Well, that was fast! Less than a week after teasing an English language western version, Half-Minute Hero 2: The Second Coming has been confirmed for a PC release this Friday, April 4 on Steam.

And let's face it, it wouldn't be a Half-Minute Hero game if it wasn't all about being fast. Billed as the sequel to the self-proclaimed 'world's fastest RPG,' Half-Minute Hero 2: The Second Coming includes more of the intense, mile-a-minute RPG action, along with four-player online multiplayer, Time Attack and Infinite Battle modes, and a map editor that allows custom creations to be shared on Steam Workshop.

In the spirit of its April Fools Day release, the trailer below shows a $999.99 price tag. That won't quite be the case, but publisher Marvelous AQL did confirm to Siliconera that owners of the first Half-Minute Hero on Steam will get the sequel for 25% off.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
