Europe May See Hero 30 Second This Fall
But via which publisher?

While all territories get a Half-Minute Hero fix next week by way of an HD version of the first game on Xbox Live, it seems like Europe will get even more of a fix this fall. The oft-delayed-in-Japan Hero 30 Second has apparently gotten a listing on both Amazon.co.uk and Play.com under the title Half-Minute Hero 2, with an October 21st release date. Play took their listing down, but Amazon still has theirs up, naming the publisher as Rising Star Games.
Which would make sense since they brought the first title to the EU. Just one problem: Rising Star says they're not actually the sequel's publisher. Eurogamer lists this as being Namco Bandai... but they haven't announced the title yet either.
Hero 30 Second for the PSP is finally due for Japanese shelves on August 4th. So far, there's been no localization announcement for North America either. Half-Minute Hero Super Mega Neo Climax, which has optional weird Neo Cartoon graphics, hits Xbox Live on June 29th.
