Big robo on the way!!!!!!!

Rising Star Games has announced that they're lining up Grasshopper Manufacture's No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle for an Old World release on May 28. That's smack-dab in between Sin and Punishment: Successor of the Skies' early May release and Super Mario Galaxy 2's early June date.

Desperate Struggle takes place three years after Travis Touchdown became the top assassin in the United Assassins Association and walked away from it all. After his best friend is murdered, Travis rejoins the UAA on a path for revenge.

Rising Star is absolutely giddy about the release, if managing director Martin Defries is anything to go by:

We're really excited to announce the official European release date No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle. The original became a cult hit on the Wii when it released four years ago and the sequel is set to attract an army of new followers. The inclusion of blood also means No More Heroes 2 will be available in Europe the way the legendary Suda51 intended.

We thought Desperate Struggle was absolutely excellent when it released in February in North America, awarding it a well-deserved 9/10.

Start pinching those pennies.
