Guardian Heroes: Classic Sega Saturn Game Heading to XBLA

If you enjoyed playing the Guardian Heroes game on the Sega Saturn video games console when it first released back in 1996, then you might be pleased to know that Sega has just confirmed that the classic game is indeed heading to XBLA sometime this autumn.

As Mike Jackson at recently noted, although the Guardian Heroes game for Xbox Live Arcade is mostly a port, the HD remake will come with some new features such as all-new modes of play, enhanced graphics and new online co-op and battle modes.

However, the recently released screenshots — which can be viewed at CVG (courtesy of GamerSyde) — have been causing a bit of debate regarding the enhanced graphics, as they don’t look that impressive. You shouldn’t let that put you off the upcoming action-RPG though.

The Guardian Heroes game will enable players to choose one of four heroes to level up, as they guide them along a branching storyline that comes with five different endings. You can either play the game’s Story Mode alone, or perhaps the Versus Mode with up to 12 players.

Guardian Heroes will feature a number of different modes including Arrange Mode, Arcade Mode and even Time Attack Mode. Have you ever played the Guardian Heroes game on the Sega Saturn?
