Rising Star snags No More Heroes

Grasshopper's unique assassin adventure finally gets UK publisher

Rising Star Games has picked up European publishing duties for the Wii-exclusive No More Heroes, and it's about time, too.

The bizarre-looking No More Heroes is the work of Goichi Suda (or Suda-51 as he's commonly known among geeks), which places you in control of Travis Touchdown; a man with the desire to be the world's number-one assassin. How does he go about achieving his goal? By killing other top assassins. Fair dos.

Extreme violence and bad language is the name of the game, which takes on a similar abstract art direction to Grasshopper's previous project, Killer 7.

No More Heroes is down for a February 2008 release.
