The art of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle is an action-adventure hack and slash videogame released for the Wii videogame system. It was developed by producer Suda51 from Grasshoper Entertainment and published by Ubisoft and Rising Star Games as a sequel to the first installment of the franchise. The story revolves around Travis Touchdown, who used to be the best assassin in the world, and is now confronted with a revenge plot schemed against him.
The art direction of the game reflects the over the top eccentric nature of the gameplay and story. Travis’ design is extremely influenced by american culture (i.e the name touchdown) and shines in contrast with the japanese more line-based graphic style. Western and eastern styles work toghether to deliver and incredibly unique visual style.
