No More Heroes 1 and 2 heading to PC next week

Marvelous news.

Marvelous and Grasshopper Manufacture's cult-hack-and-slash adventures No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle are heading to Steam next Wednesday, 9th June.

First released on Wii in 2007, No More Heroes follows the stylish, frequently ludicrous, and dependably ultra-violent adventures of Travis Touchdown, an ordinary game and anime geek who inadvertently becomes embroiled with the United Assassins Association.

What follows is a third-person hack-and-slash romp, replete with a phenomenal soundtrack, that sees Travis - lightsaber-like beam Katana in hand - murdering his way through the Association's top-ranked assassins in order to stay alive. If you've never played the game before, expect geysers of blood, a winningly weird sense of humour, and (rather barren) bike-based open-world interludes in amongst the spirited and largely entertaining action.

No More Heroes' 2010 sequel, Desperate Struggle, tweaked and streamlined the original formula - ditching the largely unloved open-world segments and upping the boss fights, among other things - to deliver another flamboyantly unpredictable murder-outing for Travis and pals.

Both games will feature support for HD resolutions at 60fps when they make their way to Steam on 9th June, priced £17.99/€19.99/$19.99 USD each. There'll be 10% off No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle until 15th June.
