No More Heroes has been rated for Nintendo Switch by the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee, potentially signalling a new release for the 2008 cult classic game.
As spotted by Gematsu, a listing for Marvelous Inc’s No More Heroes was found on the rating board’s website, with ‘Switch’ listed as the game’s platform. In a 2018 interview with Nintendeal, game director Suda 51 teased that he had been “talking with Marvelous” about potential Switch ports for No More Heroes and its 2010 sequel, Desperate Struggle.
The game was previously ported to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011 with the title No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise. You can check out our review of the port here, where we said that, “for all of you who never played it the first time around, go get Heroes’ Paradise. Seriously, like, now.”
For those who haven’t played, No More Heroes is a surreal mix of GTA open world antics and hack ‘n’ slash combat. We reviewed No More Heroes back in 2008 upon its initial Wii release, awarding the game a 7.8 and praising its “snappy combat, hilarious characters” and “cinematic battles.” We also included the game in our video running through the 12 weirdest video game mechanics.
The third mainline game in the series, No More Heroes 3, is scheduled to release at some point in 2020 for Nintendo Switch. You can check out the first gameplay reveal of No More Heroes 3 here, though watch out for Suda51’s head blocking the trailer…
