No More Heroes

No More Heroes tells the story of Travis Touchdown, an anime fan who lives in the fictional town of Santa Destroy, California.

After an unexpected turn of events, Travis finds himself being approached by the head hunter of an assassins' organisation. Travis is challenged to prove himself worthy by defeating ten other bloodthirsty killers - all with deep stories of their own - to make his way to the top of the assassins' league.

No More Heroes realises the dream of Wii players everywhere as they can wield the Wii Remote to swing the beam katana and perform spectacular wrestling moves. Suda 51's creation features avant-garde graphics which will thrust players into a stylised world filled with edgier gameplay. Taking its lead from the silver screen, the storyline is riddled with laugh-out-loud violence, black humour and irony-filled dialogue. No More Heroes is a multi-sense video game experience: dark, engaging and pure entertainment!

Very good

Unless you're one of those gamers who simply plays the same old rehashes year after year and doesn't truly appreciate the hobby, it's very likely that you've at least heard of No More Heroes. So does the game have what it takes to stand out here in the states, despite the...read full review

NO! NOT Sonic Heroes! Let's hope It's Something Completely Different! Hopefully Original.

Marvel is a lot cooler than DC.

Nah it's kind of a Killer 7 game on gamecube. It's got the same cel shaded graphics.

WiiFan15 said:

It has nothing to do with super heroes. Like Kareshi is black said, it has the same graphical style as Killer 7 but I'm pretty sure the gameplay is going to be different.

Maybe it's about that new series on NBC where all those people get superpowers. That might actually be fun. Although, the people only have one superpower each, according to the trailers. And I'm sure if it was marvel, it would be in the title somewhere. They put their name in everything.

wii-mote dude said:

Okay, I just found a preview video for this, it's some dueling hitman thing. (according to the video I saw).

Isn't heroes that wii title from Suda 51 (guy who made Killer 7)? If it is, shouldn't the developer and/or publisher be Capcom?

ganondorfrules said:

It's about X-Men characters plus some other superheroes. About Sonic Heroes, I did the first level and got bored of it so I turned it off and never played it again.

Umm... said:

Heroes is a game created by the Killer 7 creator. It has nice graphics just like Killer 7 except better. I'm going to buy this game for sure! It has nothing to do with DC, Marvel and Sonic stuff.

mytanc said:

Yea I've seen the preview many times. It looks awesome, but the voice acting seemed pretty worthless. It's a good thing it has nothing to do with "super heroes", that would have sucked. This game will be rated M for sure. By the way I just bought a 4 gig SD card. Time for all the fun of the Wii!

It's a gun game.

Maybe it will be based on the popular show heros. That would OWN. Japanese guy rox!

Or maybe it's about the sandwiches. Ok. That would be a boring game. I was just trying to think of something else with the name Hero.

Maoilios said:

Oh I hope this is bases on the NBC series! I would love to play the flying politician or the druggie who can paint the future or the guy who emits so much radiation he gave his wife cancer. That would be awesome! Not that I want to give people cancer but it would just be really unique.

It is a Killer 7 style game in which you play a character who has acquired a lightsaber-like weapon and decided to become a hitman.

No More Heros is a song.

wiifan15 said:

It's not based on the tv show and it's not a superhero game. It's a game about you trying to take out all these hitman to become the number 1 ranked hitman. Combat looks cool.

kareshi is black said:

Stop the dc and marvel stuff, this is a japanese game by the guy that made killer 7 from capcom. The game will have similar art.

Face it everybody. DC and Marvel will never have game together. The REAL game has some pretty good graphics.

The trailer was interesting. Seems like the game could be something, but I don't like the way the cell shading looks.

This is something like Viewtiful Joe and Red Steel. Not bad stuff at all. Very cool indeed!

I wonder if it will be a free rome, GTA style of game. The Wii needs one of them.

Looks interesting. Unknown is right. DC and marvel woud NEVER team up. It just would not happen. I'm not quite sure what what this game is about though. Anyone know?

This game looks interesting, but the graphics are horrible. Hopefully this game has enough time to get polished up before release.

Got really high hopes for this game, Killer7 was a work of art. The industry needs more people like Suda51.

I think you can pretty much count on it being rated M, the developer claimed he would try to make it more violent than Manhunt 2.

I think this is going to be one of my favorite games for the Wii. This is the Wii version of GTA.

Too many people ignore the masterpiece that was Killer7. That game has got to be one of my all-time favorites. If this game is half as good as Killer7, it will be one of the top Wii games out there.
