Straight-up booting off the SD card is available: – easier downloads – larger expansions – quicker loads when bringing in song data from the SD card into GH5.

One of the new elements No More Heroes 2 will introduce is Travis’ ability to wield two beam katanas. Here’s a better (and unblurred) look at the katanas in action.
Publisher Marvelous Entertainment has sent out “new” No More Heroes 2 screenshots. “New” because most of them showed up in a May issue of Japanese game mag Famitsu.
May is not new — it’s an entire season ago. But those blurry magazine scans are blurry. The worst thing about blurry magazine scans? They’re blurry.
Have a better look at the dual beam katana action in No More Heroes 2. While hero Travis Touchdown carried a single beam katana in [...]
