Sega have made some great games. Every now and then I see or hear something that reminds me just what an awesome company they were in the days of the Master System and Mega Drive. The unfortunate decline that set in with the still awesome Saturn and the criminally undervalued Dreamcast genuinely annoys me.
So, the re-release of their classic games is something I like to see. Crazy Taxi brought its finely tuned madness to the Download stores last year and many of the legendary 8- and 16-bit classics are already available just about everywhere. Well, now it’s the turn of Guardian Heroes, one of the precursors to the modern love for action RPGs.
Originally released on the Sega Saturn in 1996, this is much loved, co-op, brawling RPG has been visually enhanced and given full network connectivity so you can hook up with a co-op buddy online or fight against others in versus battles with up to 12 players. There will also be new game modes to allow the 45 characters plenty of opportunity to shine.
There is no firm release date as yet but we’ll keep you posted.
