score to the limit!" That's not all you'll be pumping I'm sure.
