Amazon has dropped a selection of Lightning Deals on us, and while we can't be 100% sure of the identities of all the mystery deals (and less sure of the prices) it looks like there's enough stuff in there that you'll want to keep an Amazon window open, and an alarm clock set. Right now, F.E.A...

Amazon has already discounted Konami's PS3 release of No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise to $29.99, suplexing $10 off the retail price. For some reason, the retailer chose to forgo its usual credit offers, discounting the game directly. Heroes' Paradise hasn't even been released yet -- that happens...

During E3, Konami released the intro from the new PS3 version of No More Heroes as a trailer. Since the Wii original started off with the same trailer, we saw this as an opportunity to post a visual comparison between Heroes' Paradise and the original. Unfortunately, it turns out it's really h...

No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise was oddly placed (misplaced?) on a PlayStation 3 2011 "exclusives" list, and given a tentative release window by the US PlayStation blog: "fall 2011." Last we heard, the up-rezzed third-person brawler was heading to PlayStation 3s at some point in 2011, but now we k...

Konami has sent out five new screenshots of Heroes' Paradise, the Move-enhanced PS3 port of No More Heroes. We'd be frustrated about the gradual release of media, but we've already seen No More Heroes. Besides, these do a good job of showing off the visual improvements -- mostly shadows!...

To combat those losses, the company reduced its slate for fiscal 2011, a strategy that appears to have worked. In its last fiscal quarter (which ended June 30), Marvelous's d...

Siliconera points out a slide from the company's latest earnings report (Japanes...

We're not going to say that No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise is a hit, but those of us in constant fear of Marvelous running out of money can breathe a sigh of relief, as the remake has brought a little cash in (more considering that the game is a port and therefore probably less expensive to produc...

No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise was released in Japan last week, allowing the site PS360 to set to work comparing the new HD version (in this case the Xbox 360 release), ported by Feelplus, to the Wii original. After the break, you can see the intro to both versions, presented in split-screen. We s...
