Several years after his debut, part-time assassin/full-time otaku Travis Touchdown makes his formidable comeback to the Nintendo Wii, in what may be his last No More Heroes title to ever grace the platform. Developed by Grasshopper Manufacture, under the direction of Goichi Suda (aka Suda51), No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle brings back everything we've come to know from the original hack-and-slasher, and removes (almost) all the needless tedium that stained its pacing. Desperate Struggle is a fine example of how to properly handle a sequel, without having to enrage fanatics and at the same time, draw some newer ones.
