Half-Minute Hero is an interesting mix of an RPG, a shoot ’em up, an action game and a real-time strategy game all rolled into a single release. Oh, and you only have 30 seconds to play each one!
Okay, I hear you: “Why would I play a game that is only 30 seconds long?” The thing is, there is a LOT to do in each of the game’s modes, thus keeping things fresh. This game is, hands down, the best game I played on my PSP (and it is also fully compatible with the Vita)!
A recent teaser trailer was released a couple days ago which you can see here and there is a small conference going to be held on this game soon in Japan, but until then, we have some new details to share.
