Fans of Suda51's unique brand of quirky auteur game design, rejoice, for your day may well have come. No More Heroes - that's the original Wii game from 2008 - has been rated for Nintendo Switch by the Taiwanese digital ratings board.
Is No More Heroes coming to Nintendo Switch?
If the Taiwanese listing is to be believed, this means we'll be getting a port of the original No More Heroes for the Switch. The listing definitely points to the original and not any of its sequels or spinoffs; the artwork accompanying the listing is of the original game, and there's also a link to the Marvelous Entertainment web page for No More Heroes. Naturally, the listing is entirely in Taiwanese, so you might need to employ some translation wizardry to figure out the finer details; Google Translate won't serve you too well here.
During E3 2019, Suda51 - real name Goichi Suda - expressed an interest in bringing older No More Heroes games to the Switch, with rumors to the same effect flying around as early as 2018. He's also said he wants to bring the series to PlayStation 4 (thanks, Gematsu), so we might be seeing a No More Heroes revival in its early stages. We don't yet know whether a prospective No More Heroes Switch port would be based on the original Wii version or the updated PlayStation 3 version No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise. It's also likely that any future No More Heroes Switch releases would depend largely on how this initial release was received.
We'll bring you more info on this potential No More Heroes Switch port as we get it. Until then, if you're hankering for more Suda51, you can expect the upcoming No More Heroes 3 to launch sometime this year, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
