No Motion Plus for you

Despite designer Suda 51 expressing interest in implementing Motion Plus support for his awaited sequel No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle, it looks like that ain't happening any more. Instead, developer Grasshopper is opting for a more old-school approach.

1UP reports that instead of improved motion controls, Classic Controller support is getting implemented.

Officially, chalk that one up to the success of Capcom's Monster Hunter 3 Tri in Japan and the large amount of people that play with the pad; the game was even bundled with the Classic Controller Pro. Suda said that Grasshopper and Marvelous, the game's publisher in Japan, wanted Desperate Struggle to appeal to that crowd.

Unofficially? We've got a feeling it has to do with the series' expansion onto new platforms after this game.
