XSEED Games revealed today that they are bringing No More Heroes 1 and 2 to PC (Steam) on June 9th. The games will cost US$19.99 each, and there will be a 10% off launch week discount running from June 9-15.
The PC ports of these SUDA51 classics will support HD resolutions and 60fps gameplay, but according to the Steam Store page for both games, keyboard and mouse controls are not supported, and fans who decide to pick them up will have to use a gamepad to play. Of course you should never underestimate PC gamers, so I’d bet we’ll see a mod adding some kind of kb/m support soon-ish.
About No More Heroes
In No More Heroes, Travis Touchdown starts off as the #11 ranked assassin in the United Assassins Association (UAA). With his trusty beam katana, he 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!
About No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle takes place three years after Travis achieves his goal of becoming the #1 assassin in the UAA. He takes it a little too easy, however, and finds himself falling all the way 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. Always an otaku at heart, there’s also plenty of time for retro 8-bit minigames to earn some cash!
