No More Heroes Xbox 360, PS3 Has No More Motion Control

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 port of No More Heroes won't take advantage of new motion control schemes for those respective platforms, according to Marvelous Entertainment head honcho Yasuhiro Wada, condemning Travis Touchdown to an analog stick controlled fate.

Wada tells Edge Online that No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise is getting the high-definition once over to "bring the game to a wider audience." To wit, Marvelous isn't "currently considering to use uncommon new technology" like Project Natal and Sony's still-unnamed(?) motion controller.

No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise is being reworked for a prettier, motion control-free release by Lost Odyssey and Ninety Nine Nights II developers Feelplus. Wada says that the new analog control scheme should "improve the sense of being in the game."

Should No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise find a new publisher and make it to these shores, rest assured, dear reader, that we'll spend ample time sensing the amount of improved being in the remake, holding Wada to his word.
