No More Heroes

No More Heroes is an action-adventure hack and slash game from Grasshopper Manufacture and Marvelous USA. It was originally a Nintendo Wii title but was later ported to the Switch as well. Now, both the first game and its sequel are out on PC through Steam. This is a HD remaster, but the port itself is pretty basic and doesn’t even support for keyboard, and mouse. If you are running into any No More Heroes Controller issues, here is how you can fix those.

It is currently sitting at a Mostly Positive rating on Steam, mainly due to its lack of PC options. Even with the basic port quality, PC players can finally play this title, which was locked behind a console from 2007. It’s possible that both titles will eventually make their way to other consoles as well. Given how old the title is, it isn’t very demanding at all either.

Fixing the No More Heroes Controller Issues

A few users have reported that they can’t get the Dualshock 4, Xbox, or even Switch controller to work on the game. This is a shame because the game only supports controllers in the first place. However, it is easily fixable. To do this, follow the methods below.

Disable Steam Input

Make sure the game is closed before doing this.

  • Open Steam, and navigate to your library
