“No More Heroes” might not be the very best game on the Wii, but it is certainly the wackiest. It’s fun, too, since you get to swing a lightsaber-alike around and cut bad guys into little bad guy bits. An enhanced version of the game was released in Japan for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 under the title “No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise.” It is set for a PS3-exclusive port to North America and Europe later this year, but now there’s a new listing in Japan for “No More Heroes: Red Zone.” It’s another PS360 port that adds even more content, and it’s set for release on July 21.
The PS3 version will add Move support — “Heroes’ Paradise” had none, though the U.S. release reportedly does — and be bumped up to a CERO Z rating (equivalent to the ESRB’s M), Andria Sang reports. There’s no mention of a “Red Zone” release outside of Japan, unfortunately.
Hopefully some of the extra content will be integrated into the U.S. version of “Heroes’ Paradise,” as there’s quite a bit of added content to look forward to. “Red Zone” adds in 10 missions that weren’t in the Wii release, five bosses from “No More Heroes 2,” a boss battle mode with online rankings and a “forbidden view” mode. It also sounds like there will be a few pre-order or launch bonuses.
“Heroes’ Paradise” doesn’t have a set U.S. release date yet, but it too adds more than just a high definition makeover. The original Sony reveal confirmed that added modes will include a “Rebout Mode” for taking on former foes, added bosses and a “Viewer” mode for checking out previously viewed cutscenes.
