I’m pretty darn-diddly-arned excited about the HD remake of Guardian Heroes coming to LIVE next month, even though I have a copy of the Japanese Saturn original sitting right in front of me.
It seems that a sequel is in the works, although it looks like the release of this is down to how well the remake sells. Treasure’s Hiroto Matsuura had the following to say:
“Originally, the project started as Guardian Heroes 2. The team that had been working on Sin & Punishment, after that project they wanted to start a new game.
The project started as Guardian Heroes 2, but the publisher – that’s SEGA – said in order to create a sequel, they wanted us to revitalize the IP. So instead of starting on the sequel we made a remake.”
Well, fingers crossed then.
