No More Heroes Comes To PlayStation Move In Europe

Masturbatory waggle comes to the PS3.

Konami has announced that it will publish No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise--the port of the original No More Heroes on the Wii to the Xbox 360 and PS3--in Europe sometime in 2011. However,acording to the news story seen on Joystiq, Konami has elected to only publish the PS3 version of the game, and it has announced only a European publishing deal for Heroes' Paradise. With Ubisoft walking away from its No More Heroes publishing deal, there is still no guarantee that Heroes Paradise will get a proper release in the U.S.
 
 
Here is the reason Move support is perfect for No More Heroes.

However, what makes this story really bizarre is that, in bringing the game out to Europe, Konami will also be adding PlayStation Move support to the PS3 version of Heroes' Paradise. That means that, if you do have a Move controller, you will be able to play No More Heroes using the exact same controls as the Wii version of the game. Like Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, you will be able to play a game that is, essentially, a better-looking version of a Wii game that controls exactly the same way. 
 
The very motion controls that were removed from the 360 and PS3 ports of No More Heroes are being added back into the game.   
 
== TEASER ==I am a little shocked that the way the rest of the world might get access to the HD port of No More Heroes is by adding motion control support. However, I suppose there's something to that logic; early adopters to the Move controller aren't going to have access to a huge library of games that support the hardware. If Konami can quickly and cheaply add motion support back into Heroes' Paradise, they can bring that game to an audience who's likely to be interested in anything that features Move support. And if Konami is going to spend any time and money adding Move support to the game, they might as well bring Heroes' Paradise to the U.S. as well, right?  
 
If adding Move functionality is the way I'm going to get to play No More Heroes on an HD console, than that's fine with me. The only question remaining now is how we get that 360 version of Heroes Paradise out of Japan. Adding Move support to No More Heroes make sense given its Wii origin, but you can't exactly add Kinect support to No More Heroes, can you?
 
Although, that would make charging up your beam katana way funnier.

Hello Kessler, good to have you back - at least in a way.

Hehe, penis.

Finally, I'm getting to play this game! 

Posted by nohthink

That's actually an exciting news. 

Posted by wonderhare

I'll finally play this game?! Yesssss!

Posted by MJHAYLETT

what's bizzare about adding in Move Support? I fail to see the bizarreness of it! Still if I am going to virtual wank I think its appropriate to have something hard in my hand as I do it!!!

Posted by JTHomeslice

So PS3 players will be able to play the game the way it's meant to be played.

Posted by jelekeloy

It makes sense, Kessler.  Good to see you back none the less.

You win Sony, I'll get your stupid Move just for this game.

It only does excessive masturbation-

Back in my day, we had to use our imaginations when wankin the ol' member.  We had nothing to grasp but our own cre-a-tivity! Damn kids...

Masturbatory you say? My interest has sparked.

Posted by Steve_C

It wouldn't make sense not to include Move support.
 
At least people will be able to import it easily.

 If I could give out a gold star for the day, you, my friend, would be the recipient.
Posted by adoggz

you're right kessler adding kinect support would let you masturbate for realz in the game. THAT would be cool...

Pretty cool news. My friend imported the PS3 NMH and told me that it was harder to control compared to motion controls on the Wii.

Posted by MachoFantastico

Pretty cool, always appreciated the franchise for it's gameplay and style but never enough to play it on the Nintendo Wii. Might have to give them a go.

The "fap fap fap, imma chargin mah lasar" picture I saw when the first one came out cracked me up, I have to admit.
If they made a PC version of it, I'd be happy.  Don't really care for the wagglan, but they could easily do some of the motion gimmicks with the mouse (especially the combat direction arrows).  For recharging, just shake the mouse around, or something.  It could work.

Posted by Landon

You don't even make the motion. You shake it left and right. Suda lied to all of us.

If I end up dropping money on Move I'll pick this up. I wanted to try it, but just didn't have enough interest in the Wii version.

I expect some industrious soul in Britain to alter the logo to PlayStation Wank®

Yes, and i hope its worth the wait.
Posted by fallen_elite

My final reason to buy a Wii is now gone. Awesome.

Edited by Crushed

Heard the PS3 version has terrible censoring that ruins the impact of fights, and there are some nasty loading times and glitches. Suda apparently distanced himself from this port and had nothing to do with it.
 
Hopefully Konami fixes that stuff.

Posted by MattBodega
@Crushed:  If I had to guess, I would imagine that, yes, they would remove the censoring if they brought No More Heroes out of Japan. The not-so-little-secret about japan, from what I've heard, is that they just culturally not as blood crazy as folks in the West are. The ridiculously violent games don't perform super well there. Games as ridiculously violent as No More Heroes or MadWorld are typically designed that way in order to appeal to the west, not the home market.
 
So, if Konami was intent on bringing NMH outside of Japan, I would guess that they would remove the censoring, simply because of the way they make "games for the west."

Bring it to 'Murikah!

Posted by Meowayne

Its not bizarre that they are doing it, it is bizarre how they are doing it. I have a controller that does true spatial and relative motion tracking of my hand and yet I am still going to have to push a button to use my sword? Nonsense.

Posted by MjHealy

Great news. I thought this wouldn't come out in Europe.

Can American PS3's play PAL games?
