Grasshopper Manufacture's stylish Wii game is finally on its way stateside.

Speaking to IGN on Wednesday, Ubisoft revealed that it would be localizing Grasshopper Manufacture's No More Heroes on Wii. Saying that, "Ubisoft is excited to be bringing Suda 51's latest adventure to gamers in North America," VP of Publishing Jay Cohen assured fans that the United States would be able to play the game in February.

Purists can also rest easy, since Cohen also remarked that, "The game Ubisoft publishes in North America will have all of the content that its Japanese counterpart does. We wanted to make sure that gamers here would not miss out on any of the action or storyline details created by the talented development team in Japan."

You can read the whole story, as well as view the all-new trailer, at IGN Wii.

Game looks sweet. Even more reasons for me to keep saving $ to buy a wii.

It's not surprising at all that Karl was the one to post this news. face-icon-small-happy.gif

You know I'm happy when it is coming but I'm not too hot about Ubisoft handling the localization. I haven't played a Japanese game that was localized by Ubisoft yet that hasn't had grammatical errors. The worse was Grandia II for the Dreamcast, the other was more recent yet I cannot remember what the name was.

The voice work is already in English. As long as they don't have monkeys at the keyboards it should be fine.

I don't trust Ubisoft much either, but we got to give them the benefit of the doubt, for now.

i may get this but no guarantees

Wonder why the didn't' get Capcom back on publishing duty again...

Eh, potential translation problems? That's a bit of a downer.

Still, this is nice news as I wanted to see this game localized just because it looks so bloody wacky.
