Video game ratings boards have often served as a good indicator for upcoming unannounced titles. The Taiwanese ratings board in particular has been responsible for a number of leaks. Now, the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee has revealed that No More Heroes 1, the 2007 Nintendo Wii hack ‘n slash title from Suda 51 could be coming to Nintendo Switch.
This new release is reportedly singularly published by Marvelous. Back in 2007, No More Heroes 1 had utilised multiple publishers based on region including Ubisoft. What this means exactly for the upcoming release is currently unknown, though this isn't the first time that No More Heroes 1 was proposed for newer consoles.
Back in July 2019, Goichi “Suda 51” Suda revealed that “We’re currently in talks with [intellectual property holder] Marvelous to make that [No More Heroes for newer consoles] happen. It’s in positive consideration, so I hope we’ll be able to make a good announcement.”
Being a Wii title, No More Heroes primarily utilised motion controls. That being said, an enhanced version of the game was later released for PlayStation 3, which did not require motion controls. Currently it is unknown which version of the game is coming to Switch.
Furthermore, it is also unknown whether No More Heroes 1 will come to Xbox, PS4 and PC. while Suda 51 previously expressed interest in doing so, No More Heroes 3, which is currently in development, is exclusive to the Switch.
Of course, while ratings boards are often accurate, a re-release of No More Heroes 1 isn’t official until the publisher itself announces it.
