  1. Add this game to PSN and Ill get it and make all my PS3 friends get it, this game was  freaking awesome back in the Sega Saturn, I love it!!! Make a number 2 already! Sometimes I believe Sega is not on the top because don´t want it!!

  2. Knocking a graphic option is an odd complaint, especially when the first sentence of this video review, it is stated it's completely optional. I want to know why the remix graphics option is even considered a downer by IGN- I mean, all these other "HD" remakes have terrible smudge-ridden water-color graphics when turning on their 'HD' graphics, yet with Guardian Heroes at least they tried and penciled in some shades to add a more 'comic' look with the Remixed graphics.

  3. The remixed graphics imo are better, Im a retro gamer at heart but the graphics are def, a step up from the saturn. Also you guys didnt mention the game mechanics they added with the remix. There are light medium and heavy attacks now, no more hitting a button and flipping through your spells. you can do them with street fighter like button patterns. Also you can dash in mid air, and run forever. In the original you could run for a couple steps then you would stop. The new mechanics are better

  4. Oh god, please, for THE LOVE OF GOD. Don't start a fucking console war. PS3 has great exclusives. The XBOX has great exclusives. They are essentially the same console, bu minor differences.

  5. So I learned on gametyrant.co that Agastuma Entertainment is developing and neoseeker says they are equipped with some Guardian Heroes Developers. Doesn't look like we will see TREASURE's name on this one. The game looks startlingly similar to Guardian heroes. Kinda disappointed though, I like Treasure games because they strive to innovate and not make the same game twice. That's one of the reasons I appreciate Advance Guardian Heroes, they didn't just slap a new coat of paint on an old code.

  6. thanks. How did you find this out? I have been hearing rumors about TREASURE's nameless 3DS time and all my sources, including TREASURE's own website, have nothing on it.

  7. I've played castle crashers, got all the achievements and it's a great game 😛
    This game also looks pretty fun and i ain't no SEGA fanboy either, tbh this game DOES however looks like a lotta fun 😀

  8. am i missing something here? I loved the original gfx but the retouched hd gfx look amazing – the game is still the same so its a win win – clearer detail and just as chaotic!!! One of the finest beat em ups made – dont hesitate to DL!!!!

  9. @VirtuaFighter5R Yeah, I don't get how people couldn't realize that this game is one of the primary inspirations for Castle Crashers, and made 12 years prior to boot. This game is the absolute shit. I remember playing this back in 97 or so and pooling our friends multitaps and controllers so we could play the six-player multiplayer, which is crazy-awesome.
