UBISOFT® TO PUBLISH NO MORE HEROES 2: DESPERATE STRUGGLE
SAN FRANCISCO – June 1, 2009 – Ubisoft® revealed today at its E3 press conference that the company will be releasing No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle exclusively for the Wii(TM) system from Nintendo in North America in early 2010. No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle follows up on the success of No More Heroes that garnered multiple industry awards, including GamePro’s Wii game of the year, GameSpot’s Best Wii game and Editor’s Choice award and Best Original IP, IGN’s Best Wii Story and Best Action Wii Game.
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle continues the tale of punk anti-hero Travis Touchdown, the Japanese anime Otaku, and pro wrestling-obsessed assassin. Travis finds himself at the bottom of the UAA (United Assassins Association) rankings and must wage war to become the No. 1 assassin once again. The follow-up to the popular No More Heroes will offer fans infectious, fun gameplay that allows you to wield not just one, but two swords and face multiple bosses simultaneously in bigger-than-ever boss battles. The game is created by video game design legend Goichi Suda (Suda 51), developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and published by Marvelous Entertainment.
“Ubisoft is excited to bring No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle to North American gamers,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “No More Heroes won countless accolades from both gamers and media alike, making the sequel one of the most anticipated core titles for Wii.”
