The special No More Heroes site has a little more information about Travis Touchdown and few screenshots to see.

 

Travis’ primary weapon is the Beam Katana, which he won from an online auction, but he can also fight using wrestling moves.

 

The Beam Katana can block bullets.

 

You need to keep the Beam Katana charged by picking up batteries and if you cannot find any you can power the katana by shaking the remote.

 

If Travis gets stuck in a swordfight you can rotate the remote to push an enemy’s sword down.

    That looks badass

    For some reason, the look of the game reminds me of Killer 7.

    Except with swords.

    Although since No More Heroes is being directed by the brilliant mind behind Killer 7, Suda 51, it’s not surprising that he opted for a similar stylish cel-shaded look a la his previous work to display the game’s world.

    I think No More Heroes has a slightly more realistic visual style in its approach, in comparison to Killer7. Apparently the game is running on a different engine from its predecessor, but honestly it’s hard to tell the difference at this moment in time.

    Bah, graphic smaphic, I think we can all agree that we didn’t care about that when we bought a Wii. As long as the game is not another Red Steel, it should be good. Personally, I want to try that Dragon Quest Sword game.

    I was simply making an general assumption based on the current build of No More Heroes, that had nothing to do with whether it looks better than Killer7. Personally, I find it hard-pressed to find a cel-shading game that doesn’t look gorgeous, and as far as pushing the envelop for impressive visuals using this style goes No More Heroes can’t be beat.

    The Wii isn’t built around graphics, that’s for sure, but that doesn’t give developer’s the excuse to publish rubbish like Spider-Man 3 on the console with the mentality of overlooking a game’s visuals altogether. Any title, no matter on what system, needs to have a certain polish to it, a la the aforementioned No More Heroes, and generally make use of the hardware which it’s running on.
