No More Heroes coming to smartphones

Travis Touchdown and his beam katana of pure awesomeness will soon be slicing up smartphones. Yesterday, Marvelous AQL confirmed Goichi Suda (aka Suda 51) is in works to bring his over-the-top otaku action game to iOS and Android platforms, and will hit Japan via DeNA and Mobage devices.

The announcement came with two new screens from the upcoming port. They hint at how the touch screen controls will work, and how the portable edition won't stray too far from the console versions, either in terms of gameplay or graphics:

The mobile No More Heroes titles was revealed during Marvelous AQL press conference, during which Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune announced he was also developing a game called JJ Rockets for smartphones, along with a new pirate RPG for the 3DS called Kaio: King of Pirates.

There's been no confirmation that any of these games will make their way out West, but considering Travis' cult fanbase in North America and Europe, it's more than likely we'll get our oily thumbs on this new iteration one way or another.

    So, that means we recharge the katana by shaking the phone like we're jacking it, right? Because I would play that game in public, all damn day, without shame.

    This is the greatest thing that has ever happened.

    IT'S ON PHONES NOW. WHY IS 360 OUT OF THE LOOP. Bleh, want this and it just makes it worse that it was PS3 and 360 in Japan. Is there a reason for the exclusion that was stated that I missed or shall I continue wallowing?

    I don't see why NMH: Paradise wasn't on the 360 in the states considering there was already a 360 version done. Seeing as how the PS3 version supports a controller as an alternative to Move, the decision to not put it on the 360 still confuses me. Maybe Konami didn't want some extra cash for going through the trouble of publishing it in the US by releasing it on the 360. I do have a PS3 so I shouldn't complain too much, but I prefer to game on Microsoft's box.
