“I am satisfied with the sales of the Wii version to a point, but I don’t think that it really proves the limits of Wii. Monster Hunter Tri is selling well on the Wii after all, but we just are not able to create that kind of content at the moment. To be clear, I’m not admitting defeat. I am constantly striving to ever make better games.” – Marvelous Entertainment head, Yasuhiro Wada

Unfortunately, I don’t recall No More Heroes making a big splash in Japan. On the other hand, however, the game did quite well in North America. I expect that the situation will be the same for the sequel.
