Recommended Posts

Finalmente, após anos e anos à espera de uma re-release, aí está o jogo que me vai fazer comprar um cartão de pontos na XBLA.



Today is a very exciting day in community, it’s always a treat when we bring out a game that we know is going to excite our fans. What better way to do this than to announce the return of a true SEGA gem from the Saturn era: Guardian Heroes! Read on for the full press release…

SEGA of America, Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. today announced the upcoming re-release of Guardian Heroe, a classic Action-RPG Brawler by celebrated developers Treasure. Originally released for the SEGA Saturn™ in 1996, Guardian Heroes has been re-mastered with enhanced graphics, online co-op and battle modes, all-new modes of play, and more. The game will be available via Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft this fall.

“Ever since we began to make SEGA’s classic Dreamcast and Genesis / Mega Drive titles available for modern systems, the fan response has been overwhelming – and the demand for their favorite games has been pouring in,” said Haruki Satomi, VP of Digital Business at SEGA. “Players have been clamoring for this treasured favorite from the Saturn days, and we cannot wait to show them what we have got for them – all of the fantastic side-scrolling action, branching story paths, and distinct characters, now in a fully HD, widescreen presentation with online support. ”

Guardian Heroes brings the Saturn favorite to life with new HD graphics, presenting Treasure’s iconic fast-paced gameplay on a new generation of hardware, with all of the convenience of purchase via instant download. The game also features:

Action-RPG Brawling: Choose one of four heroes to level up and guide along a branching storyline with five different endings

Friends, Foes, and Fighters: Play the game’s Story Mode alone or with a second player, or challenge Versus Mode with up to 12 players at once

Extended Gameplay: Time Attack Mode, Arcade Mode, Arrange Mode and more allow players to explore every nuance of 45 different fighters

Fully Re-Mastered: All-new graphics and visual effects bring the classic to life in a completely high-definition, widescreen presentation

Despite below-average sales, Guardian Heroes is often considered to be one of the greatest games for the Sega Saturn and the beat'em up genre by both critics and fans. Its music was also praised, combining electronically composed tracks with electric guitar and saxophones.

Para quem nunca jogou, imaginem um beat-'em-up à la Double Dragon, Streets of Rage, Final Fight, juntem-lhe uma data de caminhos e finais alternativos(DnD para Arcade), XP/Elementos RPG para levlar a personagem e um multiplayer com uma shitload de personagens disponíveis.

É o meu jogo preferido de todos os tempos, teve o azar de sair exclusivamente numa consola com um lifespan muito curto e como tal, há muita gente que não o jogou. Para quem quiser experimentar, há emuladores e isos dele por aí.
