By Spencer . June 25, 2009 . 2:23pm

No More Heroes may be a year old for us, but Korea doesn’t know who Travis Touchdown is yet. CyberFront picked up the rights to No More Heroes. Which version did they get?

By Ishaan . May 28, 2009 . 11:39am

Here’s a pic from Ubisoft’s E3 site. It seems to be a list of games they will show off at E3… I can spot what is Splinter Cell, Assassin’s Creed 2 and what is obviously No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle.

Where To Go Next: No More Heroes

By Ishaan . February 8, 2009 . 12:12pm

Let’s look back to the past for a minute. Back to 2006, when the Wii was still considered a “fad” and the best core third-party game we had on the system was Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition. Back when EA wasn’t prepping a Boom Blox sequel and a Wii version of Dead Space. Back when […]

No More No More Heroes Until 2010

By Spencer . October 17, 2008 . 12:06pm

Marvelous’ announcement at Tokyo Game Show was a teaser clip for No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle. While the sequel’s name makes it sound like a Nintendo DS game, you know with the DS acronym, Grasshopper Manufacture is developing it for the Wii. Enjoy this teaser trailer because No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle’s tentative release window […]

More No More Heroes for mobiles

By Spencer . July 8, 2008 . 12:41pm

The ever growing Marvelous Entertainment group has a new line up of mobile phone games in Japan. Along with a Zero no Tsukaima horizontal shooter and a mobile Fish Eyes Wild there is a series of cheap, 100 yen No More Heroes flash games. In one game you drive the Schpeltiger and in the pictured […]

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 […]
