Cult classic from saturn era making an appearance onto your xbox 360 late summer/fall.
Yeah, Sega had announced this like 2 weeks ago, but I'm here to say that they are bringing back Guardian Heroes, a great cult classic back in the Sega Saturn era, to the XBLA. here's a trailer:
For those of you who don't know what Guardian Heores is, it's a great beat'em up developed by Treasure (Gunstar Heroes, Sin and Punishment, Dynamite Heady). it involves four characters (Han, Randy (with his pet rabbit, Nando), Nicole, Ginjirou) find the sword of a valiant warrior who has died some point before the game's beginning. Just as they were about to relax for the night, Serena (the former princess who has escaped the evil Kanon's takeover and joined the four characters in an attempt to stop him), enters the room quickly, warning the heroes that Kanon's knight has learned that they have the sword, and everyone splits up, meeting up at the graveyard that is nearby.
Upon arriving at the graveyard, they are met by the leader of the Black Knights, Valgar, and a powerful robotic warrior, the five warriors then went to battle with the robot, only to fail at dealing much damage to it. Just as Han was about to use the sword that they had found prior to the beginning of the game to fight aginst the robot, a bolt of lightning hits the sword, electrocuting Han, causing him to lose his grip on the sword. The sword, apparently now showing signs of life, hovers toward a mound of dirt within the graveyard, where a zombified warrior arose from it (in fact, the sword indeeds belong to this zombified warrior, seeing as how he was the one who had it before he died.). Enraged, the warrior destroyed the robot, and then started going after Serena. Nicole, not knowing what to do, asked the warrior st stop, and surprisingly, he stoped. realizing that the warrior will follow any of their orders. the five heroes, knowing that, with this warrior's help, could they begin their attack on Kanon's new kingdom.
After this point, the game itself can go into multiple braches, leading up to new seneraios, and of course, new endings. it also has a RPG element, in which as you level up your characters, you can determine how to set up their stats. As for the battle, you can battle on three different planes on the field (simply put, lines), which can give players multiple ways of attacking the enemies.
That's all I could put up for now. If you want to know more, follow the links below.
