Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax’s New Look For Xbox 360

Marvelous gave Half-Minute Hero a facelift of sorts for Xbox 360. Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax introduces neo cartoon mode, which turns the pixilated characters into sprites.

For me, part of Half-Minute Hero’s charm were the pixilated characters. So I’m glad Marvelous left retro mode in, which uses the same graphics as the PSP version.

Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax only has Hero 30 mode where players have 30 seconds to save the world from destruction. While you can rewind time by paying the Time Goddess, Half-Minute Hero is designed as a lightning fast RPG. Monster fights, leveling up, and even dungeons take seconds to complete. The Xbox 360 game has an additional 62 missions and online multiplayer where it’s a race against other players to save the world.


Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax will be available on June 29 for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).

  • But does it have the entire story?

      I hope it does. Since they cut out the other modes, hopefully they added five-minute and 3 sec hero after beating the main game if they don’t count it with the original 30 sec hero. But that will cause a bit of confusion if they don’t add the Knight and Princess into the 30 sec hero mode.

  • Pure love..
    But why not on PS3, why?!

    Ohh lucky i thought the game pics will be one on the first pics which will really kills my interest for the game as the pixel char is one of the main attraction and i hope those 62 mission all have new kind of story inside is it? or it is just a recycle from PSP version?

    Neo cartoon mode is really ugly, it looks like a bad Cartoon Network rip-off :
