Set in an alternate universe during a World War-esque conflict, Under Defeat HD is a shoot ‘em up arcade game which lets players take on the role of a helicopter pilot in a territory divided by struggle between the Empire and the Union.

Under Defeat HD builds off of the classic arcade version with a new set of upgrades and modes. Some of the new features include: destructive realism, presenting a further refined iteration of the original with improved artwork, textures and shadowing; and dual stick compatibility. The game also includes two engaging player modes, including Classic Arcade Mode and a 16:9 New Order Mode, which takes full advantage of HD TV screens. Moreover, practice versions of both modes will also be available for players looking to refine their skills on individual levels.

"Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition is another highly anticipated title that has been regarded as one of the all-time classic games by the shmup community," said Phil Robinson, VP of Rising Star Games Inc. "G.rev has a great reputation within the industry and we're thrilled to be working with them to bring Under Defeat HD to North America."

In addition to the full game disc, Rising Star Games' Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition includes:

  • Digital art book
  • All current DLC and patches
  • Soundtrack CD featuring tracks from the New Order Mode
  • Letter from G.rev CEO and Under Defeat Executive Producer Hiroyuki Maruyama

Under Defeat HD will be available on both the PS3 and PlayStation Network for $39.99.
