News – Half-Minute Hero Sequel Announced

The quirky PSP game Half-Minute Hero is getting a sequel and it sounds as if it’s got plenty to offer over the original.

It’s still all about adventuring split into 30 second stages, but this time around the timer will now pause whenever you’re on the overworld map.

There’s also a four player co-op mode and a quest creation tool, which as the name suggests allows you to create your own mini quests, which should be fun, providing the tool is flexible enough. Finally there’s the infinite mode, where you face off against bosses one after the other, with the objective being to vanquish them all.

It’s not out in Japan until November, so unsurprisingly there’s no word on a Western release as yet.
