Under Defeat HD Deluxe Edition trailer shows off localized shmup aciton

Developer Rising Star Games released a localized trailer for Under Defeat HD Deluxe Edition today, courtesy of the PlayStation Blog.

The classic Japanese shoot 'em up (or "shmup") will include new features such as improved graphics, two-player mode, and New Order Mode, which extends the battlefield to twice the size of a typical shmup.

Under Defeat was originally released in Japan on the Sega Dreamcast in 2006. The game was released earlier this year in Japan and Europe on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and this will be the first time the game has seen a release in North America.

"One of the great things about localizing games for western audiences is giving fans the opportunity to experience their favorite titles in their native language, while providing newcomers a different take on a specific genre," wrote Rising Star marketing manager Yen Hau on the PlayStation Blog. "Another great aspect of localization is the ability to bring cult classics and underrated games back into the current marketplace, giving these games a chance to gain popularity among new audiences. This is the case with Under Defeat."
