No More Heroes 3 ‘won’t happen soon’ – Report

Grasshopper chief Suda 51 expresses desire to makes sequel, but warns that it’s not in the cards in the near future.

 

Later this year, Western gamers will be treated to No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise. Exclusive to the PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe, the game will support the console’s Move motion-sensing system. It is also a high-definition port of the 2007 Wii title No More Heroes, which was the brainchild of Grasshopper Manufacture head Goichi Suda, also known as Suda 51 (Killer 7).


A third No More Heroes game could be in the cards…eventually.

Last night in Japan, Suda held a charity event to both raise money for victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami and promote his new Electronic Arts-published game, Shadows of the Damned. According to a Famitsu report (translated by Andria Sang), the famed designer also discussed the possibility of a new No More Heroes game, expressing interest in such a project.

“Although it won’t happen soon, I’d like to do it at some point,” he reportedly told the crowd.

If it comes to fruition, the next No More Heroes game would be the third in the series. The second game, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, was published for the Wii in North America in early 2010 by Ubisoft. No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise will be published by Konami, with AQ Interactive handling development.

As previously mentioned, Heroes Paradise will be an HD version of the original No More Heroes. The game presents a hyperstylized and violent world of fanboy fantasies in which protagonist Travis Touchdown ascends the ranks of an assassins’ guild by murdering all of his competition. In addition to becoming the world’s greatest hired killer, Travis hopes his efforts will win the affections of his beautiful and mysterious benefactor.

Besides PlayStation Move controls, AQ has added more boss characters to Heroes Paradise, as well as improved the artificial intelligence of No More Heroes’ enemies. Players will also be able to face off against previously defeated bosses in the newly added Rebout mode. Lastly, Viewer mode lets gamers watch the game’s cutscenes without playing through the game.

PlayStation Rewards in limbo – Report

Following extended beta, Sony’s PS3 customer-appreciation program appears to be on indefinite hold.

Last October,
Sony announced PlayStation Rewards, a free loyalty program aimed at avid PlayStation 3 users. According to the company, the tiered program was designed to allow players to “gain exclusive status, recognition, and rewards based on a variety of PlayStation-centric activities they engage in across the PlayStation ecosystem.” Activities that yielded rewards included buying content from the PlayStation Store, playing a game for the first time, or taking PlayStation surveys. In December, the
company introduced quest meta-games as another form of advancement.


PlayStation Rewards may never see the light of day.

Like most schemes of such a large scale, PlayStation Rewards first underwent an extended beta process, one which is wrapping up at the end of the month. However, according to a report on gaming blog Joystiq, Sony has shelved plans to launch PlayStation Rewards in April.

In an e-mail sent out to beta participants, Sony explained that, “Based on what we learned, we have decided the program is not ready to roll out to the public in April as originally planned. But rest assured, we will continue to thank loyal and devoted customers like you with innovative offerings.”

In a follow-up e-mail to Joystiq, the company offered further explanation. “After careful consideration and evaluation following the PlayStation Rewards beta, we have decided not to roll out the program to the public at this time,” said a Sony rep. “We remain committed to providing the best overall consumer experience for our users, and we will be refocusing our efforts in the near future to further developing PlayStation Plus and our other network services.”
