No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise Might See Overseas Release; Sakura Note Not Being Localized Due to Piracy on DS

Earlier this year, Marvelous Entertainment released a Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 port of the previously Wii exclusive No More Heroes.  Ubisoft, the usual publisher in North America, backed out saying they had no interest in publishing it. But it seems another publishing may have taken the bait.

Siliconera had an interview at E3 with Ignition Entertainment, who has published the Wii exclusive Muramasa: The Demon Blade and are currently localizing Arc Rise Fantasia. The publisher said they had their eyes on the title, but backed away because they “believe that another publisher will publish it.

That quote is a little vague unfortunately. It’s hard to tell if they know another publisher (Xseed Games maybe?) who are looking into it, or if they just think some one else is going to pick it up.

Siliconera also asked Ignition Entertainment about Sakura Note, a DS RPG also developed by Marvelous Entertainment. Unfortunately, this title isn’t so lucky. Apparently the company believes DS piracy is bad enough that the title wouldn’t perform well here.

  1. Are you serious? I really wanted to play Sakura Note, it looks really interesting. I hoped it would be localized because of the names attached to it, but now. . .Aw man.

  2. Awesome news for fans or future fans. I’m not sure that I would be willing to buy NMH again, though. Updated graphics aren’t going to cut it for me. :/
