The original Sega Saturn role-playing game beat-em-up hybrid Guardian Heroes will be receiving the HD upgrade with high player count online multiplayer for Xbox Live Arcade this coming October.
By prolific Japanese developer Treasure, Guardian Heroes was critically acclaimed for having multiple paths, bosses, and endings as well as its soundtrack. Another notable aspect was its multi-plane playing field that can accommodate up to two players in the main game and six in the versus mode. The latter will now allow up to 12 players online enabled on Xbox Live. Players not only can represent the main protagonists, they can also unlock enemies and bosses.
Aimed for an Oct. 12 release, the remastered Guardian Heroes will be available for 800 Microsoft Points. For now here is a trailer showing a bit of footage of the game
