No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise exclusive on PS3 in 2011

Konami has today announced via Sony that No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise is coming to North America as a PlayStation 3 exclusive. Previously available in Japan for both the PS3 and Xbox 360, the HD remake of the cult Wii game is hitting the PS3 only in the West, with obligatory PS Move support.

Heroes’ Paradise will get a special “rebout” mode for taking on previous bosses, as well as a number of additional bosses exclusive to the port. There will be options for both Move and DualShock 3 controls, if you’re not a fan of waggle. It’s slated for a vague 2011 release.

Quite a nice win for Sony, and hopefully the PS3 fanbase will snap it up as they do any exclusive title that comes their way. Despite its strange design flaws, No More Heroes was a cool game, and it deserves to sell more than five copies!
