Guardian Heroes is the kind of classic game that went under the radar, but was such a genre defining game that the shame is more people should have played the game. At the time when Sega and Treasure debuted the game on the Saturn it was monumental at the time. The Playstation had ushered in 3d gaming with its focus on polygons. The Sega Saturn was built from the ground up to pay homage, and push 2d gaming. It's one of the reasons that most 2d games on the platform were just on a different level compared to the PS One. In fact the Sega Saturn was the only place you could play an arcade perfect version of Street Fighter vs X-men. Treasure gave Saturn owners even more reason to love their system.Guardian Heroes is Treasure's Treasure to gaming.
