Marvelous says No More Heroes 1 and 2 on Switch saw strong sales in North America and Europe

Travis still has it!

No More Heroes 3 is coming to Switch later this year, and it's an exclusive for the platform. Nintendo fans no doubt have a special connection to the franchise, and it's clear they still hold those original titles near and dear years later.

Marvelous recently shared a sales update on a number of titles, including the ports of No More Heroes 1 and 2 to Switch. According to Marvelous, both titles saw strong sales in North America and Europe. Unfortunately, they didn't share specific sales figures.

Engine Software says No More Heroes I & 2 ports to Switch took about 6 months, explain why they chose the original Wii version

Travis touches down

Suda51 had been saying for quite some time that he wanted to see No More Heroes 1 & 2 come to Switch, and that actually happened last year thanks to a partnership with Engine Software. In an interview with NintendoEverything, Engine Software talks about how long those ports took.

It took us about five to six months start to finish of pure development time. So that excludes all legal steps and evaluation of the source material, and discussions about what we want the port to be.

Fans were surprised to see that the ports were of the original Wii games, rather than the HD versions that landed on PS3. Wondering why that decision was made? Engine Software has an explanation.

Suda-san was clear from the start he wanted to work off the Wii original versions. We briefly discussed adapting some of the changes made in Heroes Paradise into the original game but having looked at the differences between the versions it became clear early on that the PS3 version is very different from the Wii version (as low level as 3D models having more bones and a totally different naming convention). I think for the sake of style, it was a decision on an aesthetic level by Suda51 to use the originals (since there was no HD version of No More Heroes 2).

Stylish as ever, Travis

No More Heroes hit the Switch last week, and both fans and newcomers have been diving in to see how Travis' journey started. Those who played the game on Wii remember it well, but just how improved is the Switch version? Check out the video above to see the Switch version compared to the Wii original, as well as the PS3/360 re-release.

Remasters of No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle available now on Switch

No more waiting!

Torrance, Calif. – October 28, 2020 – Following this morning’s Nintendo Direct Mini reveal, XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., surprised fans with the North American launch of remastered versions of No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle. The stylish cult classics from the imaginative mind of SUDA51 were previously released for the Nintendo Wii™ system in 2008 and 2010 respectively. Developed by Grasshopper Manufacture Inc. and Marvelous Inc., both titles are now available for the Nintendo Switch™ system digitally via the Nintendo eShop in North America. To celebrate the return of these beloved titles, XSEED Games is running a 10% launch discount off the $19.99 price for each game through November 14. The remastered titles feature a host of enhancements including HD textures, improved system font, additional language support, and more.

In No More Heroes, Travis Touchdown starts off as the #11 ranked assassin in the United Assassins Association (UAA), and with his trusty beam katana must face off against the world’s top 10 assassins. He rides the streets of Santa Destroy on his signature motorbike, the Schpeltiger, and packs an arsenal of pro-wrestling moves honed from years of watching wrestlers power bomb and body slam each other. It’s a long way to the top, but the all-American otaku won’t stop until he’s the #1 assassin in the world, baby!

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle takes place three years after Travis achieves his goal of being the #1 assassin in the UAA. However, time has not been kind to him, and he finds himself falling down the ranks to #51. Adding to his problems is Skelter Helter, another assassin who has sworn revenge on Travis for the death of his brother. With his trusty beam katanas in-hand for twice the hacking and slashing, and teamed up with his allies Shinobu and Henry Cooldown, Travis is on a mission to reclaim his #1 position and fend off new challengers. An otaku at heart though, there’s always time for retro 8-bit minigames to help him earn some money and power up!

Developed by Grasshopper Manufacture Inc. and Marvelous Inc. and published by XSEED Games in North America on the Nintendo Switch™ system, the remastered versions of No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle are available for purchase on the Nintendo eShop priced at $19.99 each with a 10% launch discount through November 14. Both titles have been rated “M” for Mature on Nintendo Switch by the ESRB.
