No one’s announced any publishing plans for Half-Minute Hero Second for the U.S., but according to Amazon and Play.com, Rising Star games will, unsurprisingly, resume their publishing duties for Marvelous Entertainment games.
Both Amazon and Play have Half-Minute Hero 2 listed for release on October 21st. Following several delays, Japan will get the game a little earlier on August 4th.
The extended development time allowed Marvelous to include features that may not have made it into the game otherwise, due to time constraints. Among these is the scenario maker, but producer, Kenichiro Takaki, tells us there’s more to be revealed.
Update: Rising Star are not the publisher handling Half-Minute Hero Second in Europe. See this post for more details.
