Guadia Quest Saga trailer from Game Center CX 2.
This title — one of 15 different “retro-styled” games in GCCX2 — is not only a sequel to the Dragon Quest-inspired Guadia Quest RPG featured in the original GCCX, it’s also the first appearance of a Game Computer Mini Color release!
Obviously, the Mini Color pays homage to the Game Boy Color. And like several GBC releases (Pokemon and Dragon Quest Monsters 2, for example) Guadia Quest Saga has two different editions, Light and Dark.
JC tells me that the version included in GCCX2 is Guadia Quest Saga: Light. Hopefully, there will be some kid running around with a Dark copy, so you can trade content with him or her.
One other noteworthy detail: I believe this is the first game in the GCCX series that “shipped” in the 1990s. The timeline doesn’t exactly fit with ours, though, as Guadia Quest Saga is a 1991 title, and the Game Boy Color didn’t debut in Japan or the U.S. until 1998.

Thanks to the ever-vigilant Ray Barnholt, we can benefit from the reveal of two more Game Center CX 2 games in the latest episode of the Game Center CX TV series. GunDuel is the sequel to the shmup Star Prince, and (sensibly) includes a two-player simultaneous mode via wireless. Guadia Quest Saga is the sequel to GCCX1's RPG, with a classy new logo and a 1991(!) copyright date!
