Guardian Heroes For Xbox 360 Is $10, Slated For "Summer" In Japan

By Spencer . May 11, 2011 . 11:38pm

The news about Treasure’s Sega Saturn beat ’em up, Guardian Heroes, coming to Xbox 360 was announced in North America first. Sega Japan just caught up and opened a teaser site for the game with a bit more information and this screenshot of versus mode.


While there are only five characters for story mode, Guardian Heroes lets you pick heroes and enemies for an all out brawl in versus mode. There are 45 different characters to choose from and up to 12 can duke it out online or offline. Versus mode supports up to four players.




Guardian Heroes will cost 800 Microsoft Points ($10) when it launches this summer in Japan. Wait a second… Sega of America announced Guardian Heroes as a "fall" title. Are we getting Guardian Heroes earlier or is this a case of Japan counting September as summer since autumn doesn’t start until the end of the month? (This happens from time to time with release windows.)

    Just when I thought $15 was the new $10 for XBL/PSN.

    • There’s more DLC in games in exchange for that lower starting price, right?

      In either case, MS should definitely release a treasure retail disc with all their XBLA releases :-P.

  • Kris

    So that’s, what, about 1/15th of what I’ve seen that go for on the Saturn? I know it’s a cliche, but… DAY ONE.

    Sigh. Still no PSN then.

    If only I’m Tony-Stark-rich, I already bought an XBox 360 a long time ago just for games like this.

    • Pretty obvious @playstation:twitter #SCEA is anti-2D, no? ;)

      • Code

        Or maybe it has something to do with nearly all Treasure’s recent HD ports have been only on 360; and this doesn’t appear to be any different~? hmm~!

  • At this point, if I rebuy a 360 it’ll be specifically for the smaller DL games and indie stuff.

    Ugh, hate this exclusive stuff.

  • Phenomenal value, figured this one would be a shoe-in for 1200 pts

  • mikanko

    Since XBLA pretty much always has games released in both countries on the same day I kinda suspect this will be the same.

    As for no PSN comments, it’s the same reason Guwange, Rez, and other popular niche titles appear on 360 and not PSN. They’re niche titles, and it’s become clear it’s cheaper to release games for a lot of people on 360. I remember an interview with G-Rev where they said as much, though they’d hope to look at PS3 in the future, the dev kit cost made it prohibitive at the time.

  • I wanted 4 player online ! and Valgar as a unlockable story mode character!
    OH MY GOD its 800 points !

    forget i said anything !

  • hey I heard there were only 2 player story mode is that true I mean you cant play with 4 players in the story mode at all? I hope people will play online with me still if you can do a 2 player mode I am still love the game but I want a 4 player story mode
