No More Heroes Saving on PS3's Toilet

No More Heroes Saving on PS3's Toilet

An HD upgrade of No More Heroes is coming to the PlayStation 3 with Move support.

To those that say PlayStation Move is just a replica of the Wii, I point you towards No More Heroes: Paradise. You're totally right, in this case. Konami has announced that No More Heroes: Paradise is now coming to North America as an exclusive on the PlayStation 3 with support for PlayStation Move.

Anyone that wants to experience one of the Wii's bloodiest and most perverted games, but didn't want to purchase the Nintendo console, will now be able to do so in gorgeous HD. No More Heroes follows Travis Touchdown, an otaku that purchases a beam katana through the internet. This logically leads to him deciding to kill people for money. As Travis attempts to become the #1 ranked assassin in the world by knocking off the top 10 in gruesome fashion, he does a few odd jobs here and there like gathering coconuts. When he needs to save, he sits upon a porcelain throne.

No More Heroes doesn't make much sense, but it is a pretty funny game. The screenshots of No More Heroes: Paradise on PS3 look gorgeous, and rightfully so, as the game already looked good on the Wii. Paradise adds new bosses and the ability to re-challenge those already defeated. Bosses in No More Heroes are similar to those from Shadow of the Colossus in that they're really the best part of the game.

I'm just wondering how Paradise will handle Travis's totally bare hometown as seen on the Wii. Riding around the city streets in Touchdown's futuristic motorbike was fun, but they were completely empty and a bit ugly, to be honest. No More Heroes: Paradise is due in 2011, so if Konami added anything other than bosses and improved graphics we'll find out then.

I really hope this comes out in Australia.

Really? Not liking it(the port). But whatever.

Honestly if i didn't see a review of this game, the title of this article would make no sense...Also...YAY.

Does it work without Move?

I mean, the reason I didn't buy the Wii is the stupid motion control gimmick, so if the PS3 forces you to use Move to play this then I won't be playing it on the playstation either.

Just let me use a damn joystick controller!

they said Dualshock 3 and Move. So it works with both. :)

Whats the matter with it..?

No More Heroes was one of the rare games I liked playing with a motion controller on the Wii, it wasn't perfect in terms of movement, but it was fun.

Yay for PS3 gamers either way, this was a great game.

Think of it like this...When a game like Call of Duty is made for the Wii..people will laugh at it.
But...
If games like No More Heroes,NBA Jam and Tatsunoko vs Capcom are only for the Wii...most people would be like "WTF!? WHY THE WII!?!?!" I want Marvel vs Capcom 3 for the Wii...but it's not gonna happen. Heck..NBA Jam is heading to the Xbox and PS3.

Imagine charging the sword on Kinect lol.

I thought it was announced a while ago it would come out on both systems? Oh well, No More Heroes was an... alright game. The bosses were fun an interesting, and I'm sure the PS3 version will have better motion controls then the Wii version did. But I'm not about to go pick up a game I bought a few years ago.

Also, I'd like to see a re-remake of the Okami game. The wii version's controls were horrible in my opinion, and just being able to play Okami again would make it worth it to me. I don't have a PS2 and no backwards compatibility. :/

Finally! I was waiting to hear about a western release date.
Any news on whether this will be Move exclusive or whether I can still play with a regular controller?

CVG did say that paradise gets some extra stuff..."sub-missions, the ability to upgrade weapons and visit a gym to train, and a new Rebout Mode which lets you take on former bosses "
This game was one of the only reasons i even considered getting a wii. I can put that off for a bit now.

I think people are overlooking how awesome this port might be.

Think about it... Move does seem to pull off near-perfect swordplay with Move.

And if you can use Move to control Travis's sword swings, it might the the very first realistic sword-fighting game.

Either way, Move or not, I am excited for this port just like with Mass Effect 2.

I hope they don't move no more heroes from wii to ps3 or else I will be very disappointed at suda51 other than that I'm happy Heroes Paradise is making it to america hopefully sales will be good and we'll have a 3rd game

The later point regarding the empty city will be an interesting reveal. I can't imagine an HD port/improvement game that is otherwise resoundingly empty in its universe compared to the more expansive and populated open world-type games on the PS3 and 360.

Regardless, from videos that I've seen, I'm not sure that I could handle the smarmy protagonist without wanting to take control of one of the bosses...

No More Heroes is one of the few games where motion controls actually work.

And they work well. It adds to the charm of the game. Especially when you have to "recharge" your sword.

Sweet. One more reason to buy a Move soon.

On a side note, Konami, please populate the city with cars you can plow through, and, if you are able, put in No More Heroes 2 as well. A Blu-Ray is big enough for both.

That said, I shall reserve this ASAP.

That just got my atention. I've really been paying attention to NMH from a distance. We'll see...

This seriously pisses me off. I just bought NMH a month ago when someone told me Paradise would be JPN exclusive (lying, rotten so-and-so's). If I'd known I could play it with a controller and on my console of choice, I would have waited.

I hope for Konami's sake they'll have the developers behind the port (since I highly doubt Suda51's working on this) add enough content to justify a $60 price tag should they charge for that. Otherwise, they'll be ripping off HD system owners because you can get both NMH1 and NMH2 on Wii for as low as $40 new, and that money will actually go to the original creators instead of just the port team.

You have made me lol.

Ditto

This is the type of news I like hearing to make me excited about the Move. Mature rated motion games could thrive on the move!!

There's one of the Wii's bearable titles rendered useless.

Why don't you port Muramasa and re-port Okami so I can just throw the damn thing away?

I really don't care, I'm not going to spend money on a motion controller that I don't want.

Practically all of the motion controls used in No More Heroes could be duplicated on the Sixaxis. The game uses them sparingly (which is why they work so well).

As long as I can play it with a normal controller, I'm interested. This was a series I missed on the wii, they seemed to disappear quickly from stores where I live.

This is why people get easily frustrated by "hype." If you expect anything more out of this port than improved graphics (and the already mentioned boss fights, etc.), you are LYING to yourself. Core gameplay will not change at all.

One word sums up my entire opinion on the NMH series, games and the fact that it is coming to PS3.

Awesome!

eh im not going to buy it again, i just hope three still comes out on wii or
I wont be getting it (i do own a ps3)

Tried it out, couldn't stand that it was on the Wii, never bought it. I'll be trying this out. It would be nice if they would change around the driving mechanic. It felt really constrained.

I'd like to know about how their plans on porting the second game. If this is a bundle pack, that would be pretty damn sexy.

So...then what's the matter with it coming to the PS3? I still don't really understand what you mean.

But I can't wait to play this, I don't have a wii and I missed out on the Mario 25th anniversary wii, even though I was waiting for that...
