Half-Minute Hero Sequel Announced

By Spencer . August 3, 2010 . 7:01pm

imageAnd no we’re not talking about the side-scrolling spiritual successor also developed by Opus Studio. Famitsu has news about sequel to Half-Minute Hero called Yuusha 30 Second for PSP.


Aside from the clever title we don’t have much information… yet. Scans haven’t leaked out, but reports from message boards peg Marvelous as the publisher.


Update: Unconfirmed details from message boards claim Yuusha 30 Second has a four player battle mode and edit mode.

    As Ric Flair would say it. Wooo!!

  • Wow. I loved the first a lot, but it was a bit too short. If they can add a few new modes, this would be near-perfect. And… get the same musicians who did the first game’s soundtrack. Yeah, it’s too early to worry. but I can’t help it.

    • Apparently, less progressive and energetic, more brooding/playful. Still, Shimomura and Mitsuda, among others? Absolutely.

    • Zanasea

      For now, the five known composers are Kenji Ito, Yoko Shimomura, Yasunori Mitsuda, Masashi Hamauzu and Motoi Sakuraba.

    I’m so looking forward to this. I’ve been trying to 100% Hero 30 lately.

  • ECM

    I loved the RPG component, but the rest of the game was pretty much throw-away, so here’s hoping they either extend that part and/or put a lot more effort into the other genres.

  • 100% bought

  • i loved the first one but i played it way too much and beat it in a couple of days when the next one comes out i won’t play it as much to make it last longer

  • They could make the sequel Hero-only and I’d play it. The Hero games were the only ones I cared about.

  • DEF a must buy.

  • jj984jj

    I hope they improve the other modes, but more importantly I hope XSEED can secure this.

  • Ereek

    My “want” level is through the roof.

    japan needs some new music composers badly. you can’t just keep using the same people all the time.

  • Yesssss, I can’t wait!

  • At last, Full Minute Hero is finally confirmed!

    • You are my hero. *slow clap*

      • When it comes to comedy, it’s better to try and fail than to succeed at doing nothing.

  • BTA

    I played and enjoyed the demo of Half-Minute Hero, so it’s been on my list of games to pick up when I have spare cash. Good to know that they’ll be more of it.

  • evilmoogle

    yeah…hell yeah.

  • oh my ❤Do want. Will buy.
    (…Unless they completely screw things up somehow, which seems unlikely.)

  • HMH was one of my favorite games of last year, but you know how some things just don’t need a sequel?

    Yeah, this is one of them >_>

  • I’m not sure how I feel about this, but apparently everyone who was hoping for an all-Hero sequel is in luck: http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2010/08/04/half_minute_hero_sequel/

    This better mean all five scenarios get ranking boards, MMV!
