Rising Star has picked up the publishing rights to No More Heroes, and will be pumping it out across Europe in February.

It's a gory action game dreamt-up by Killer 7 creator Goichi Suda (Suda51) and Grasshopper Manufacture, which boasts stylised visuals and violent black humour.

You fill the shoes of Travis Touchdown, who is soon approached by an assassin head-hunter and asked to prove himself in combat against 10 other bloodthirsty killers.

Each of these opponents has their own story to tell, too, before you wave the Wiimote around to chop them up with Travis' lightsaber-like Beam Katana.

"This is exactly the right product to broaden the format's appeal to a wider, more serious gaming audience," said Martin Defries, big cheese at Rising Star.

And it looks gruesomely fantastic so far; just the sort of thing the platform needs. Pop over to our No More Heroes gamepage to see the blood-spattered trailer from this year's Game Developer's Conference.
