Treasure hints at Guardian Heroes sequel

In an interview with Japanese website GAME Watch, Treasure CEO Masato Maegawa, developer Hiroto Matsuura and Sega producer Yosuke Okunari  have revealed that the inspiration for the XBLA remake of Guardian Heroes was actually formed from the desire to develop a sequel to the game. Given that Guardian Heroes was originally released on the Sega Saturn back in 1996, during the planning stages it was felt a sequel might not do so well as newer gamers would not be familiar with the original material. “If we develop a sequel, I want more people to know the original Guardian Heroes” explains Maegawa. In the end it was decided that a port of the original was the way forward.

New character brings the pain to Skullgirls

A new addition to the Skullgirls fighting team has been revealed by Shoryuken.com. Dark new character Painwheel is an “aerial dominance” character, and can fly using the blades in her back. She is said to be in constant pain and full of rage with the ability to charge up her normal attacks. Read her full bio below:

Once a normal schoolgirl named Carol, Painwheel was kidnapped by Valentine and delivered to the Anti-Skullgirls Labs’ secretive Lab Zero. There she was implanted with the synthetic Buer Drive and Gae Bolga parasites and infused with experimental Skullgirl blood, transforming her into the monster she is today. Violent and unstable as a result of these experiments, as a precaution she’s mentally controlled by Lab Zero’s powerful psychic director, Brain Drain. Fueled by rage, she draws her power from her pain and fury. Despite that, the soul of that scared young girl still lives on inside this monstrous body, desperately fighting off the onslaught of voices that would control her.

Skullgirls is set to launch on XBLA early 2012. Head over the page for more images of Painwheel.
