Despite being a vertical shoot-em-up, Under Defeat is ideally suited for HD widescreen life, as former Managing Editor JC Fletcher explained back in 2012. That HD "New Order" mode - which sadly doesn't have anything to do bizarre love triangles or blue Mondays - is part of the new Xbox 360 version, which is available now to download for $20.
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.
