KONAMI ANNOUNCES NO MORE HEROES: HEROES’ PARADISE FOR PLAYSTATION MOVE

Players Help Travis Touchdown Hack and Slash Through the Ranks of the United Assassins Association With new Playstation Move Controls

El Segundo, Calif. – Oct 26, 2010 – KONAMI Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced today that No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise is coming to PlayStation 3 and will be compatible with Sony’s new PlayStation Move controls. Developed by AQ Interactive Inc., No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise will be available exclusively for PlayStation 3 in North America as Travis Touchdown returns to become the world’s number one assassin.

In No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise, players journey through the sunny city of Santa Destroy as Travis Touchdown, battling to eliminate some of the world’s deadliest assassins. Equipped with a razor sharp Beam Katana sword, players start off as the 11th ranked assassin and try to move up the ranks to position themselves as the ultimate killer. During the course of the game, players encounter Sylvia, a mysterious woman from the United Assassins Association, who arranges fights with other higher ranked assassins to help Travis become the number one in the world. Players will either ride through the town on Travis’ trusty motor bike or travel on foot to arrive at Travis’ next assignment.

Using either a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller or the PlayStation Move motion controller players have access to a wide range of physical assaults and katana attacks, with each bout tracked by a dynamic camera that showcases the game’s stunning visuals and cinematic fight sequences. By varying the grip and control of the Beam Katana and the timing of their attacks, players have a wide range of moves at their disposal to help Travis battle and defeat his enemies. Defeated foes can also be dispatched with stunning finishing moves, allowing Travis to cement his rising reputation with a series of breathtaking kills.

Travis’ progression is enhanced via a series of sub-missions as well as the ability to hone his skills and upgrade his weapon within the lab. Santa Destroy is a living, breathing place, and the anti-hero can enter shops, visit a gym to train, and collect special icons that will enhance his attack options. As players progress through the game, they will have the opportunity to complete deadly missions and side jobs as they make their way up the ladder of the United Assassins Association.

Aside from the side missions, players will also be able to enjoy newly added game modes like “Rebout Mode” where former foes can be challenged again. Also, players will have the opportunity to encounter additional boss characters that were not available in the original episode but will be on the PlayStation®3 version of the game. Additionally, “Viewer Mode” is also available allowing players to re-watch infamous cut scenes in crystal clear HD graphics. With its stunning visuals, additional levels of action, improved AI and an incredible level of control, No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise represents a welcome return for one of gaming’s most daring creators.

No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise is slated to release in 2011 exclusively for the PlayStation 3. For assets and information on the game, please visit: www.konami.com.

Censored like the Japanese release or Uncensored?

Thank you, Konami, for picking up Ubisoft’s slack.

Hopefully you’ll do more than just localize it (read: English subs/dubs) and work out the glitches and bad DualShock controls.

To people that are complaining that this game will be censored, it won’t be. Please recalled the Wii version was not censored (In Japan, it is censored). I recalled the European and the North American version of this game will not be censored. The Japanese PS3 version of this game is censored (the 360 version in Japan is uncensored). So quit complaining it’ll be censor in US, it’s not. However, don’t import the Japanese version since it censored and doesn’t have move support for that version.

+ letherclad on October 26th, 2010 at 4:08 pm said:

This is awesome, I love when I see the word “exclusive” here on the PS blog and on top of that its more move support. I’ll be picking this up!

Almost great news. Now all we need is the answer to one simple question: will it be uncensored, or will it suck?


64

+ Jeigh_Mate on October 26th, 2010 at 4:51 pm said:

Definitely a good addition.

+ hush404 on October 26th, 2010 at 5:04 pm said:

Also: Madworld?

“In 2011, North American PS3 owners will get their first taste of the No More Heroes universe”

as a wii and ps3 owner, this right here is what is known as a LIE.

This is the only Wii game I wanted to play and when I first heard of the EU release, I thought about importing it from there. I’ll get the NA version now.
Now questions:

1. What new features are you adding?

2. In what ways will Move’s control scheme enhance the experience for those who already played the Wii version? Could you tell us an example where said enhancement can be noticed?

Thanks!

+ xBarritx on October 26th, 2010 at 7:21 pm said:

I hope this will be a better port than the Japanese port.. those loading times were horrible from what I saw in the videos. Are we getting the “Very Sweet Mode” also? lol

Awesome! This is the main reason why I’m planning on picking up Move.

+ Player665 on October 26th, 2010 at 11:22 pm said:

Jeff Rubenstein, Is it possible for you to ask Konami if this version will have the “Very Sweet” mode? I don’t see it in this article, and I’m fairly certain that the Japanese version had it.

Thanks.

+ Darkpen on October 27th, 2010 at 2:50 am said:

Huh, Konami’s publishing.

Hey, could you tell the guys who’re making the Move compatible to make the Move image look a bit more pixelated? It really sticks out in that word bubble :/

Or does the Wiimote look photorealistic too in the Wii version?

+ CrusherX on October 27th, 2010 at 2:52 am said:

WANTWANTWANTWANTWANT.

PS Move: Now with Killzone 2, Heavy Rain, No More Heroes, and more. If you’re a core gamer and you don’t like the Wii games, get this. Get it NOW. Kevin Butler compells you.

LOL ive had this game for PS3 since the beginning of this year. I played the Wii version too, thats what made me get it for PS3 and its just as awesome especially with the added contents. Kinda late an announcement unless they really upped the graphics for this upcoming NA version.


93

+ FLIPTAKU on October 27th, 2010 at 5:44 pm said:

Awesome news, since they announced a Europe release a US one wouldn’t be far off. I imported the Japanese version for PS3 and liked it alot.

And I will probably pick up this version and the Wii ones too.
