Hey Japanese readers! Do you have a smartphone? If it’s an Android device, you can download the newest game from Suda 51, No More Heroes: World Ranker, right now, for free! Got an iPhone? It’s comin’ soon, still free. It’s a “social game” which means there will be micro-transactions to keep the game going, but it’s not mandatory. Japanese friends! Pay them lots of money so this game spreads all around the world! Hit the jump for some details.
In NMH: World Ranker, you play as an assassin of your own creation. No sign of Travis Touchdown anywhere! You fight bosses from previous No More Heroes games and level up your character. According to Tumblr user reallybadfuture, the gameplay consists of tapping when a meter fills up, and swiping for counters. I swear, if you don’t shake your phone to charge your katana, I’m suing. There also seems to be a multiplayer mode.
The game runs on points, and once you run out of points, you can either buy more or wait a day. I also expect cosmetic stuff to be purchasable too.
