No More Heroes may be a year old for us, but Korea doesn’t know who Travis Touchdown is yet. CyberFront, the company brave enough to publish niche games like Armored Core: For Answer and Cross Edge in Korea, picked up the rights to No More Heroes.
Like CyberFront’s other releases No More Heroes will be localized with Korean text. Yeah, that should be standard, but Korean games like Dissidia: Final Fantasy are actually in Japanese.
Two versions of No More Heroes exist, a black version where enemies explode into black dots and an uncensored version where enemies explode into red pools of blood. Europe and Japan got the “black” version while Ubisoft released the ultraviolent “red” version in North America. Korea will also get the red version as indicated by screenshots released by CyberFront.
CyberFront is also pushing its release with a pre-order bonus. Reserve No More Heroes in Korea and you get a No More Heroes t-shirt. No More Heroes will finally come out in Korea on July 9.
