No More Heroes
A newly-spotted Taiwanese rating suggests that the original No More Heroes could soon be arriving on Nintendo Switch. The game, which first launched on Wii back in 2008 in the west, has been a contender for Switch for some time now. Back in 2018, series director Goichi ‘Suda51’ Suda said that he’d been having conversations with Japanese publisher Marvelous over a potential Switch port of the game, saying he’d “love to be able to do that”.
This new rating lists Marvelous as the publisher, suggesting that those talks have progressed nicely and that an official announcement may well be imminent. Now, before we get ahead of ourselves, this isn’t an outright confirmation of the game for the Switch. It’s possible that the ratings board got its wires crossed. However, No More Heroes series director Suda 51 did say that the first game might be on its way to new platforms in an interview last year.
“Yes. We’re currently in talks with Marvelous to make that happen,” said Suda 51 to Dengeki PlayStation. “It’s in positive consideration, so I hope we’ll be able to make a good announcement.” He seemed pretty positive then, and perhaps the conversations between Grasshopper Manufacture and Marvelous have borne fruit. We’ll keep you in the loop once we know more.
The Taiwanese ratings board has been particularly good to us just recently, also potentially giving the game away on new releases of Liege Dragon, Redout: Space Assault and World of Tanks Blitz, as well as Crimzon Clover.
