Some new info on No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle has arisen from the TGS press event and various interviews with the game's creator, Suda51.
First off, the development team from the original No More Heroes are in place to work on the sequel too. Publishers in the US will not remain the same however, with Ubisoft being ditched in favor of a co-publishing deal between Marvelous and Xseed Games. Rising Star will again handle publishing in Europe.
NMH:DS will be exclusive to the Nintendo Wii. Suda51 considered the Xbox 360 as a potential platform but felt the motion controls of the Wii were a better fit:
"We don't have plans for an Xbox 360 No More Heroes. There is nothing of that sort scheduled in our development cycle. There is still room for the Wii's graphics to get better and better".
The developers Grasshopper don't often work on sequels, but the team were keen to do another game featuring Travis Touchdown, the lead character. Details on the storyline are scarce, but Travis is motivated by revenge this time out, and will be taking his fighting more seriously.
