According to the scans (as translated by GameSpot), No More Heroes: Hero's Playground will be a revamped version of the original No More Heroes with a handful of new features, including the new Very Sweet mode. By meeting certain requirements in the game, players will be able to unlock new revealing costumes for the female characters to wear during cutscenes and in the heat of action. Details on how the game's Wii-specific controls will be adapted to the Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers are expected to be revealed at a later date.

Directed by Killer 7 creator Suda-51, who recently struck a publishing deal with Electronic Arts, No More Heroes presents a hyperstylized and violent world of fanboy fantasies. The game's protagonist, Travis Touchdown, is tasked with ascending the ranks of an assassin's guild by murdering all of his competition. In addition to becoming the world's greatest assassin, Travis hopes his efforts will win the affections of his beautiful and mysterious benefactor. Along with a unique visual style, the game features motion-sensing controls to slash with Touchdown's Jedi-esque lightsaber or perform pro wrestling moves on foes.
