Europe to finally get Death Smiles

December 17th, 2010 Michael Pica

Earlier this year North America got a limited Edition release of the Japanese arcade shooter Death Smiles. In “Early 2011″ Rising Start Games plans to bring the Cave shooter to Europe, complete with their won “Deluxe Edition”

No much is known about the price, or exact release date but they have announced that it will include the original soundtrack, a “desktop accessory pack” as well as the Mega Black Lable DLC which provides and extra stage, character and level 999 difficulty.

Like the North American release it is Xbox 360 exclusive, also like the standard Xbox 360 release it includes both the original arcade mode as well as the console exclusive v1.1 variation of the game.

By comparison the North American Limited edition also included the soundtrack and the DLC but instead of a “desktop accessory pack” it featured a faceplate. Chances are this was changed due to the release of the slim Xbox 360 which doesn’t feature a removable faceplate. I’d venture a guess that we wont be seeing faceplates included as pack-ins for CEs anymore.

Both are Japan exclusive (at least at the moment) and will be released on January 27th 2011

Not So Special Edition: God of War III

March 9th, 2010 Michael Pica

Once again we see special edition content being sold separately, this week it’s the God of War III soundtrack. One of the biggest features of the Ultimate edition in North America as well as the Trilogy Edition in Europe is the fact that the game includes a heavy metal soundtrack by well known bands inspired by and specifically for God of War III.

Not content with having these be exclusive to the buyers paying a premium for the CE releases the Soundtrack is available for purchase right now for about $6. Of course right now you can only buy the 6-track EP which is significantly shorter than the full length album that comes with the CE, but content is content. At least European collectors get their money’s worth with the inclusion of the first two God of War games. Then again the “God of War Collection” hasn’t been released in Europe and I’ve been enjoying my copy here in the US for some time now.

Here’s hoping Pandoras Box is as pretty in person as it looks in the pictures.

More Heavy Rain Delays

February 26th, 2010 Michael Pica

Those who pre-ordered their Heavy Rain CE though HMV might want to hold off on redeaming their bonus content codes though the Playstation Store. Maven on our forums reported receiving this email:

Thanks for pre-ordering Heavy Rain Special Edition.

Sony have reported to us that there has unfortunately been a last-minute technical delay to the Heavy Rain official soundtrack, meaning that customers who have purchased the Heavy Rain Special Edition will not be able to download the Soundtrack until 4th March 2010. Sony recommend that you wait until this date to redeem your Special Edition voucher code which is in the game box – you’ll then receive all the Special Edition content in one batch.

However, if you choose to redeem your voucher code immediately for the other downloadable content, you won’t be able to receive the official soundtrack nor will you be able to use the same code to redeem the soundtrack on 4th March 2010. Therefore, you’ll need the following code to enable you to download the soundtrack from 4th March 2010.

So there you have it, if you use the code before March 4th you’ll miss out on some of the content, they’re not really clear on what method of recourse you have if you’ve already used your code. If you’re one of the people who already used the code and missed out let us know.
