SEGA has announced the a re-release of Guardian Heroes, the action-RPG fighter from Treasure, and it’s coming to Xbox Live.

The game’s original release was on SEGA Saturn way back in 1996, and the re-release of it for XBL has been remastered with “enhanced graphics, online co-op and battle modes, all-new modes of play, and more.”

“Ever since we began to make SEGA’s classic Dreamcast and the Mega Drive titles available for modern systems, the fan response has been overwhelming – and the demand for their favorite games has been pouring in,” said Haruki Satomi, VP of digital business at SEGA. “Players have been clamoring for this treasured favorite from the Saturn days, and we cannot wait to show them what we have got for them.”

Here’s the details:

  • Action-RPG Brawling: Choose one of five heroes to level up and guide along a branching storyline with five different endings.
  • Friends, Foes, and Fighters: Play the game’s Story Mode alone or with a second player, or challenge Versus Mode with up to 12 players at once.
  • Extended Gameplay: Time Attack Mode, Arcade Mode, Arrange Mode and more allow players to explore every nuance of 45 different fighters.
  • Fully Re-Mastered: All-new graphics and visual effects bring the classic to life in a completely high-definition, widescreen presentation.

Guardian Heroes will be made available this fall.
