Guardian Heroes for XBLA will include original version


8:00 AM on 05.23.2011



The classic Sega Saturn game by Treasure, Guardian Heroes, is coming out at the end of Summer and it seems like a lot of you are excited for this based on the announcement post. Well prepare to get even happier as the original version will be included on top of the "re-mastered" version. The original version of the game will even be playable right from the start. You can even switch on the fly between the original and updated version during your playthrough if you want to!

The good news doesn't stop there. Sega was fortunate enough to get Treasure back to work on the first official re-release of a Sega Saturn game by Sega. As a Sega rep told me at the event where I saw Guardian Heroes, the "Saturn code is notoriously difficult to work with so getting that original developer was really key to making this project happen."

As for the "re-mastered" version, don't think of it as some kind of horrific port with a HD paint job. In fact, I thought I was looking at the original version of the game until it was pointed out to me it was the updated version. The enhanced version of the game will also feature up to two-player co-op online and offline, a 1-12 player battle mode, Time Attack and more.

All this will be going for 800 MS Points on Xbox Arcade by the end of Summer. It also looks like this will be a timed exclusive for the Xbox 360 as Sega didn't outright deny a PlayStation Network version. Until then, enjoy all the art Sega released which I'm sure will be used as avatars by a number of you.

Aaru's Awakening is all about movement

I’ve been interested in Aaru’s Awakening ever since its announcement captivated me with its hand-drawn art style. It’s pretty hard to pass up playing a game that looks the way Aaru’s Awakening does. Fr...more

Read the writing on the wall with Invisible, Inc.

Turn-based tactical espionage. Those words were all it took to sell me on the idea of Invisible, Inc. Going into the PAX demo, I knew I would have to be cunning, thoughtful, and sneaky if I wanted to successfully steal intell...more

I died an embarrassing amount in Hotline Miami 2

Anyone that has even the slightest bit of familiarity with Hotline Miami knows what defines it. The neon-swathed visuals, the gratuitous violence, the quick and unforgiving gameplay, and the blaring soundtrack all made the ga...more
