No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

No More Heroes 1.5

It took over a decade, but No More Heroes 1.5 has finally received an English dub.

No More Heroes 1.5, a motion comic, was included with the Hopper’s Edition of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle in Japan. It was intended to bridge the gap between the series’ first two entries. Suda51 wrote the story, and apparently kept it secret from most Grasshopper Manufacture staffers while it was being created.

no more heroes 1 and 2 switch physical

No More Heroes 1 and 2 previous received physical versions on Switch in the west through Limited Run Games. Now, however, Arc System Works and Marvelous are planning a new release in Asia that will bring the two together.

The new physical version of No More Heroes 1 and 2 for Switch apparently contains both games on a single cartridge. This is in contrast to what we saw with Limited Run Games, as they were individual releases previously.

When No More Heroes 1 and 2 arrived on Switch a few months ago, they were only offered as digital titles. Limited Run Games is now planning physical releases, the company just announced.

Fans can pick up different versions of the games. There will be standard releases as well as collector’s editions, the latter of which feature special goodies.

As part of its latest financial results, Marvelous provided a status update on the sales of No More Heroes 1 and 2 on Switch. Both games experienced strong sales in North America and Europe, according to the company. Specific data was not provided.

No More Heroes 1 and 2 made it to Switch last October as digital downloads on the eShop. The games first launched for Wii a decade ago. The next entry in the series, No More Heroes 3, will finally launch in 2021 following a delay.

Engine Software was responsible for the Switch versions of No More Heroes 1 and 2. You can learn more about their arrival on Nintendo’s current console as part of our interview with the studio here.

We interviewed Engine Software about a year ago and spoke with the studio about its past experiences with Switch. You can catch up on it here.

No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle were just revealed for Switch today and have promptly released. XSEED has now passed along an official announcement as well as launch trailers for both games.

Here’s the full rundown:

At the start of 2019, Travis Touchdown will finally be making a return with Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. But fans have also shown quite a bit of interest in having past entries in the series appear on Switch as well.

While director Suda51 has acknowledged interest in doing this previously, it appears he’s actually now taking a proactive approach. Speaking with Nintendeal at PAX West 2018, he mentioned that he’s in talks with Marvelous in hopes of bringing No More Heroes 1 and 2 to Switch.
