imageMarvelous originally planned to publish Half-Minute Hero Second, a direct sequel to Half-Minute Hero, in November before bumping the PSP game back to winter. More specifically, February 10, 2011.


Half-Minute Hero Second has more content volume than the first game. Marvelous created five scenarios and a total of 90 quests for the game’s RPG mode. New features include an ad-hoc multiplayer mode plus an edit mode where players can create their own quests.

    A little disappointed that my favorite part of the original, Evil Lord 30, isn’t in it. If it does come over, I’ll still buy it though.

      No, you will buy it twice.

      Helpful hint: it says Japan at the top of the article.

    I’m curious as to how well the first Half-Minute Hero did over here in the USA, because I really want to get my hands on this game because I absolutely loved the first one. ;_;

    A smart move to make the whole game Hero 30, though I will slightly miss Princess 30 because that was kind of fun.

      Marvelous says they shipped 20,000 in North America.

      Note that “shipped” doesn’t mean “sold” and I believe the number doesn’t include digital downloads.

      Source is an old article on Siliconera about Marvelous game sales.

        Hope that was enough for XSEED to take on the sequel. It looks like it wouldn’t take too many resources and PSN can help as well. Just don’t want to see another Retro Game Challenge 2 incident.
