No matter what device you play Half-Minute Hero on, PSP, Xbox 360 or PC, the game is brilliant. Marvelous AQL eventually released a Japan-only sequel for PSP that was all Hero 30 mode, but that was two years ago. What’s going on with Half-Minute Hero now?
It looks like Marvelous AQL is planning something since they filed a trademark for Ran Ran Hero, a name that might be a pun because "Ranran" can be read as flaming. On top of having "Hero" in the title, Ran Ran Hero’s hero looks pretty similar to the Half-Minute Hero art style.
Marvelous AQL also filed a trademark for Maguna’s Taboo in Japan too.
