Turn off the Lights

Guardian Heroes on Xbox Live this October

There
has been, in certain quarters of the gaming world, a frenetic buzz around the announcement
that classic action-RPG-brawler Guardian Heroes would be released
with shiny, updated HD graphics on Xbox Live Arcade since the story was
announced back in May.  The hype is
surely due to intensify with the news today that the game will be released on
October 12th, for a mere 800 Microsoft points.


Guardian
Heroes

garnered a strong following for its branching storylines; players can choose
from one of five distinct characters and experience more than half a dozen
possible endings based on their actions in the game.  This was enhanced by the addition of a Karma
meter (which changed depending on whether the player killed civilians or showed
mercy to enemies).  With fully-remastered
HD graphics (in a similar vein to the facelift that was given to Super Street
Fighter II Turbo HD when that was released on Xbox Live Arcade) and added
online co-op for up to 12 players, it seems as though this re-release will
retain everything that made the original game great and add some extra polish
to win modern gamers over.
