Welcome to the official No More Heroes hype thread!Official Website!What's No More Heroes?
No More Heroes is the latest game to come from Grasshopper Manufacture, a game development house that's most well known for their work on Killer7, but have also worked on other games including Michigan, Contact, and game adaptions of Samurai Champloo and Blood+. It's being developed exclusively for the Wii.Okay, but what is No More Heroes?
No More Heroes is an action game that follows the adventures and exploits of one Travis Touchdown, wrestling fan, otaku, and newbie assassin who's just entered the arena. The opening can explain his situation better then I can.
As it suggests, the main point of the game is to go around Santa Destroy, killing off rival assassins until you're No. 1. But while you do that, you also complete smaller gigs to build your funds, like collecting trash, mowing lawns, maybe killing a few nobodies here and there...hey, no one ever said that it was a luxurious
lifestyle, right? Oh, and you can raise a kitten. And ride around town in a sweet motorcycle.
The gameplay is simple enough to understand: instead of swinging the controller, you press the A button to attack, but depending on how you hold (low, medium, high) you could use different moves, and you'll have to, if you want to get around some of the baddies defenses. Of course, being the wrestling fan he is, you'll also have the option of performing some classic moves on baddies to finish them off, plus the occasional finish move with your beam katana.
Now, onto the cast!
