While homebrew developers like NG:Dev Team continue to supply the Dreamcast with new titles long after its demise, arcade shooter developer G.rev was supporting the console in its final moments, with a port of Under Defeat arriving as one of the Dreamcast's final three retail releases in Japan.

Fondly recalling the Dreamcast with a heavy heart and tears in its eyes (or so I'd imagine), G.rev announced the upcoming release of Under Defeat HD for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The upcoming port will be released in Japan in 2012; an overseas release has not yet been announced.

Inspired by Psikyo's Zero Gunner series, Under Defeat is a vertically scrolling shooter in which players can alter the angle of their shots to a limited extent. Depending on who you talk to, it's either a fitting end to the Dreamcast's reign or an uninspired shooter with crappy cone trees. Hopefully, the tree graphics will be tightened up during the game's transition to HD.
