More No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle info. The game got an oh-so-brief teaser announce at last year's Tokyo Game Show. This week's Famitsu adds a few more details.

The game once again stars beam katana assassin Travis Touchdown and Japanese Ukrainian co-hort Sylvia Christel. There's a new character — a hip-hop killer named Nathan Copeland who is ranked 50th by the United Assassins Association. He carries a shape-shifting boom box.

In Desperate Struggle, Travis learns the art of dual beam katana wielding. Details are currently scant about how this translates into gameplay. Expect more details at E3 — hopefully!

Oh. One more thing. The game's developer, Grasshopper Manufacturer, appears to be taking applications for in-game t-shirt designs.

DISCUSSION

What does Grasshopper stand to lose by making this game multiplatform? Nothing. What do they stand to gain by keeping it a Wii exclusive? Also nothing.

I don't want to hear them bitching in 18 months when the game hasn't even moved 500,000 copies.
