About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Ubisoft today announced that Advance Guardian Heroes has shipped for the GBA. The sequel to Guardian Heroes, the critically-acclaimed Sega Saturn action-fighter, Advance Guardian Heroes continues the epic storyline of the mighty Magic Kingdom and features over 20 controllable characters, more than 160 powerful moves to master, and many incredible multiplayer scenarios.

“Advance Guardian Heroes is not your typical scrolling fighter videogame, as it features an action-packed story of courage and sacrifice,” said Ubisoft’s Director of Marketing, Helene Juguet. “Ubisoft is excited to be reviving this legendary franchise. Having maintained the same challenging fast-paced, beat ‘em up action and battles the cult-classic is known for, I know fans of Advance Guardian Heroes will be extremely pleased with the way we have revived the Treasure franchise.”

Advance Guardian Heroes features a simple user interface that allows instant pick-up-and-playability. Play as Enn, a warrior with the power of fire; Ray, a warrior with the power of thunder; and Hyu, a warrior with the power of ice who specializes in defense and magic. In Advance Guardian Heroes, rage against the dark conqueror Kanon and fight your way to victory. Play as one of three brand-new characters Enn, Ray or Hyu and defeat the evil Kanon as you fight to uncover the Soul Sword and save Earth.

Game features include:

  • Intense “beat ‘em up”: Multi-hit combos, special attacks and counter moves.
  • RPG elements: Upgrade your player’s characteristics and abilities as you wish throughout the game.
  • Magical mayhem and incredible special moves: Hone your skills to produce stunning abilities and feats.
  • Multiplayer madness: Play against or alongside friends through the game and in ‘versus’ mode in quick battle arenas.

Advance Guardian Heroes has a rating of “E” for Everyone and an MSRP of $29.99
