Ok, who likes old Sega Saturn games that have a little in common with Streets of Rage? Ok, you at the back, Sega has got something for you.

    FFFFFFFFF YES. This is a game that made me wish I had had a Saturn years ago. I'll be definitely giving this one a whirl when it releases.

    Not to be that guy but...

    Did you mean Final Fight instead of Fatal Fury?

    I believe he did, so I made another choice, entirely appropriate. As for the game itself, maybe now people who didn't own a Saturn can play it some appreciation will come widely.

    Now developers don't want to take risks developing for PSN... Thanks hackers!

    While I'm not really interested in beat 'em ups, this raises my hopes that they will release MegaCD/Saturn games for XBLA! Like Shining the Holy Ark and Shining Force CD and 3. And all the other good stuff I missed out because the Saturn pretty much never really existed in my country.

    Mega CD? Don't get your hopes up, Sega's done its best to ignore that system's existence ever since it died. The Shining games on Saturn are snarled in a tangle of hate between Sega and Camelot, so don't expect them either. Only things Sega owns the rights to in full have a shot. Though, assuming Victor Ireland can be convinced, that might mean Dragon Force is eligible.

    Sucks that it's not announced for PSN. Apparently that means I have to dust off my Saturn to play it. Ah, well.

    Nobody wants to announce anything for PSN / PS3 right now; it's too toxic to be associated with currently. So while I don't know if this will be PSN, don't automatically assume if it wasn't announced now it won't be.

    Oh, come on. We're gamers. If we can't overreact to a lack of news, what CAN we do? It would totally cramp our style! :D

    I'm less concerned about the gamers and more concerned how the popular media is warping things like nuts. I was on break at work the other day, saw a news report claiming 200 million credit cards were stolen (lolwat), including those of the new tablet users (wait, what?). Yeah gamers are losing their tempers -- and it's understandable to a degree -- but the news frenzy is making things soooo much worse.

    Whoomp's post makes me feel better that it will be coming to PSN. It looks AWESOME! The atmosphere they create with the backgrounds and characters is such a classic and feel-good fantasy. It reminds me a lot of the Slayers anime. So what can people who have played it say about it? tellmetellmetellme!!!

    Amazing! I loved this game back on the Saturn, me and my friends used to play it allllllllllllllllll the time. Considering my saturn doesn't work anymore, I'll be more than happy to get it.

    Actually, comparing it to Fatal Fury kind of makes sense, considering it has separate horizontal planes that you switch between like the earlier Fatal Fury games did instead of having you freely sidestep up and down single a wide plane like most 2D beat-em-ups. This lets you use one-on-one fighter style moves that require inputing directional combinations.

    Perhaps I am the one in error then. Early 90's fighting games are my 2nd game obsession next to late 90's RPG's. I usually deal with Final Fight and Fatal Fury getting mixed up when I'm talking to a newcomer to the genre, so I might have been a bit hasty.

    Isn't that "Dungeon Fighter Online", that's supposedly coming to XBLA, quite similar?

    It's possible I suppose, but somehow telling if it took 15 years for another company to try ripping off Treasure's title.
    Also, Treasure itself is supposedly handling the conversion to XBLA. That's undoubtedly a good thing, but it means any other Saturn releases depend on Sega getting the original developer interested in the job.

    I have played Dungeon Fighter Online; it isn't anything like Guardian Heroes. If anything, DFO is much more like the D&D Beat'em ups that were in the arcades (and released on the Saturn in Japan).

    One other important point that needs to be made; DFO is okay, Guardian Heroes is the best game in the genre.

    Get hyped!

    Imagine if Legend of Eldean gets re-released!

    Go right ahead and imagine. That's what it'll take, since Working Designs did the localization of that game, and Victor Ireland would have to give his assent for it to be re-released, assuming anyone actually acts upon the idea and puts it on some other system. Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean isn't in the same league as Guardian Heroes, anyway.

    Well at least Sunsoft and Gaijin Works are active. I saw some videos about Guardian Heroes on Youtube and yes I want to play this game and I will buy it if it hits PSN.

    What was the dude with the black armour and dual-wielding swords named? Valgar? Vargas?

    I dunno. I still remember playing the Versus mode with that guy. Whenever you do his spinning uppercut-slash move thingie, sounds like he's going "Hobbits! Hobbits!"

    Not to mention, his theme was so awesome.

    Memories. =D

    When it hits PSN I will be so happy to get it no doubt about it. This one seems so random, but amazing. I've seen some of the gameplay screens and it looks beautiful no doubt about it.

    The GBA sequel doesn't really compare with the original though, but that may be mostly due to the limits of the GBA.

    Like most Treasure sequels, Advance Guardian Heroes is its own animal entirely. Not without its charms, and I did play through the thing about a dozen times (partly because it's short enough to make that very easy), but quite different than its progenitor. The music quality is also absolutely horrid, showing how lousy the GBA's sound system is, though the tunes themselves are good.
