Today, Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announced today that No More Heroes, the highly anticipated action game exclusively for the Wii home video game system from Nintendo, has shipped to store shelves.
Developed by Grasshopper Manufacture under the direction of famed video game creator Goichi Suda (Suda 51), No More Heroes tells the story of Travis Touchdown, an otaku living in the fictional town of Santa Destroy, California. After an unexpected turn of events, Travis finds himself with a new job, at the bottom of the United Assassins Association (UAA). Ranked the 11th best assassin in the world, Travis will have to prove himself worthy and defeat 10 other killers all with deep and quirky stories of their own to make his way to the top of the assassin's league.
No More Heroes realizes the dream of Wii players everywhere; as they wield the Wii Remote to not only control Travis' beam katana but also perform spectacular wrestling moves, all during the course of his bloody journey to become number one.
Featuring avant-garde graphics, a unique storyline and a bizarre band of characters that could only come from the creative mind of Suda 51, No More Heroes enters players into a stylized world filled with edgy gameplay, one unlike anything else on the Wii.
No More Heroes is rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB and has a MSRP of $49.99.
