No More Heroes 2 is rated M for Mature by the ESRB and contains blood and gore, intense violence, partial nudity, sexual themes, and strong language, all of which may be featured in this review.
Released in 2010, No More Heroes 2 definitely had a lot to live up to. The first title in the series developed quite the following, making it one of the most appealing Wii exclusives from third party publishers. And while No More Heroes 2 does a lot of things right, there are some issues with the title.

Rising Star Games localizes many of Ignition’s and Xseed’s titles for Europe, but Arc Rise Fantasia may not be as fortunate. The release of the game had continued to get pushed back, and now, Rising Star Games has removed the title from their release schedule.
The title launched in North America this Summer, and wasn’t received well by critics. According to VGchartz, the title only moved 50,000 units in North America. Stack on top some terrible voice acting, and you don’t exactly have a formula for success on the market.
Everyone knows I hate titles not being localized, and it is only so much worse due to the Wii’s region-locking. Sorry to anyone in Europe who was looking forward to the title. On the bright side, at the very least there is a translation in English. And if you’re reading this post, that shouldn’t be a problem.
The half-minute hero returns in a true sequel to the 2009 PlayStation Portable exclusive, Half-Minute Hero. While the title has been announced, little details have released.
Previously there was a spiritual sequel that also hit the PlayStation Portable, but it never released outside of Japan. Hopefully, XSeed Games and Rising Star Games, the publishers of the original title outside of Japan, will pick this one up for localization.
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.”
