Half-Minute Hero Second Hit With A Second Delay

By Ishaan . January 17, 2011 . 8:01am

Half-Minute Hero Second was originally supposed to release in 2010. Marvelous had the game pegged for a November 4th release, but delayed it to February, offering a free demo for players to try out in its place.


Unfortunately, the game won’t be making its February date either. The PSP game has been pushed back from its February 10th release to a vague 2011 timeframe, with Marvelous citing various reasons for the delay and offering their apologies.


The first time they delayed the game, Marvelous said it was to improve the quality of the product. This second delay sounds like it could involve a few more factors.

  • Why does it always happen to the games I’m interested?

  • But I cant read Japanese, what are these various reasons? Delaying it for the PSP2, launch title, 3DS version?

    • Ishaan would have put the reasons in the article if he knew. Marvelous is simply saying they’re delaying it for various reasons. There’s no point in speculating them.

      Are you even interested in this game?

        That’s strange. I remember the first didn’t have voice acting from the youtube videos I saw of it. Why would Trist be interested in it?

        And Japanese is so easy to learn to read, it just takes too much time to learn all the kanji. Even it’s grammar is easy, not as easy as chinese, but easier than english.

    Delayed but it only has NES graphics!!! lol Dumb joke sorry. Bummed it’s delayed, just hope that means the game will be that much better when it’s released (and hope Xseed will bring a localization our way too). Can’t wait.

    • Maybe’s it’s delayed to avoid competition… Probably it’s for the best

      • Zero_Destiny

        Oh I hate when that happens. Oh well if it boost sales I guess I can’t complain, but it would of been cool if it was because of what Pichi said or something close to it at least.

        • We can always hope, dood :3

  • Pichi

    I would be nice if the other modes from the previous game were a bonus in the game. If ranks returned, those modes would be a nice reward.

    • Knight 30 was boring and sluggish. The other modes can come back if they want.

      • Pichi

        Surprisingly, Knight 30 became one of my favorite modes. Speeding up time and figuring out the “trick” to do so quickly fun. Princess 30 was my least favorite, but still alright.
