  • I really want to know what’s in the letter now! 
    Amazon says the game is set for Nov. 28 in the U.S.. Thinking of pre-ordering now ’cause Maruyama just wrote me a letter~♪

  • 30$ for everything?  brb preordering.

    edit: Amazon lists 40$…

    • Aoshi00

      Yeah, so is it $30 or $40?  Even though I pre-ordered from Newegg before w/ $10 off $40, so it’s $30 + tax…

      Wonder why it’s PS3 only for the US.. I’ve alrdy imported the Jpn 360 ver, but I would like to keep all my shmups/VNs on the 360 if possible.. 

      The cover might not have anime chars, but it’s actually a better reflection of the game..

  • Did they ever say if the European Xbox version is region free? My sticks are 360.

    • omenaaa

      It’s region locked.

  • Godmars

    Thought this was going to be DL?

    At least its $30.

  • SirRichard

    And all that for half the price of a regular game, to boot. Definitely going to pick it up, probably on the 360 to keep its shmup love going.

  • SH3

    What an generic, ugly ass cover. The collector in me is appalled.

  • Im getting this, but the I have to agree, the cover looks horrible

  • Zonic505

    Wow, $30? That’s quite a good deal for the bonus stuff, let alone the game itself. Neat to see they dropped the price by $10.

    Though yeah, that cover is just really bland.

  • Code

    rar, I’ll definitely be picking it up > w <~! It's a shame they didn't go with one of the Japanese covers though. Especially after A++ handling of Akai Katana, but really it's small potatoes, I won't sweat it, after putting themselves out there just localizing the game, this is more then enough for me to show my support to Rising Star o w <~! Now I'm just waiting on an exact release date u w u~!

  • AweOfShe

    Under Defeat is awesome, and this price is a steal. :)

    I’ll probably grab the domestic release as well, though probably not right away.

  • Pope The Rev XXVIII

    Why no love for the 360? that’s where the Shmup fans are.


    • M’iau M’iaut

      You will also find those fans on the Wii and the PS3 is not without that genre either.

      Please watch the name calling and blind insults. This isn’t the first time you have made such comments.
