No More Heroes (it's an upsetting title, we know) is the next development step of feted game developer, SUDA 51 (he of Killer 7 fame).

No More Heroes is based around the character of Travis Touchdown, a drop-out animé fan from Santa Destroy, California who wins a beam katana in an internet auction and, by a series of some bizarre coincidences, becomes a leading hitman!

No More Heroes is a free-roaming, sandbox style game, in which Travis gets around either by foot or by motorbike (motorbike being a really modest way of describing the huge, grunting thing he cruises around on) in his quest to kill the top ten assassins and assume a position at the top of the pile.

The game makes innovative use of PlayStation Move, which controls Travis' beam katana (we don't want to say 'light saber-alike', but there you go) while the navigation controller is in charge of the character's direction. Whether it's reminiscent of a light saber or not - sword play with a Wii Remote! What more could you ask for? Wrestling moves? Oh, go on then... HD graphics? Well, since we've got the PS3 version here, you're in luck on that, too...
