No More Heroes is one of the upcoming Wii titles that has really caught our eye with its Beam Katana-based battling and assassin driven storyline. And because it's being produced by Suda 51, the man behind the crazy but brilliant Killer 7, it's guaranted to have a much more adult theme than the average offerning for Nintendo's console.
We haven’t heard much about No More Heroes since our interview with the man himself back in December, but with the release of three, blink-and-you’ll-miss-'em, teaser clips on the newly updatedofficial website we’re at last given a fresh look at some of the gameplay.
The first clip, “Holly grenade”, sees our assassin in an extremely life threatening situation, involving a deep hole and a live grenade, but it’s the second and third clips that really got us excited.
These show the game in action complete with on-screen Wii-mote commands, our particular favourite shows the player being prompted to thrust the Wii-mote and nunchuk downwards, resulting in a guys head being slammed into the ground.
The Beam Katana, a lightsabre-style weapon, is also on short display, and the prospect of wielding this deadly blade using the Wii-mote has us grinning like a Cheshire cat.
You can view all three movies over on the official website, which is promising to host a total of 51 clips over the coming weeks.
