Nintendo Switch version launching on April 16th


Hong Kong - March 31, 2020 –
Independent developer and publisher, Eastasiasoft Limited, today announced that the fast-paced beat’em up Kawaii Deathu Desu from co-publisher Top Hat Studios and developer Pippin Games will launch for Nintendo Switch on the Nintendo eShop on April 16th. Digital pre-load will begin on April 9th. Kawaii Deathu Desu will be priced at US$4.99/€4.99. Early birds can enjoy a 20% launch discount until April 29th.

Inspired by the likes of One Finger Death Punch, gameplay is rhythmic and addictive, simple yet satisfying. Players select a character to perform in a wide variety of venues, execute unique abilities and beat up overzealous fans as they rush the stage. Using collected souls, each pixel art idol’s appearance can also be customized.

With character-specific gameplay styles, alternate modes for every show, local multiplayer and tons of unlockable extras, Kawaii Deathu Desu turns up the volume on replayability. This is two-button action with an adorably dark twist!

About Kawaii Deathu Desu

What type of competition will this be, however? As beings of the underworld, the next to inherit the throne will be determined by whoever can collect the most souls from faithful followers. With that in mind, as idols, there's no better way to victory than mowing your own fans at shows!
