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 with Q Entertainment. Remember how they published Lumines in North America?
I sent over an e-mail to Rising Star Games who is publishing No More Heroes in Europe and asked if the Heavenly Star music video would appear in their release. I got a short response back saying, “Yes, we have included it.” This makes the European version essentially the same as the Japanese version except the subtitles and mission objectives are not written in kana.
