Unexpectedly, Nintendo and Marvelous released No More Heroeson last week in the Nintendo Direct mini-release – a sexy, ultra-hard Wii game with a hard M for adults. Players take control of Otaku Travis Touchdown, an assassin originally hired by the Americans, who manages to break through the Santa Destroy assassins to become the best of them all.
More Heroes : It’s a franchise that always fascinated me when it was first released for Wii in 2007, but for some reason I missed him and the sequel. Nintendo and Suda51 built No More Heroes 3 for a change for over a year, and I thought I’d never be able to play the whole series. Fortunately, my world has changed and everything is fine.
It’s more beautiful than Wii, but it’s still a Wii game. There is only a certain amount of polish and gloss that can be improved, and the graphics certainly do not age well. At the same time, No More Heroes is somewhat more gracefully outdated than the other titles of its time, thanks to the artistic style of the game.
The gameplay is sensible, the game is fantastic at the switch. Faithful to its console with the grandfather of motion control, the game offers possibilities for motion control thanks to the Joy-Con controller. However, the input of the motion control is not always perfect and I have noticed that I adhere to the most important controls where possible. Fortunately, if you prefer to just use the Switch Pro button, which works perfectly, that’s my favorite way of playing.
In portable mode, the game works perfectly without any drop in frame rate or degradation of graphics. During the fight there are a number of one-touch buttons, which in manual mode are a bit difficult to remove due to the short joysticks on the joy-con. So far, the game is still perfect for portable devices and gaming on the go. The side quests and minigames are perfect if you want to take a short 30 minute break for lunch and finish a few things.
Connected to my TV, the game looks perfect and works perfectly. The download time is much faster than the Wii version, both on the docking station and on your PDA.
The soundtrack, or lack of it, can sometimes be a bit wobbly and too easy compared to what’s happening around you on the screen. All enemies seem to share the same cry of death, which becomes quite annoying after the first few days. However, the voice playing during the cutbacks is still pretty good.
More Heroesseems, apart from its graphics, the perfect cliché of the alternative culture of the mid-2000s. All this evil punk rock is there and manifests itself entirely through its leader. Even though I never played it when it came out, the game reminded me with a certain nostalgia of the time I was at school when it came out in the West.
The design of the game is also a relic from the past. There are difficult times when you have to repeat a job or a side mission to get enough money for the next battle in history. More Heroes allows you to play its minigames to move on to the next part of the story, and not all are equal. Many of these works are simply boring. It’s like an artificial lining to make the game last longer, which is the same criticism the game received on Wii. This is by no means a non-game, but it does cause the player to lose his momentum.
The story is a creation by Frankenstein, who mixes elements of spaghetti westerns, anime and American comics in a strange fiction. As long as you don’t think too much, it works, but it could be a lot to absorb a new audience in 2020.
No More Heroes was one of the few M-rated games on Wii, making it a new game. But now that it is available on the switch, it is neck and neck with different names in the same category that are very popular on the console. Yet this game still deserves to be played because the action and gameplay are very busy.
Despite the many flaws, this is a great experience not to be missed by hackers. Santa Destroy looks a bit better than you remember, Travis is still as cool as in 2007, and this time you can play with your Pro Controller so you don’t have to break your wrist every time you need to charge the Ray Katana by shaking the WiiMote.

Final remarks : GOOD PLACES
The original vision of the ship51 is fully described here in the film No More Heroes. The Switch port is the best way to play a Wii era classic. Not for everyone, but superheroes and anime fans will surely find something for them.
Tony’s been playing since he could walk. Pokémon Blue Version helped him learn to read. His greatest achievement is not only playing the Kingdom Hearts series as a whole, but also understanding it.
