Under Defeat HD - New Update
I wrote last month about the recent announcement from G.Rev about a port of Under Defeat on the PS3/360 early next year.
More details about the release emerged yesterday:
G.rev is pleased to announce Under Defeat HD for the XBox 360 & PS3!!
Under Defeat HD
Platform: XBox 360, PS3
Release Date: Spring 2011
Genre: Vertical-scrolling shoot'em up
Price: Regular Edition - 5,600 yen (5,880 yen, tax included)
Limited Edition - 7,980 yen (8,379 yen, tax included)

Classic helicopter shoot'em up Under Defeat storms to gaming front lines in 2012. First released in 2005 for arcades, the later Dreamcast version has since become a premium item. G.rev has been very thankful for the high level of demand from fans to bring the game to a next gen console, and we are pleased to present details on the XBox 360 & PS3 ports.
■ Destructive Realism
Rumbling tank suspensions. Explosions and flumes of smoke. Trees blown back with the blasts.
Under Defeat pushed to the limits of the Dreamcast's graphics quality, presenting the battlefield in full 3D with realistic detail. Though the gameplay stays true to the simplicity of a traditional 2D-shooter, Under Defeat's expressionism allows gamers to indulge in the pleasure of blowing digital things up.
■ All new Remix Mode
Under Defeat HD is not just a port of the original title. In addition to the arcade version, the all new Remix Mode (temporary name) makes full use of 16:9 televisions. More details to come, so stay tuned.
■ Limited Reproduction Edition
UD HD will be available in regular and limited edition versions.
The limited edition includes:
1) Kami ・ Strategy DVD*. Video of expert game play and HOW TO tutorial for the arcade version
2) NEW ORDER Soundtrack (temporary title). Rising game music composer Yosuke Yasui of Super Sweep, who worked on titles such as Mamoru-kun is Cursed! and Eschatos, brings his talent to make a renewed Under Defeat soundtrack!
3) Plus! Special Limited Edition box featuring an original illustration by character designer Nanashiki Yamamoto
Fans will also be happy to hear that the game package design of the limited edition will be based on the original Dreamcast limited edition design!
■ More news to come!
We will be back in a few days with more details on the limited edition, Remix Mode and more!!
*The Kami ・ Strategy DVD includes re-edited footage used in INH's INSANITY DVD THE SOLDIER OF FORTUNE "UNDER DEFEAT" (published by TEAM ENTERTAINMENT, April 2011).
