No More Heroes

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?

We also have a podcast discord for listeners to chill, chat, and make friends. Check out links and timestamps below and come hang out.

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.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, special guest Barry (Goodman?) is back to chat with Oni Dino and Galen in this extra-long, bonus episode! Nintendo Switch is at 62 million units sold, but will they keep the momentum with the PS5 and Xbox Series X coming soon? What will happen to third-party support moving forward and how should Nintendo prepare for it? In the Adventure Log, Barry elaborates on the appeal of the Legend of Heroes series and the Trails of Cold Steel sub-series and why the third entry is a good jumping-in point, and Galen tries out shell-swapping his Switch Pro Controller. In the news, Pikmin 3 Deluxe was announced, bringing up the topic of full-priced Wii U ports; Blizzard employees rally for fair pay and better working conditions; and Aeon Must Die has serious allegations against it from the original devs.

It’s a big episode—check out links and timestamps below and come hang out.

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.

GamesRadar recently caught up for an interview with Suda51 for all things Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. Although there was talk about the upcoming Switch game, Suda51 took some time to reflect on the series as a whole.

One noteworthy part of the discussion came about while Suda51 commented on No More Heroes being accepted in the west compared to Japan. He said that there has “definitely” been a “much more positive reaction” in North America and Europe. Although the reaction in Japan hasn’t been particularly bad, it perhaps hasn’t been as warmly received due to its violent nature and blood.
