Rising Star Games has announced that it will publish No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, exclusively for Wii, across Europe at the end of April.

No More Heroes 2 follows Travis Touchdown who now finds himself the 51st ranked assassin - placed at the bottom of the UAA (United Assassins Association) table. He has to fight his way back to the top, while seeking revenge for the murder of his best friend.

"The first No More Heroes game fast built a reputation as a benchmark in the Wii's capabilities, and was brave and bold enough to stand out from the crowd as an antidote to the glut of party games on the market for the console," said Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. "It was one of the few games on the Wii that truly deserved the undivided attention of gamers across all formats and No More Heroes 2 promises to take this to the next level."

We thought the first game was a fun hack 'n' slash, but suffered from boring open-world sections. Reviews in the US and Japan suggest the sequel is much improved.
