Suda-51 and Grasshopper Manufacture have proudly announced that No More Heroes III is in development for the Nintendo Switch. This is good news for fans of the series who were hoping it would come to fruition, because it was previously said that everything would depend on how well the recent spin-off, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, sold.
“In No More Heroes III, Travis is going to go up against crazier adversaries than he ever has before,” Suda added. “It’s going to be bloodier, more intense battles between assassins it’s going to be kind of like The Avengers– Thanos levels of crazy villains.
“In order for Travis to stand a chance [against these powerful new foes] I wanted to give Travis the chance to enter these different game worlds [in Travis Strikes Again] and power up to learn some new skills and gain some more strength so that ultimately I can work to make Travis a more prominent character in video game history overall. The skill chips that you saw Travis collecting in Travis Strikes Again’s game world, I want Travis to take those with him to the next game, the next numbered installment” stated Suda-51.
The game’s reveal trailer goes a far way in proving this to be true. As you’ll see above, it shows Travis as he has to once again go from slacker to hero, when an alien force invades his hometown.
No More Heroes III releases in 2020, and is now available for pre-order.
