The latest issue of Famitsu has hit stands and it contains news on a sequel to the brilliant Half-Minute Hero. Called "Yuusha 30 Second" (the Japanese title for the original being "Yuusha 30"), there is slim but promising information on the just-announced title.
Yuusha 30 Second will feature an "Edit Mode" which I assume will allow players to create their own 30-second adventures. More importantly, the sequel is reported to sport a four-player competitive multiplayer mode.
As crazy as the later adventures in Half-Minute Hero could become, I can't imagine what it'll be like racing against three other people to kill an Evil Lord. Apart from being very fun. I can imagine that pretty well. Here's hoping XSEED has it in them to bring this one to the US as well.
