Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition Fires onto PS3 This Fall

Posted by Sammy Barker

Bullet hell

Under Defeat is perhaps best known for being a Dreamcast game – despite launching in 2006, long after the console’s untimely demise. As such, there’s a good chance you might not have played the revered arcade shooter – but thankfully localisation specialists Rising Star Games have happened upon a solution.

Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition will release on the PlayStation 3 in North America later this year, and will ship with a bevy of improvements. For $29.99 you’ll unlock enhanced visuals, a new two-player mode, and a 16:9 New Order mode. The latter will “take advantage of HD television screens by making the field twice the size of regular shooters”. More space to fill bullets with – just what we always wanted.

You’ll be able to purchase the game directly from the PlayStation Store, but if you pick it up at retail you’ll score a whole heap of physical extras too. Bonuses include a digital art-book, all current DLC and patches, a soundtrack CD, and “an exclusive letter from the CEO of [developer] G.Rev and the game’s executive producer, Hiroyuki Maruyama”.

Let us know if the title’s imminent arrival is tickling your trigger finger in the comments section below.

Damn, that's one high price tag for an HD upgrade to a game that launched in 2006.
I would like this game to succeed, because I'm actually a fan of it, but I don't think many people will jump on an arcade shooter for $30.
I think this should've been a PSN download only for $10 or so for it to have a, ahem, shot. But hopefully I'm wrong (like usual). ;)

I'll give it a go if the disc version gets an EU release. There's a huge gaping shump shaped hole in the PS3's library, it's the only reason I've ever considered getting a 360!
