Cave has something special planned for fans of its arcade shoot-'em-ups. Starting at 11:00 AM GMT today (6:00 AM U.S. Central time), Cave will broadcast a livestream event showing off the upcoming iOS version of Deathsmiles.

The livestream, which will be archived if you miss the initial showing, will unveil a new and iOS-exclusive character, and will offer profiles for the game's illustrator, voice actors, and composers. A segment near the end of the broadcast will give a first look at the iOS version's revised gameplay, which will be optimized for touch screens, as per Cave's previous iOS releases Dodonpachi Resurrection and Espgaluda II.

Deathsmiles will premiere in the App Store on July 7th at a temporary sale price of $4.99.
