Friday 12th February 2010: Leading videogames publisher Rising Star Games today confirms that No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, exclusively for the Nintendo Wii, is on track to be released in Australia and New Zealand at the end of April 2010.

Soaked in slick graphic novel-style visuals, No More Heroes 2 is clever, mature and further validates the series’ reputation as one of the most original and unique games on the Wii. The story follows Travis Touchdown who now finds himself the 51st ranked assassin – placed at the bottom of the UAA (United Assassins Association) table. He has to fight his way back to the top, while seeking revenge for the murder of his best friend.

Legendary developer Suda 51 is calling No More Heroes 2 the game he’s always wanted to make – playing on the original’s strengths – complete with smart storyline, refined combat (utilising two beam katanas) and characters, and red blood. Heaps of bright, red blood.
