California-based company Aksys Games is the bringer-outer of fine titles like BlazBlue and Record of Agarest War. The publisher announced today on its Web site that it will be handling the North American localization of Cave's amazing Gothic Lolita shmup, DeathSmiles.
As if this confirmation weren't great enough news, the company's press release states that the game's optional Mega Black Label add-on (which was $15 DLC in Japan) comes standard right out of the box, giving you Sakura as a playable character, the Crystal Shrine stage, and the 999 difficulty level.
Additionally, it's got online co-op, which, unless I'm mistaken, Japan didn't get at all. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) We Cave fans can officially move our excitement meters from "hopeful drooling" to "full-on idiotic glee."
There's no word on a release date yet, but this project is already in the oven, and here's confirmation before Cave has even had time to reply to my request for comment. Hit the jump for the full press release with all the available details.
