The No More Heroes franchise is coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 gaming systems. “No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise” is a remake of the original 2007 game. For those without a Wii gaming system, the original “No More Heroes” and its sequel (“No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle”) definitely made them consider getting one.

The flamboyant main character of Travis Touchdown, pegged as the everyman turned into action hero, and his colorful journey to become the No. 1 ranked assassin made for an intriguing game character that became almost as iconic as “God of War’”s Kratos has become.

Unfortunately by now the title may have lost some of its pizzazz since the gaming world moves so fast. However with a unique and well-liked formula, it is quite possible that the game will receive an even larger following. To sweeten the pot, the new version contains bonuses the original did not.

As well as being in high-definition, “Heroes’ Paradise” has several things that make the game more enjoyable, such as the ability to retry assassination jobs, side missions and free fights as well as new side jobs. Making the game more controllable is the ability to store Dark Mode up to three charges instead of activating them automatically. Part of the “No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle” story is featured with five extra bosses who appeared in the sequel.

You can’t have everything, however, as it seems some levels are cut from the Wii version of the game. On the other hand, a lot more than bonus features differentiate the new “Heroes’ Paradise” from the original. The developers are now FeelPlus who are remaking most things from scratch, including graphics, as they convert it into a HD game. This involves a new look for the game, different from Grasshopper Manufacture’s version.

Though it is being released on two systems, there will actually be a difference between the PS3 and Xbox versions as the game will allow PlayStation users to utilize the PlayStation Move controller in order to power-up Travis’ beam katana and execute advanced combos similar to the Wii version.

“No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise” for PlayStation3 will be available Aug. 16.
