After a polite warning that they were on their way over, PC Ports of No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle are on their way this coming week. The games were previously exclusive to the Wii and Nintendo Switch, but are now on PC and I guess the Amazon Luna. Though you have to use a controller.
The two cult classic hack-and-slash beat ’em ups will release on June 9th. They’re made by Goichi “Suda51” Suda’s company, Grasshopper Manufacture.
No More Heroes is a particularly silly series starring Travis Touchdown, a man with a laser sword who wants to be the #1 Assassin in the world association of Assassins, for obvious reasons. He’s also pretty good at pro-wrestling moves, which he uses to smash enemies for sweet combos and such. It’s an over-the-top, excessive blood and violence and swearing and sex type of series and people like it a lot, probably, for just that.
Frankly, however, I cannot imagine how they will replicate the experience of having to shake the Wii Remote like you’re masturbating in order to recharge your laser sword.
