Mech Strategy Vanguard Bandits Hits PSN Tomorrow

Tomorrow the PSONE strategy game Vanguard Bandits will be resurrected. MonkeyPaw Games has remade the cult classic for a PSN release and it can be yours for $9.99.

In Vanguard, players control squadrons of All Terrain Armored Combatants - essentially big mechs. There are 60 missions to tackle in the game's campaign. The branching storyline culminates in five different endings.

"Vanguard Bandits isn’t just one of the rarest PSone games ever (a sealed copy can set you back more than $200), it’s also a game that feeds to the strengths of the genre, namely a deadly combination of gameplay challenge, thought provoking strategy, and extremely high replay value," said MonkeyPaw marketing manager Ray Almeda on the PlayStation.Blog.

MonkeyPaw plans to release the original 200+ page strategy guide for the game as PDF as well. You'll be able to download it through the company's website.
