In possibly the biggest news to come out of Tokyo Game Show, shoot'em up superstars Treasure has revealed that it intends to create a sequel to SEGA Saturn masterpiece Guardian Heroes.
Treasure's Hiroto Matsuura said that the upcoming Xbox Live Arcade remake of the 1996 classic originally "started as Guardian Heroes 2
, but the publisher [SEGA] said in order to create a sequel, they wanted us to revitalise the IP. So instead we made a remake."
Matsuura-san added that the team behind last year's Sin & Punishment sequel on the Wii had a desire to make a sequel, but the remake itself is being handled entirely by himself. Any potential sequel would stay true to the original's roots, he hinted; "The original core game mechanics is a 2D, layer-based game, and that's what we like about it. We may create characters and backgrounds in 3D, but the core mechanics will be the same."
