'Half-Minute Hero' (ALL) Gets A Sequel

by Rainier on Aug. 4, 2010 @ 6:19 p.m. PDT

Half-Minute Hero is a bold new concept of having the player save the world, 30 seconds at a time. The player must fight, shoot, summon, and protect in four distinct modes, each containing a different perspective and unique gameplay style, across a total of 120 varied stages. The 8-bit graphics and story elements provide a unique style and humor, while the hard-rocking soundtrack keeps pace with the breakneck speed of gameplay.

The sequel will keep its current look but will open the game up a bit more with the ability to stop time and explore the map/world, as well as feature 90 quests across five different story scenarios, a four-player cooperative and competitive gameplay, a quest editor, and a Survival mode.
