Rent a Hero has never had any luck overseas, never seeing a release in its Megadrive form, or in its remade form on the Dreamcast. This port to the Xbox was nearly completely, with GamePro magazine in the US having reviewed it at one point. But, alas, it wasn’t to be, and Rent a Hero No. 1 remains unreleased, officially anyway. A few years ago, the game leaked in a nearly-complete form, for the Xbox, with just a few bugs left to be terminated. The videos online of the English version are pretty lacking, so I went ahead and captured some new 480p footage, to hopefully do the game justice.
Below you will find almost an hour of the game, in the form of a playlist. Unfortunately, with the copyright strikes, I am limited to 15 minute videos again. It is actually my first time playing, so there is a bit of filler where I am trying to figure out where to go, so feel free to skip around a bit. Check the game out, and let me know what you think!
Remember, the playlist is 5 videos long!
