Heavenly Star shines in the European version of No More Heroes

By Spencer . February 6, 2008 . 4:06pm

Earlier this week, fellow Siliconera writer Levi informed me the Heavenly Star music video was cut from the Ubisoft’s “red” version of No More Heroes. Since I have the Japanese version I was completely unaware that it got cut. Definitely surprising news considering Ubisoft the song remains in the game and Ubisoft has a relationship […]

Take a tour of Travis Touchdown’s house

By Spencer . January 11, 2008 . 6:18pm

  When Travis isn’t hunting members of the United Assassin Association he kicks it at the No More Heroes motel. His grungy surroundings are semi-interactive. You can’t freely move around, but you can choose what Travis does through menus.   The toilet option sounds strange, but sitting on the porcelain throne is how you save […]

Travis Touchdown slashing his way into stores early

By Levi . January 4, 2008 . 9:38pm

A few weeks ago, the GameFly listing for No More Heroes mysteriously changed it's release date to January 22nd, 2008. A week or so later, the Amazon listing for the game changed to the 1/22 date as well. Now IGN has come along to confirm what many had suspected: Ubisoft has officially bumped up the […]

Being an otaku hero in No More Heroes

By Spencer . January 2, 2008 . 2:29am

Travis uses beam katana as his weapon to slaughter a ring of assassins. You use the A button on the Wii remote. The tutorial quickly explains there isn’t as much waggle as you may imagine for a game where you play a character brandishing a glorified stun baton. At the end of an A button […]

Marvelous! No More Heroes has a comic book manual

By Spencer . December 20, 2007 . 1:58pm

No More Heroes is all about otaku culture and someone at Grasshopper Manufacture thought of a clever idea to make the instruction book feel like a comic book. The manual doesn’t show the Wii remote controls with frames of hand drawn art, but compared to the sea of bland manuals this creative tie in stands […]

Sample the sweet sounds of No More Heroes

By Levi . December 2, 2007 . 4:54pm

While we American gamers have to wait until February, No More Heroes is just a few days away in Japan. Of course the game looks fantastic, but another aspect of the game that is equally fantastic is the music. Over at the Japanese official site for the game, you can check out four samples from […]

“Heavenly” cameo in No More Heroes

By Spencer . November 2, 2007 . 6:48am

I’m glad I’m not sick of hearing Heavenly Star yet because the song is everywhere. It’s in Lumines, it was in the Live Earth concert and a week ago it was playing in a Tokyo nightclub. Now it’s going to be in No More Heroes too in video form. Travis Touchdown can obtain a VHS […]

The mini, metallic Beam Katana

By Spencer . October 25, 2007 . 8:36am

Travis Touchdown, the hero in No More Heroes, wields a beam katana that he bought online. The last time I checked no outlet was selling a real one. However, if you pre-order No More Heroes in Japan you can get a keychain replica for free. Importers take note because Grasshopper Manufacture’s first Wii comes out […]

Hands on No More Heroes

By Spencer . September 24, 2007 . 6:34am

The Tokyo Game Show demo starts with Travis Touchdown with his pants down sitting in a port-a-potty. When you want to save the game in No More Heroes you don’t run to a glowing crystal, you run to the toilet. I think that gives a pretty clear sense of the level of depth in the […]

Suda 51 on violence in No More Heroes

By Spencer . September 20, 2007 . 3:36pm

I met up with Suda 51 to check out No More Heroes and I had a chance to ask him a few questions. The first thing on my mind was asking him if the AO rating on Manhunt 2 made him change the design of No More Heroes. He told me,   “I’m sorry I’m […]

Ubisoft gives the US No More Heroes

By Levi . September 20, 2007 . 7:10am

Well here's some news that makes me indescribably happy. No More Heroes, Suda 51's stylistic Wii game about an average otaku who inadvertently becomes an assassin, has been picked up by Ubisoft for a release in the US. IGN reports that Ubisoft will be bringing the game stateside in February of 2008, and that the […]

Watch – No More Heroes clips

By Spencer . August 31, 2007 . 6:37am

While we’re hot on the subject of Marvelous, the official site has three movies to watch. And it looks like they are going to release three new videos a week. Similar to Killer7, No More Heroes has English voice acting and Japanese subtitles so you can understand what Travis is saying without any problems.   […]

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 […]

Ultraviolence break, No More Heroes in ’08

By Spencer . June 24, 2007 . 10:22am

We are starting to hone in on when No More Heroes is going to come out. Japan gets it in winter 2007 and it looks like Europe is getting it in early '08 care of Rising Star Games.   The year ahead promises more exciting games in the ‘Harvest Moon’ series for Nintendo DS & […]

More No More Heroes media

By Spencer . June 22, 2007 . 2:56pm

After an uneventful official site launch, Grasshopper Manufacture released a few new screenshots of No More Heroes on Famitsu. No More Heroes is about Travis Touchdown who wins a beam katana over an internet auction and becomes a hit man. Players will use both motion control and the A button do a series of sword […]

No More Heroes will have more violence than Manhunt 2

By Rolando . February 18, 2007 . 9:09am

Some of you may remember when Manhunt 2 was announced to be on the Wii, and some of you have to admit how shocked you were to hear about it since a lot of gamers can’t get over the false belief that Nintendo is all about kiddy games. To add more shock to amazement, IGN […]
