Originally released for the Sega Saturn in 1996, it’s an epic scrolling fighter with multiple routes, a large number of characters, and lots of pseudo RPG elements. It’s arguably one of the best examples of the genre since Street Of Rage 2, and Treasure has significantly improved its new digital update.
Guardian Heroes HD offers enhanced visuals, a brand new set of combat options (don’t worry the originals are still there) and lots of online capabilities. In short it’s the definitive version of an already excellent game. Look out for our review in issue 96 of Retro Gamer.
