He who laughs last, laughs best. That’s what I always told myself whenever the Japanese would get a game months or years before I would get the opportunity to play it. I would hope, often against fate, that the version I got would have a special edition full of nifty stuff the Japanese didn’t get and then I could feel better about the wait.
Now the shoe is on the other foot. The difference is that Japan is getting a special edition that I’d actually want. Behold the No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle Hopper’s Edition. It comes packaged with the game, a DVD featuring an all-new film and some other goodies, a soundtrack CD and an art book. Then, just to rub it in, people who pre-order in anticipation of the October 21st release will also get an “erotica comic.”
The whole package will be sold for 8,980 yen or just over a hundred US dollars. If I hadn’t already purchased the game once, I’d probably give some thought to importing this. But, honestly, I’m mostly just curious to see where they take that comic.
