After the unusual indie sideshow of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, fans of the hack and slash action adventure game will be delighted to see Travis Touchdown getting a full-blooded sequel on Nintendo Switch. It will be coming out in 2020 exclusively for the Switch.
No More Heroes 3 returns Travis to his home town of Santa Destroy, where he finds a huge artificial metropolis floating in the sea and unidentified flying objects above. Robin Atkin Downes and Paula Tiso are both to their roles as Travis Touchdown and Sylvia Christel, while the soundtrack will be provided by musician and actor Nobuaki Kaneko of the band RIZE.
Suda51 said, “”After the Nintendo Switch unveiling conference in 2017, we released Travis Strikes Again this year, and now we are finally able to make the dream of No More Heroes III a reality. We’re working hard on development day in and day out to ensure that NMHIII goes above and beyond the expectations of all the fans who have been waiting for the game for so long, and we’re going to be rolling it out in 2020. May the Switch be with you!”
Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes was a weird and wonderful dip into Suda51’s mind, when it released at the start of this year. As Miguel wrote in our 8/10 review, “If you love No More Heroes, or any work of Suda51’s, then Travis Strikes Again is a must-play game. It’s a creative explosion of fanservice, callbacks and classic Travis Touchdown charm that will make any fan grin from ear to ear. […] Travis Strikes Again is a love letter to gaming, and the perfect way to whet fans appetites before No More Heroes 3 gets made proper.”
