Treasure's Guardian Heroes is one of the SEGA Saturn's best games, and its recent Xbox Live Arcade re-release isn't bad either. The original development team has now banded together once more to create Code of Princess, a Japanese action roleplaying game for 3DS.

Set for release by Agatsuma Games in Japan early next year, the game supports up to four players and features illustrations by Kinu Nishimura, whose previous credits include Street Fighter III and Cyberbots. As you can see in the screenshots below, it's very similar to Guardian Heroes with co-operative play, real-time battles and arguably the biggest sword we've ever seen.
