Coming to Japan in December, Ubisoft bringing it to the US February 2008

http://wii.ign.com/a...1/821117p1.html

No More Heroes is developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and directed by Suda 51, who also helmed the critically acclaimed GameCube adventure title Killer 7. The brutal endeavor pits players as Travis Touchdown, a hardcore anime fan living in the fictional town of Santa Destroy, who takes it upon himself to murder the world's top assassins so that he can be number one. To accomplish this task, Touchdown must battle 10 "bloodthirsty killers -- all with deep stories of their own"

Yea I have a feeling its going to feel like Zelda in terms of how the game controls, so cruising around on his bike swinging his sword seems only natural.

After watching those two trailers can I get a fucking yes. Anime like fights where you play as a guy with a lightsaber. Oh fucking yes. Now I can't wait for this game.

I love the game and have been waiting for it ever since it was hinted at; however, I do dislike countdowns very much.

It looks interesting minus the lightsaber ripoff.

And I'm not one to complain about graphics, but I just can't get into that style or whatever it is they are going for. For example all those guys on the beach were blacked out because the shadow is too heavy on one side while the highlights are almost whiteout. At least make the game so it doesn't hurt my eyes when I look at it.

Gameplay is what makes a game worth playing - not story or graphics

Its actually not a ripoff... it is a lightsaber.

Johnny is also a Star Wars freak, and happens to purchase a lightsaber on an Internet auction. After that, he starts to make his living as an assassin using this lightsaber.

Suda 51 is my biggest role model ATM, so anything he does or says... i'm his bitch.

Definitely the first original Wii title to not be gimmicky.

A lightsaber that's not in a SW game? These guys better expect a call from George's lawyers. lol

Yeah, I recall some way they were modifying it to keep the spirit of the idea but avoid the legal conflict, but I can't find it.

I dunno. I really want this game to be good, but I just can't see it getting above a 7.0 from any major reviewer. There's just something about the gameplay that looks unpolished and generic.

The style is spot-on though.

Well, I guess it's up to what you like. If you really care about what reviewers say, Killer 7 got a 77% and 70% for the GC and PS2:

Not sure if you've played/enjoyed it, though.

Exactly what i've been thinking.
I hope i'm wrong, but I have a feeling this will be Wii's own "God Hand".

Knowing the level of Rolento's devotion to this game, and given the countdown's near-finality, I almost want to take a bet on whether or not he'll still be psyched about the game when more information is revealed.

Pulling for this one to turn out well; looks really cool.

Hopefully, it's successful and encourages other companies to put out new, original Wii games too.

The site goes by the clock on your computer. I wonder if Rolento has his computer clock set correctly.

The real reason why they have the countdown is so that Suda 51 can stand in front of the server for 183 hours straight, just so some of his "coolness" gets absorbed by the website.

So is this game going to get an AO too? Last I heard it was supposed to be more violent than manhunt.

That's what Suda said himself. Though like on the Manhunt thread, they are talking about Nintendo's policy and AO games. So, who knows, more than likely then they will have to change a few things, which really blows seeing as how they seem to have gotten the motions on the wiimote done right and didn't feel tacked on (at least from that one review).

"Cartoon" violence isn't the same as "Graphic Violence." The rating boards do recognize the difference between the two, and are more likely to let this one through. Especially since Manhunt is their obvious scapegoat this time around.
