No More Heroes has garnered a nice niche fanbase at best in North America, but thankfully that isn't stopping Konami from bringing over No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise—an enhanced port of the 2007 Nintendo Wii title. Heroes' Paradise is scheduled to hit Playstation 3 in North America on August 16.
We'll be getting Heroes' Paradise less than a month after Marvelous Entertainment's Japanese release of No More Heroes: Red Zone Edition, but have no fear, Heroes' Paradise sports the same content as Red Zone. That includes guest bosses from No More Heroes 2, bonus missions, online leaderboards and optimized loading times.
More than anything, it's just going to be nice to control the brainchild of Goichi Suda (AKA Suda 51, also known for Killer7 and the upcoming Shadows of the Damned)—everyone's favorite beam katana wielding otaku, Travis Touchdown—in glorious HD. It should also offer a nice first-time opportunity for many to play this one-of-a-kind action title.
No More Heroes follows Travis Touchdown, an otaku obsessed with stuff like pro wrestling and anime. One day, Travis wins a beam katana from an online auction, and is soon roped into a world of assassins vying for the #1 spot. He meets a woman, Sylvia Christel, who offers up his first assignment: Killing an assassin known as The Drifter. Doing so lands him at the #11 United Assassins Association rank. The next step? Rising to the top of the ranks by cutting his way through the remaining top assassins.
