Physical Copies No More Heroes & No More Heroes 2 Available for Pre-order

While No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2 have been related on the Nintendo Switch since October last year, that’s just on the eShop, leaving many physical collectors with an empty space on their shelf.

Thankfully Limited Run Games will be doing just that! Both games have pre-orders up for regular versions of the games and for Collector’s Editions.


No More Heroes

Fight your way to the top in the HD remaster of everyone’s favorite assassin action game!

After being ranked #11 in the United Assassins Association, Travis Touchdown puts his trusty beam katana to the test as he faces off against the world’s top 10 assassins in deadly battle.

It’s a long way to the top, but this all-American otaku won’t stop until he’s the #1 assassin, baby!

• Burn rubber through the coastal city of Santa Destroy on Travis’ motorbike, the Schpeltiger!

• Unlock a devastating arsenal of pro-wrestling moves—from Power Bombs to Brain Busters.

• Unleash the powerful Dark Side to mow down the competition and show ’em who’s boss!

The Collector’s Edition includes:

No More Heroes 2

Continue the fight in the HD remaster of the sequel to the original assassin action game!

Three years after Travis Touchdown was ranked #1 by the United Assassins Association, he finds himself falling down the ranks to #51. To make things worse, another assassin—Skelter Helter—swears revenge against Travis for the death of his brother.

Fueled by his own desires and a thirst for vengeance, the ultimate otaku assassin unsheathes his beam katana once again and plunges headfirst into an all-new battle!

• Dual-wield beam katanas as Travis Touchdown to dial the hack-and-slash insanity up to 11!

• Jump through combat as the agile Shinobu or leave foes in the dust as Travis’ brother, Henry.

• Experience a blast from the past by playing 8-bit minigames to earn money and power up!

The Collector’s Edition includes:

Game Boy: The Box Art Collection Pre-Orders Open On Sept. 28th.

Whether you’re an old-school Game Boy fan or discovering the wonders of Nintendo’s million-selling portable system for the very first time, Game Boy: The Box Art Collection is the book for you – it’s a vibrant celebration of some of the finest cover artwork for this monochrome marvel, which kick-started the handheld games industry.

Despite the fact that we live in a world where the average smartphone makes the Game Boy look like an abacus, in purely technical terms, Nintendo’s trailblazing handheld still manages to capture the attention of gamers all over the world – and flicking through these pages, it’s easy to see why. It’s home to some of the most famous names in the videogame business, such as Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Mega Man, Castlevania, Gradius and Final Fantasy, and many of its best titles hold up surprisingly well by modern standards – with technology this basic, developers of the period needed to make sure the gameplay was compelling and addictive.

We’ve worked closely with some of the world’s most renowned Game Boy collectors to pull together a varied selection of titles that spans both Western and Eastern tastes. We’ve tried to strike the right balance between the two, and we hope you’ll enjoy seeing some familiar pieces of art rubbing shoulders with covers for games you perhaps know from the dim and distant past, but have never before seen presented in the packaging shown here.

The other notable addition is the inclusion of screenshots on each page, giving you the opportunity to see what the games in question actually look like. As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve gone to the extra effort of professionally translating the titles of Japanese games into Romaji – something that, to our knowledge, has never been properly attempted before in any English-language book.

Additionally, Game Boy: The Box Art Collection includes a foreword by Gameboycameraman, a collector’s interview and an extensive feature on the history of the Game Boy.

At 372 pages long, Game Boy: The Box Art Collection also boasts a metallic silver textured cover with a metallic blue foil logo. As with all our books, we use thread sewn binding for extra durability and print lithographically on high-quality paper to showcase the gorgeous visuals as they deserve.

For the collectors out there, Game Boy: The Box Art Collection also comes in two special, limited run, never-to-be-repeated versions.

The ‘Silver Version’:

the book is housed within a sturdy metallic silver card box;

this box features an exclusive cover illustration designed by the one and only Wil Overton (Super Play, Rare);

this version is limited to 1,500 copies.

The ‘Gold Version’:

the book is housed within a sturdy metallic gold card box and features a holographic edition sticker;
