No More Heroes

About

The name’s Travis Touchdown. Buckle up, ’cause this is how my story began.

It all started the night I was out drinking with some smokin’ hot chick at the bar. Before I knew it, I was ranked #11 in the UAA (that’s United Assassins Association)–with ten suckers standing in the way of me being #1.

I’ve got my trusty beam katana in one hand to take care of the small fries, and the other one ready to hold my girl once I take my place as the best assassin the world’s ever seen.

It’s a long way to the top, but this all-American otaku won’t stop until he’s #1, baby!

The classic slice-and-dice, nonstop action of No More Heroes has been given the HD makeover it rightfully deserves! Get ready to cut down legions of foes and square off against a cast of rival professional killers just oozing personality as you slash a path to victory.

But it’s not all hack-and-slash insanity! When you’re not fighting for your life, you’ll do part-time jobs to buy new merch, undergo training to power up for the next ranking battle, and take your tricked-out motorbike for a spin through the streets of Santa Destroy.

Key Features

  • Burn rubber through the coastal city of Santa Destroy on Travis’ motorbike, the Schpeltiger!
  • Unlock a devastating arsenal of pro-wrestling moves—from Power Bombs to Brain Busters.
  • Unleash the powerful Dark Side to mow down the competition and show ’em who’s boss!
  • Master a unique combat system that’s easy as pie to pick up, but deeper than a deep-dish pizza.

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

About

Travis Touchdown here. It’s been three years since I clawed my way to #1 in the United Assassins Association. I thought it’d be fine to take it easy for a while after that, but it looks like I rested on my laurels a little too long. I found myself sliding down the ranks all the way to #51, and to make things worse, some other assassin—Skelter Helter—comes out and starts nagging my head off about me killing his brother or something. So yeah, a real pain in the you-know-what.

Fueled by a thirst for vengeance (and a bit of good old-fashioned greed), I whipped out my beam katana once more and plunged headfirst into one helluva desperate struggle.

Experience the frenetic hack-and-slash gameplay of the sequel to No More Heroes in glorious HD! With more characters to play as and even more foes to stand in your way, there’s never a dull moment in the world of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle.

Featuring three playable characters, the ability to dual-wield beam katanas, and even bigger baddies to battle, this sexy sequel is a wild ride with more to love than ever before.

Kick back, grab a slice, and get ready to dive into a mind-melting drama the likes of which you’ve never seen!

Key Features

  • Dual-wield beam katanas as Travis Touchdown to dial the hack-and-slash insanity up to 11!
  • More baddies than ever before to go toe-to-toe with!
  • Jump through combat as the agile Shinobu or leave foes in the dust as Travis’ brother, Henry.
  • Experience a blast from the past by playing 8-bit minigames to earn money and power up!
