Guardian Heroes HD Coming To XBLA

Guardian Heroes HD Coming To XBLA

Sega Saturn’s cult classic Guardian Heroes is being remade and re-released in HD for XBLA.  Released in 1996 by Treasure, this side-scrolling beat-em-up included RPG elements and an open-path story different from typical brawlers at the time.  While it’s become standard fare by today’s standards, many fans have been eagerly awaiting a re-release of this game, and hopefully Treasure can hit an even greater audience this time around.

Gameplay will be nearly unchanged aside from an “Arranged Mode” said to slightly tweak the enemy AI.  Unfortunately, Sega isn’t going all out for the re-release, opting instead for slightly enhanced graphics.  Aside from graphical improvements, the game boasts online c0-op, new modes, and a battle-mode supporting up to 12 players (human or AI).

There’s been no word yet on a release date, but Vivid Gamer will keep you updated as details come in.
