Gunstar Super Heroes Overview
Gunstar Super Heroes (ガンスタースーパーヒーローズ) is a sequel to the classic Sega Genesis run-and-gun Gunstar Heroes for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance.
The two-player mode that was a riot in the original game is not present in Super Heroes, unfortunately. Also changed is Gunstar Heroes‘ weapon combining system. Now characters come with 3 stock guns that you can change on the fly.
These changes aside, Super Heroes ends up feeling like a portable remix of the original. You’ll recognize many elements from the first game’s stages as you make your way through it.
The game is still quite enjoyable and fans of the original Gunstar Heroes should definitely check it out.

Gunstar Super Heroes Material Collection is a self published artbook by character designer Han. Good luck finding it!
Gunstar Heroes Sound Collection is a 59 track collection of music from Gunstar Heroes and Gunstar Super Heroes. It was published by Scitron Digital Contents (Catalog # SCDC-00470) in Japan on November 11th, 2005 for ¥ 2,625.
-The game was to feature loads of references to classic Sega Genesis games, but it was dialed back in the final release. Unused graphics and music are still in the game’s ROM with references to After Burner II, Altered Beast, ESWAT: City Under Siege, Flicky Galaxy Force II, Golden Axe, and Super Thunder Blade.
