No More Heroes 2 is having some trouble making it to Europe apparently. The title was recently delayed by almost a month. Now the title is being pushed back again, but only by a week.
Those planning on picking the title up May 21st will have to look toward May 28th instead. Hopefully this date will be the final change.

VideoGamesDaily.com’s Rupert Higham recently spoke with Suda 51 for the upcoming European release of No More Heroes 2. The interview was light on No More Heroes 2 talk, but there was a bit of talk about the future of the franchise.
Suda 51 spoke about the possibilities of a No More Heroes spin off. He said that he would like to use another character instead of Travis. “There is a robot character in the game called Glastonbury. It might be interesting making a game with the robot – maybe a shooting game.” Suda went on to clarify that it would be a shmup and not a first person shooter or anything of that sort.
With No More Heroes 2 only launched in one region so far, Suda 51 has no concrete plans for a third entry in the franchise. But, he does have a good idea of what platform he would like it to appear on. “I’m not sure if it’s possible to do it right now and there are no definite plans for No More Heroes 3 yet, but if I do, I want to make it on the new Wii – Wii 2.”
Europeans can check out No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle April 30th exclusively on the Wii.

No More Heroes 2 is out and on store shelves in North America, but in Europe details on the title have been few and far between.
Europeans should keep their eyes peeled next week though. A Rising Star Games representative said “I can tell you we will make an announcement about this next week” for No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle.
Hopefully we will get a solid release date.
Nintendo of America announced today that they will releasing two new colors for their Wii Remotes. The two new colors will be Blue and Pink and will be packaged with Wiimotion+ accessories. The press release didn’t mention the price of the controller set, but we could probably assume it is the same as the black Wii Remote and Wii Motion plus combo which is $49.99. The controllers will be available February 14th.
Aside from new colors Nintendo also announced the release dates for multiple titles set for 2010. Endless Ocean: Blue World will be coming out February 22nd, Pokemon HeartGold and Pokemon SoulSilver will be hitting store shelves March 14th, and Warioware D.I.Y. will be coming to DS on March 28th. The press release also reconfirms Glory of Hercales for January 18th.
As for third party titles Nintendo adds some insight into some third party releases as well. The only new solid dates I noticed were The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces on January 5th and Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon for March 12th both of which are from XSeed games.
Some other games just got general release dates. The most notable being Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing for March, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle for late January, and Sonic Classic Collections for Spring.
Nintendo also released a release list for all titles heading to Wii and DS. You can check it out after the jump.
