No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise coming in Sextilis 2011

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.
