Konami’s No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise Trailer Sounds Familiar…

By Ishaan . May 14, 2011 . 11:59am

Konami released a trailer for their upcoming release of No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise, and interestingly, it’s actually similar to one of the trailers for the Wii version of the game, except it has the new art and bits of modified dialogue.

 

 

Heroes’ Paradise has content from the No More Heroes: Red Zone Edition in Japan, such as the Character Viewer mode and the No More Heroes 2 cameo fights.

     Day 1. August is looking to be hot, if that remains the date and for just a mere $39.99, win! I want Travis’s shirt!

      It’s coming out in August? Sweet. Shadows of the Damned and NMH: Heroes Paradise back to back? This should be fun.  

    • Neckbear

       Man, it’s kinda tough, saving up for Totori, Disgaea 4, Dark Souls and all that jazz-

      “and for just a mere $39.99″

      Sold.

    • YsyDoesIt

      Agreed.  But the rest of this *year* is going to be blowing my mind (and my wallet).

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    Isn’t that the intro video? Regardless, I am totally getting this game. It’s been long enough since I’ve played the Wii version to warrant the purchase of an updated version

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      Ah, you’re right! That’s the intro to the game, too. :) 

  • pridesin

    So basically U.S version of Heroes’ Paradise is same as No More Heroes: Red Zone Edition ?

    • http://twitter.com/colonelxanders Alex Sargeant

      Yes. Slow-down fixes and all as I understand it. 

    • Aoshi00

      Seems like it, but still not sure if the US ver has dual track.. so far I pre-ordered the Red Zone edition for dual track and the Sylvia cover…  If the US ver has dual track and identical to the Jpn ver then I might get the US ver..

         There is no Japanese voice acting in No More Heroes.  It was always an English dub.

        • nyoron

          The original was English only, but No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise has both English and Japanese voice tracks.

        • Aoshi00

          I have the Jpn ver of No More Heroes Paradise on 360 and it was dual track, so I assumed Red Zone edition would be the same, but no word on the US ver. yet,

          However, NMH2 had not been dubbed in Jpn for the Jpn Wii ver yet.

             @aoshi00:disqus and@nyoron:disqus oh my mistake. Thanks for the correction.  But I just find it funny when people beg for dual tracks on games even when originally they were in English (and some dont even understand Japanese).  I like anime and a lot of Japanese games, the language is exotic and intriguing, but if provided with a language I can understand I would always go with English. 

          • Aoshi00

            I understand Jpn, the original Eng dub is fun (except a bit too much cursing for my taste), but I prefer the Jpn seiyuu cast like Nakai Kazuya for Travis and Inoue Marina for Sylvia…  If both ver are about the same price ~$40, then it’s better to get the one w/ dual audio right?  Also the Jpn Sylvia cover is sexy :)  I’m just curious if the US ver would have dual track.. In the 360 ver.. I played it in Eng first and then go back to watch the same cutscenes in Jpn :) and this game is pretty anime-esque too right..

            But yea, because I understand Jpn/Eng, I want my games or blu-ray movies to have those two languages…

     Pity, something new would be fun to check out. Well at least I’ll be able to play this one.

  • Natat

    Loved this game on the Wii, gonna love this game even more on the PS3.

  • PrinceHeir

     sooo hype in this game :D

    buying this along with Shadows of the Damned :)

    ohhh and this is the exact intro as the JPN version of No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise. replacing the “holding the wii-mote” to controller. also it seems that they didn’t censor the kill with Helter Skelter so that’s a bonus ^^

    now if they can announce No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise 2 my life would be COMPLETE.

  • HarryHodd

    Didn’t want to buy this game again but it looks like I’m gonna have to with all the extras.

  • LynxAmali

    And this is why I hate myself for not being a PS3 owner. Wasn’t this multi-plat in Japan though?
    I wonder what possesed Konami to make the english version PS3 exclusive.

    Now excuse me while I go cry in a corner because 360 owners got gimped again.

    • z_merquise

      C’mon dood, don’t be sad. There were also lot’s great games that were exclusive in XBox 360 that I wish were in the PS3 (heck and most of those games were featured here in Siliconera).

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

       They probably didn’t think it would sell well enough to cover to bring over both, so they went with the version they thought would get more sales.

      • http://twitter.com/mangeezer jerry

        It’s not like everyone who wants the game has both consoles
        It’s not like a 360 port of NMH can sell less than Otomedius 
        It’s not like it can sell less than the Japanese version (which sold pretty much the same as the PS3 version where the 360 is almost irrelevant)
        And it’s already been localized so it’s not like it would cost much 

        Bringing over the 360 version just seems like easy money but I guess they’re banking on it having lots of hot Move status selling power so maybe they only want the consumer to see it as the hot new Move game for PS3 instead of another multiplat title. I just don’t think anyone who would care about this game would care too much about Move.

        • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

          To begin, you’re putting words in my mouth. To conclude, why bother trying to convince me that they should put it on the 360? Am I the one that makes the decision? I’m just stating the most probable reason for keeping it to one console

        • http://twitter.com/samielo Sami Elo

          And here I’m thinking, “I have to get Move if I want to play this version properly.” 

      • malek86

        This makes it even more jarring, because with a game like this, there’s no way the 360 japanese version would sell more than an hypotethical 360 western version… makes you wonder why Marvelous even bothered with the 360 at all, if they weren’t trying to bring it stateside, like for Catherine.

        Maybe they tried, but Konami said no, we only want the PS3 version. It’s a possible scenario, I guess.

        • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

          Yeah, I would think it was Konami’s decision to only want to localize one version and they went with the PS3 version because it gives people the option of playing “normally” and playing with the Move.

          • malek86

            Well, but if they made the 360 version hoping for someone to pick it up, but nobody did, it’s kind of a problem for them. You’d think they would try and get some deals before spending money on development.

            That, or they are actually ok with the 20k or so copies sold in Japan. That’s a possibility too, I guess… maybe the porting costs were very low (considering all the bugs, they probably didn’t spend much on it).

          • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

            I would think they were okay with the amount sold. I think the 360 version actually sold around 15k, which, surprisingly, was better than the Wii release which was only around 12k, if I remember that Siliconera article correctly from a while back. I mean, if they thought the Wii sales were enough to warrant a sequel, then definitely these would be good since they’re higher.

       well from what i hear it a ps3 only i think xbox might get it but who now any rate this game going to rule!

    • lostinblue

       truth to be told though, this game should be played with Move (and kinect couldn’t possibly manage/work).

  • puchinri

     Only because Travis says bro and then addresses the player like a different person, I feel like he’s talkin to Henry and then me. Even though that isn’t the case.
    Sylvia still won’t be hot, even on a HD console, but Shinobu and Holly? Cannot. Wait.

  • cj_iwakura

    I can’t fathom playing this game without the English track. It defines it.

  • YsyDoesIt

    This game was so absolutely awesome when you weren’t doing the daily grind in Santa  Destroy, CA, just to murder some tools.  And as good as the game looks on Wii, this will blow my mind on my battlestation.

    NMH is a collection of impressive boss battles and memorable characters daisy-chained together with pure mediocrity.  I don’t know if I want to get this to support the creation of a NMH2 remake and a continuation of the series, or ignore it in protest of its flaws.

  • gatotsu911

    I dunno… it actually looks WORSE than the original version. HD doesn’t really do No More Heroes any favors.

  • http://amc9988.deviantart.com/ amc99

    Damn! Why I don’t have a PS3!!!

  • Allerina

    Would have been better if the developers made the second game for 360 or PS3, and added japanese voices as the did to NMH:EnR(360, PS3) in japan. English VAs suck. Well, no wonder, seiyuus are taught for years in a special university or smth like this, and english VAs are not.
