Publisher Rising Star Games invites us all to travel back to the halcyon days of 2005 for this indie-developed shooter for SEGA’s defunct system.
This NAOMI-engine shooter was created by Japanese developer G.rev for arcades back in ’05 and one year later made the leap to consoles on the Dreamcast. Now there are a lot of quirks to this particular title: one, well, it was a Dreamcast game in 2006; two, its a top-down helicopter shooter that puts you in the cockpit of a chopper piloted by what’s essentially a Nazi (the German members of the game’s “Empire” against the nefarious members of the English-speaking “Union.”
So there’s that.
The HD remake is coming to the PS3 this fall with a new 16:9 presentation, improved artwork, textures, shading, and, you know, bad German dudes. (Along with the comedy manga Hetalia: Axis Powers, Japan’s been continuing to try to cute up WWII). The Deluxe Edition version of Under Defeat will include a digital art book, all of the DLC, a soundtrack CD from the New Order Mode, and a letter from the game’s Executive Producer and G.rev CEO, Hiroyuki Maruyama.
I’ve included some stills from the game along with its PS3 box art:
