Treasure planning Guardian Heroes sequel

Speaking to Eurogamer, Treasure’s Hiroto Matsuura revealed that the upcoming HD re-release of Saturn brawler Guardian Heroes began life as a sequel. “The project started as Guardian Heroes 2, but the publisher [Sega] said in order to create a sequel, they wanted us to revitalise the IP. So instead of starting on the sequel we made a remake.” Should said remake – which will be released on Xbox Live Arcade on October 12 – prove successful, a sequel could yet see the light of day. “The original core game mechanic is a 2D, layer-based game, and that’s what we like about it,” Matsuura said. “We may create characters and backgrounds in 3D, but the core mechanics will be the same.”
