Is the RPG from that countdown in it this week or do we have to wait for the countdown to end to see what it is?

I really really really doubt this is only for Japan. Like really.

Well it was announced in famitsu which means it is japan only with no upgrades and is being ported by mmv against suda's wishes

What spinning, exactly?
I'd love more No More Heroes.
But let's take the facts.

1. We didn't know about this until this week, meaning it's obviously not Grasshopper making it, since they'd announce it in a similar way they announced NMH2.
2. It's only announced for Japan, and no info is given.
3. Grasshopper is already overloaded with NMH2 and their EA game. They don't have the money or manpower to do much with this game if they are making it.

Apparently from someone who has the issue, taking it with a grain of salt until scans is probably best:

Lufia
-February 25 release, 5,890 Yen
-Developed by Neverland

NMH
-Advance Mode added
-Japanese dubbing added (Nakano, Daizuka, Kurota, Konishi, Takanori? don't know Japanese VAs, will look it up in a sec)
-Erotic Portrait added
-February 25, 5,800 Yen

None of those are facts. They are merely YOUR speculation based on extremely limited information.

If this is true, then it likely won't see release here.

It seems that it is aimed more so at the Japanese market.

Man, that EROTIC PORTRAIT better be of Travis or I'm not double-dipping!

Actually, no, not even that is worth it... =\

Man, I love me some NMH. Interested to see what this turns out to be. I don't quite know what I'd want it to be either - I'm not sure an HD full graphical showcase would quite be in the spirit of NMH but I'm sure we could get a really cool style out of 360 / PS3.

Eye of Judgment: Wizard's Orcacle[Google translation] for PSP.

Also, kinda disappointing to hear NMH PS3 is launching in February - that's before the motion wands hit. Hopefully they have some sort of support for that.

Is it a port with added modes?

Given how bad the first NMH sold who do they think will buy a full-priced port 2 years later?

These facts along with the fact that the game's Japanese release was announced in a Japanese magazine make obviously clear the fact that this is intended for a Japanese audience only.

Ubisoft would have to be crazy to release this in the US given the game's heavy Japanese focus and the performance of action games on the PS360.

If what was posted was true, then it's likely it won't see a western release/it was intended for the Japanese audience.

I'm just sad it's probably a port.

edit: In fact, considering No More Heroes 2 doesn't have a release date in Japan, this move is likely being made to help establish the franchise and subsequently improve potential sales for the sequel.

The answer to both questions is different demographics/userbases. NMH 2 is coming because of the western userbases while the port is coming in hopes of tapping into the PS3/360 userbase.

Regardless, it's obvious this port is being made to try and expand the Japanese audience, and only the Japanese audience.

Why would it likely not see a western release? It may or may not come at this point. There doesn't seem to be much to suggest that it won't come.

While I'm not necessarily disagreeing with your conclusion, how does announcing a game in a Japanese magazine mean it's for Japan only? Demon's Souls, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Sengoku Basara 3, and tons of other games that come out on both sides of the ocean are announced every week in Famitsu.
He was making fun of AceBandage

I'm really looking forward to more info on the 360/PS3 NMH. The original was awesome on Wii so I might double dip for some bonus content and touched up graphics. Hope they make it PS Wand compatible.

Phoenix Wright just being a port is disappointing but I'm a complete sucker for the series and will be downloading it again anyway.

No more heroes on a nexgen system... The question is really- will it simply be the first game in HD at 60 fps with Natal/wand support ? Or will it apply the motion controls to the analog sticks?

(wouldn't be that hard really, wrestling moves would simply use both sticks in the same way the wiimote/nunchaku worked togethor on the wii and the sword would be 360 analog movement, perhaps pushing the R3/L3 buttons inward would take the place of pressing A during certain attacks? I think it could work)

Either way I'm looking forward to seeing what it entails. Loved the first one.

Reread what was posted:

NMH
-Advance Mode added
-Japanese dubbing added (Nakano, Daizuka, Kurota, Konishi, Takanori? don't know Japanese VAs, will look it up in a sec)
-Erotic Portrait added
-February 25, 5,800 Yen

"Added" as well as dubbing being key.

Not at all. I'm having a great laugh at the righteously oblivious self-parody of the Wiicentric gamer.
I think we can agree with one thing all of us.

It will be a spectacular failure. I can just read the posts now. "Why would I want an old Wii cast off?"

or "Why are you massaging my thigh Monkey?"

Wait, what?

Neverland doesn't make anything except action RPGs anymore. The last non-action RPG they made was 2003. Everything since then has been action RPGs, whether Rune Factory or Shining Force. It's disappointing but I guess that's the direction they want to go. :/
