Half Minute Hero: The Second Coming Hits Steam On April 4th

By Ishaan . April 1, 2014 . 11:01am

Marvelous have announced a release date for Half Minute Hero: The Second Coming. The game will be available via Steam for PC on April 4th.



Marvelous jokingly state that the game will cost $999.99 upon release, making it “the most expensive Steam game in the history of mankind”. Of course, that isn’t really how much it will cost, but attempts—even violent ones—to get producer Esteban Salazar to cough up the actual price proved futile.


The press release sent to us by Marvelous does state, however, that owners of the first Half Minute Hero game on Steam will receive a 25% discount on the second.


You can find a list of features that will be available in Half Minute Hero: The Second Coming in this prior report on the game.

    Only $999.99. I expected that greedy to Goddess gouge up the price a lot higher than that.

    I’m still waiting for that money she was “saving” for me when I decided to save the world instead of doing this: http://i35.tinypic.com/fo3ehx.jpg

      The Goddess just rewound time to make Hero forget about that money.

        I find it more likely that the Hero suffered side effects from being frozen for an extended period of time while only in his underwear.
