New Gunstar Heros For GBA 25

Neitokun writes " is reporting that there is going to be a Sequel to Gunstar Heros for the Gameboy Advance. Called Gunstar Super Heros, game appears close to the action-y style of the original. The production company, Treasure, appears to be concerned more about quality than just making a sale-worthy game. From the article: 'We're not going to make a sequel just because it would sell. That would be a disaster.'"

    Didn't they also do last year's critically acclaimed GBA Astro Boy: Omega Factor? I really liked it. The second time through (to get the real ending) is significantly harder... I think; at least one of the bosses is. I haven't played it in a little while.

    I'm looking forward to Gunstar Heroes, though. I played the Genesis game once, and it had the bizarre and hectic feel that Bangai-O can have, only constant and faster. This seems great for the GBA.

    Gunstar Heroes is like Contra or Metal Slug on serious crack. It offers some great special moves that differ between the two characters that it's still probably the best game in the genre (and I've played the PS import games that are eerily similar...they merely come close, but they can't beat this game).

    Anyone who's ever liked a game in this genre should be leaping for joy about this GBA sequel.
