Sega Forever is back this week with its latest title, Gunstar Heroes. We’re not sure exactly when it will launch, but you’ll definitely be able to play it on Christmas day. So that’s something.
What is it? Well, it’s a bit like Metal Slug. You play as a member of the Gunstars, a family of heroes who are out to stop the Empire – a dictatorship set on reviving an ancient weapon.

In true video game form, that involves activating four gems hidden across the planet. So you have to stop them by shooting them all into a bloody pulp.
There are four playable characters in total, and each of them has a different control scheme. Red can shoot freely, for example, while Blue remains fixed to a spot like in Resident Evil.
That’s pretty innovative even by today’s standards, which is probably why Gunstar Heroes is hailed as one of the best games ever. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about that release date.
