Hey Gunstar Heroes Fans, Gunhound EX Is Rapid Firing Onto PSP

By Spencer . August 28, 2012 . 3:00pm

gunhDracue created a sweet run and gun shooter that’s a spiritual sequel to Assault Suits Leynos II called Gunhound EX. The game is out now for PC and it’s coming to PSP on December 20 care of G.rev.


Gunhound EX is pretty reasonably priced too. 3,129 yen ($40) gets you a physical copy and a downloadable version is just 2,500 yen ($32). Dengeki PlayStation reports there will be a limited edition with a soundtrack CD for 5,229 yen ($66). If you enjoyed Gunstar Heroes and like mecha you might want to keep an eye out for Gunhound EX.

    Definitely interested .___. Looks really good~ Haven’t tried it yet but apparently a trial version of the original PC doujin release can be downloaded here owo; As well as a link to the PC retail version for download, but it’s a little more than the physical PSP release o~o; http://doujin-gp.blogspot.be/2010/02/armored-soldier-gunhound.html 

    Also really nice move on G.Rev part grabbing it and publishing on PSN, might actually be a good idea for G.Rev to help build up some funds on the side of their own projects, to publish some good indie/doujin releases >w<;

      I remember the frantic mech vs mech arena matches and that armored truck escort mission on Assault Suits Leynos 2 on Sega Saturn. I was constantly replaying missions to unlock more money and uber upgrades. Its like a precursor to Armored Core, but with the 2D fun of Metal Slug. Glad I’m not the only one who likes this and kudos to whoever brought us this news!

    downloads are just as physical. 

  • For how much I dislike platform/shooters, I fell in love with the “Assault Suit” serie, expecially Valken on the SNES.
    I so miss this kind of games!
    Looking forward to this Gunhound!!!…

  • more cybernator/leynos than gunstar heroes, but i’m pretty sure there is crossover in fan base…
