Heads up for fans of great shmups, Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition (PS3 only as of right now) is available for preorder from:

Amazon (29.99):

http://www.amazon.co...ds=under defeat

Newegg (29.99) (DISCONTINUED: probably won't ever be shipped from Newegg, now an Amazon exclusive):

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16879797001

This was recently listed as an Amazon exclusive, and the XBox 360 EU retail version is region-locked; so no North American version for 360 at this time. If you like shmups and want to support Rising Star Games in their North American releases of great shmups (like Akai Katana which was also recently released), please preorder this game!

Sorry that this is not technically a "deal", but its always a big deal when a great shmup is localized for North America.

We'll have to wait and see

Is there a reason why the release dates aren't the same?

Hmm, doesn't say whether it includes the gameplay DVD and outer slipcover box like the Japanese deluxe version. I bought that one awhile ago, never got around to opening it. Debating if I should sell that now and get the U.S. release instead.

Thanks for posting, OP. And thank you, Rising Star Games, for bringing some of these titles to the U.S. I sincerely hope you make money doing it.

Here's some additional info. It sounds like it comes with all the extras (kinda.. digital art book). It's coming out for both 360 and PS3 in Europe, but only the PS3 for the US.

Product Features
The most requested remake in G.rev?s library

Regarded within the shmup community as one of the all-time classic games

The original Dreamcast version pushed the console to the limit, becoming one of its best selling games

Both game and developer have a great reputation within the large shmup community

Thanks for the heads up, OP. Looks a lot like Zero Gunner 2, another Dreamcast release.

Thanks OP. In for 1.

This works with the Newegg $10 off pre-orders promo code: BTENANF35.

So this is therefore a deal!

Found this dead link while googling, looks like the Xbox 360 version may be a download-only release for North America?

Also want to mention that I own both the Dreamcast import and the PS3 LE, and is an amazing shmup worthy of any collection.

The game is fan-fucking-tastic. The DC version is probably my favorite shooter on the system and probably within my top 5 of all time. $40 is a good value but most will scoff at the price. Their loss.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

The story may have been talking about retail releases only, or might be a more recent development as the story is dated 8/22. But could also be accurate, too soon to tell. The fact that there was such a link to an Xbox Marketplace listing for it though would suggest that it was a plan at some point.

I am guessing Akai Katana probably didnt do too well.

It's more so because MS is really strict requiring publishers to print at least 50k copies of a game. That's why 360 does not get too many niche games released via retail these days (SCEA tends to just deny games which are JP voices only with ENG text).

Definitely preordering.

Not a fan of the cover, but it is nice to see one of these types of games coming here at retail for once. In fact, this is the ONLY PS3 shmup that's come to retail in NA afaik. Are there any others?

Not very CAGly to preorder at this price. Akai Katana didn't take long to drop to a much more manageable $20. If you're PS3 only, your shump library is even smaller, but still, buying every one of these at release is almost, at this point, like buying every new regenerating health cover shooter at release. Sure, they're fun, but odds are good there are plenty of older ones you can explore while waiting for the new hotness to drop to a much more reasonable price

It'll most likely drop, but I'm going to show my support for shmups on the PS3 and buy it at full price. Thanks OP!

That's my opinion as well, I know this will drop in price, but I want to support RSG for releasing this in North America. They are taking a big chance by localizing this fantastic shmup, and I am more than willing to support them; already have two copies on order.

As for other comments about a 360 version, I honestly think Microsoft has totally dropped the ball on approving this for retail distribution. As chunlirocks said, the 360 has been a fantastic home to great shmups, and this game belongs on that platform (for North America, I know its coming out in EU) as well. If there is no NA 360 release, I would hope that the EU release would be region-free, like Dodonpachi Resurrection was. I hate having digital distribution as the only option, when other regions (locked) get retail, boxed releases. Thankfully this will come out on PS3, this is a nice coup for Sony, considering they have almost no shmups out in NA for retail PS3 at all.
