Hero 30 Second Really Gets JP Date, Half-Minute Hero Goes XBLA
Lots of news for Marvelous' franchise as of late.
05.25.11 - 11:39 PM

Hero 30 Second has been delayed time and time again in Japan, by much more than 30 seconds each time. But will the new date for Marvelous' PlayStation Portable follow-up to Half-Minute Hero stick? We hope so, because fans of the first title would love to see this one eventually make it out West, too.

Hero 30 Second boasts a new edit mode, a survival mode called 'Infinite Hero,' and can support up to four players on ad-hoc. The new Japanese date is August 4th, and can be purchased at retail for 4980 yen, or via download for 3980 yen.

In other Half-Minute Hero news, the first title will soon be seen again - this time, on Xbox Live Arcade. Revealed in this week's Famitsu to be titled Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax, this version has the option between a retro, pixellated look and a 'Neo Cartoon' design; as well, players will find 62 new quests and an online multiplayer mode.

Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax is set to hit Xbox Live in Japan on June 29th for 800 Microsoft points ($10). The title was actually leaked earlier, by an Australian ratings board, so it's very likely we'll see the title in other regions as well.

UPDATE:
Thanks to GamePro we get our first look at Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax. The first six screens are a mixture of the pixel style and the 'Neo Cartoon' one... and they're in English. Guess that answers the 'international release' question, as does the confirmation that the June 29th date (and 800 MSP price tag) also applies to North America.
