With wholesome heroes such as Link and Mario fronting for the Nintendo Wii, it can be jarring when a graphically violent or explicit game is slated for the platform. That goes doubly so when the game is an exclusive. However, such is the case with Killer7 designer Goichi Suda's No More Heroes. Today, Ubisoft announced that it would publishing No More Heroes in North America, and that the game would arrive in February for the Wii.
Developed by Suda's Grasshoper studio, No More Heroes presents a hyperstylized, graphic adventure in the same vein as Killer7. The game's protagonist, Travis Touchdown, is tasked with ascending the ranks of an assassin's guild by proving his worth and murdering his competition. Along with a unique visual style, the game features motion-sensing controls to slash with Touchdown's Jedi-esque lightsaber or grapple with foes.
