It has taken quite some time, but Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition has finally made its way to Xbox 360 in North America. Unfortunately, unlike the PS3 version that was released at the end of 2012, this edition is digital only via Games on Demand. But it does retail for $19.99, which seems fair. I’ve heard really good things about Under Defeat but haven’t had a chance to try it for myself, and I plan on doing so very soon. I do find it a bit funny that I just bought a PS3 recently and this was one of the titles I got it for, but now it’s on a system I already had. In any case, Rising Star continues to be a supporter of localizing shmups for consoles, and I am very happy about that.

Rising Star Games Inc. today announced that the best-selling, highly-regarded classic shmup (shoot ’em up) arcade game, Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition, is now available for $19.99 on Xbox 360 Games on Demand across North America.

Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition offers players even more bullets for their gaming buck by building off of the classic arcade version and adding an all-new set of upgrades and gameplay modes. Among the list of new features: dual stick compatibility and destructive realism, which presents a refined iteration of the original with improved artwork, and HD textures and refined shadowing. In addition, the game includes two engaging player modes: the Classic Arcade Mode, and a 16:9 aspect ratio New Order Mode, which takes advantage of HD televisions and monitors – showcasing high quality graphics through the Xbox 360. Moreover, practice versions of both modes will also be available to players looking to refine their shooting skills.
