No More Heroes and its sequel are coming to Steam next week

No More Heroes and its sequel No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle are coming to Steam on June 9, marking the first time the mainline series will appear on PC. This news comes directly from publisher Xseed Games, which released a set of trailers for the upcoming Steam releases.

No More Heroes (Steam) - Launch Date Announcement Trailer

The official announcement comes after the games both received ESRB ratings for Steam, as well as official Steam pages, telegraphing their announcement. For the Steam releases, players must use a controller, as keyboard and mouse isn’t supported. The original games were built with the Nintendo Wii’s motion controls in mind, so that’s a major change for the titles.

No More Heroes first came to the Wii in 2008 and follows protagonist Travis Touchdown, who is tasked with facing off against the top 10 killers of the United Assassins Association. It has fast-paced action, cel-shaded graphics, and a ton of style. It later came to Nintendo Switch and even Amazon Luna. A PS3 port called No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise launched in 2011.

Its sequel, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle came out in 2010 on the Nintendo Wii and takes place three years after the events of the first game. It later came to Nintendo Switch and Amazon Luna as well.

A third installment, No More Heroes III, is slated to be released for Nintendo Switch on August 27 and is one of the most anticipated games on the platform. It has been in the works for a long time but is nearing the end of its development cycle. The Steam launch opens the possibility that the game could come to other platforms down the line.

Overwatch 2 Junker Queen

The hero roster for Overwatch 2 is massive. Not only do you have the entire cast returning from the first game, but there will be three brand new heroes right at launch, plus even more scheduled to come in later seasons. Naturally, these new heroes will be the most appealing for anyone who has been playing the game for a long time and is looking for a new experience. Each of the three new heroes, Sojourn, Kiriko, and Junker Queen, fill one of the game's three roles of Damage, Support, and Tank.

Junker Queen is the new Tank class hero, which has been given a lot more importance in the meta with Overwatch 2. Now that the game has slimmed down the team sizes to just five-versus-five, with only one Tank allowed per team, whoever fills that role has a lot of responsibility on their shoulders. If you're picking Junker Queen, it would be wise to at least know a few tactics before launching into a competitive match where an entire team is depending on you. Here's a full Junker Queen guide to get you started.
