Goichi Suda, better known as Suda51, has become notorious for his unique, engaging, and action-packed hits such as Killer7 and No More Heroes, the latter of which was a Wii-exclusive and will see a sequel in early 2010. Suda51 has expressed his thoughts on moving beyond the Wii, however, and the first steps have apparently been taken in making that happen.
Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu recently reported that No More Heroes would be branching out to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms in February of next year. The port will be titled No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise, and it is currently slated for release in Japan, with no word on if and when the game will come to the United States.
The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 ports are set to have updated high-definition graphics, an Advanced Mode, Japanese language tracks, and a Very Sweet Mode. This newest addition will feature the game’s female characters showing more skin. (Nothing like digital hotties, eh?)
The game is set for a February 25 release. No word on whether the game will cross over to other parts of the world has been released, but given Suda51’s intention to have this franchise branch out to gamers everywhere, it almost seems like a given that Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners residing in parts other than Japan will be getting the opportunity to control the pathetic yet hilarious otaku Travis Touchdown.
Below are scans from Famitsu indicating the game’s jump to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Will No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle eventually be ported as well? Should the first No More Heroes have been ported sooner? Which female character do you want to see in Very Sweet Mode the most? What will happen to the status of No More Heroes on the Wii now that it’s jumping platforms?
