No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise coming in Sextilis 2011 photo
No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise coming in Sextilis 2011
by Jonathan Holmes

For those that aren't familiar with the original ten month Roman calendar (which starred March as the first month of the year), let me translate for you. "Sextilis" is the ancient Roman way of saying "August". What I'm trying to tell you is, No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise is coming to the PS3 in the United States on August 16th. Mark you calendars accordingly.

Also, just in case there is any confusion, let me make it clear that this is the super-enhanced version of Heroes' Paradise; the one that's being released in Japan as No More Heroes: Red Zone. That means we're getting the bug fixes, the leaderboard enabled boss fights against Alice Twilight, Skelter Helter, Nathan Copeland, Kimmy Howel, and Matt Helms (all from No More Heroes 2), the ten new missions (including human bowling), four new beam katanas, four new bike variations, free camera mode for all character models and Travis's hotel room, and of course, HD visuals and optional PS Move support, that didn't make it to the Japanese build of Heroes' Paradise.

I'm hoping to get some time with this new build of the game, and with its producer, Tak Fuji, at E3 2011, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

[UPDATE] Missed the show?  Watch the archived clip above!  Subscribe to us on Justin.TV to get notified when we have future live shows.

We're having two of Grasshopper Manufacture's biggest names over the house tonight for a live stream hangout and interview. Akira Yamaoka (ex-Silent Hill composer and producer) and Massimo Guarini will be over for dinner while on a tour promoting Shadows of the Damned, and we mean to fix them up a treat.

I'm planning on badgering them for info about No More Heroes 3, getting Yamaoka-san's opinion on the past and present Silent Hill games and movies, asking them both about some of the big shake-ups in the the game development world lately, and their thoughts on Japanese vs. Western development. We're also going to kick off a contest when they come over, with the prize being some limited edition No More Heroes gear and stuffs.

So yeah, get ready for that, and please, let us know if you have any questions. You can ask them here, or join us tomorrow at around 8pm PST for the live chat.
