No More Heroes

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 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.

The No More Heroes franchise was dormant for about a decade following the release of the second entry on Wii. But we then saw Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes in 2019, Switch ports of the previous titles last year, and we’re about to get No More Heroes 3. You can definitely say that the series’ future is looking bright.

No More Heroes has stayed within the gaming space, but creator Suda51 is interested in expanding the IP into areas. Speaking with IGN, he talked about how he hopes there’ll be a movie or TV show based on the series someday. Also revealed is that one past proposal “came really close” to happening, with a decision even having been made egarding “the actor to play the main character, but it never made it into production.”

Suda51’s full words:

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.

The original No More Heroes has been updated on Switch. Version 1.1.1 seems to have one purpose: to restore the missing K-Entertainment music track.

The No More Heroes Switch port also removed the Heavenly Star tune, which came down to licensing. Regarding the K-Entertainment track, it seems that this was a somewhat innocuous removal. Marvelous and Engine Software have now restored it – Heavenly Star is unlikely to return though.

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.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re back to talk about No More Heroes and Part Time UFO. Galen also critiques the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Halloween event and has thoughts on upcoming seasonal events, too. Oni Dino beat Trials of Mana, and it’s a mixed bag. And to mark the release of the PS5 and Xbox SX, we consider the routes Nintendo could go down in the second half of the Switch’s life. Pro version? Full handheld? A new console entirely?

No More Heroes 1 and 2 finally made their long-awaited return on Switch this week. Both Wii games were announced and released as part of the latest Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase.

Engine Software has confirmed that it was responsible for the new Switch versions of No More Heroes 1 and 2. The developer has worked on several other Switch projects and ports including Ni no Kuni, Little Nightmares, and The Legend of Heroes.

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.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’ve got so much to say about the excellent Nintendo Direct, No More Heroes, Cloud gaming on the Switch, Bravely Default II, the Hyrule Warriors demo, and more. This Direct was basically made for Oni Dino. Galen has some theories on Nintendo’s new plans for mid-generation reform with Cloud gaming. Also, that Hyrule Warriors gameplay is surprisingly complex; come for our early impressions. Later on, we answer some listener mail where we talk about video games inspiring or impacting us as an art form.
