Guardian Heroes HD remake coming to XBLA

Guardian Heroes was a Beat Em Up created by Treasure for the Sega Saturn and it is well-known for being one of the best games they ever made (Along with Radiant Silvergun which ironically was also on the Saturn… and is also being ported to XBLA). Guardian Heroes is part of Treasure’s XBLA conquest, with their XBLA consisting of Ikaruga, Bangai O HD: Missile Fury (Which came out on XBLA yesterday and it’s really awesome), Radiant Silvergun which is set to come out sometime this year and now Guardian Heroes soon after that. Unlike the previous games, the HD remake will not be done by Treasure themselves but will instead be done by SEGA. SEGA plans to include; HD visuals (obviously), Online co-op play (For anyone disappointed with Scott Pilgrim), Arranged modes, and a new battle mode that allows up to 12 players to play at once (The original Guardian Heroes had a versus mode that potentially gave you selection of 45 characters to play as, including boss characters). Unfortunately, there is no news of a release date yet although if you’re dying to play a Treasure game, why not give Bangai O: Missile Fury a try.
