'Under Defeat HD' gets PlayStation 3 owners to the chopper this fall

Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition from G.rev comes to PlayStation 3 in North America this fall.

G.rev, the Japanese developer of numerous arcade shoot 'em ups, will finally have its helicopter shmup Under Defeat released stateside. Publisher Rising Star Games announced today it plans to bring Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition to the PlayStation 3 this fall.

Under Defeat takes place in an alternate universe in which a worldwide conflict between two factions, the Empire and Union, attempt to solve their differences with battles involving extremely powerful helicopters. The game was originally released in arcades in 2005 for Sega's Naomi platform, a hardware standard based on the Dreamcast. A Dreamcast port was later released in Japan.

Under Defeat HD builds upon the arcade original with new features, including improved graphics, dual-stick controls, a practice mode, and two display options: "Classic Arcade Mode" and "16:9 New Order Mode," which takes full advantage of high def widescreen TVs.

The deluxe edition will include a digital art book, all current downloadable content, a soundtrack CD, and a letter from the CEO of G.rev, Hiroyuki Maruyama, who is also Under Defeat's executive producer.

Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition will be available on Blu-ray disc and via the PlayStation Network for $39.99. While an Xbox 360 version was released in Japan earlier this year, publisher Rising Star Games says the game is exclusive to the PS3 in North America.
