We found out on Wednesday that Nintendo Switch owners will be getting a brand new entry in the beloved No More Heroes franchise, No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again. The game, developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and Suda51, launches on Nintendo’s latest platform in 2018. Shovel Knight will appear as the second collaboration alongside Hotline Miami. Here’s an overview of the highly anticipated game.
“Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is a raucous 3D action title, where Travis touchdown wields the Beam Katana to massacre his way through countless enemies, taking on ferocious bosses in an epic battle with Badman. This marks the first time in ten years that Goichi “Suda51” Suda has taken on the mantle of director.”
“We’ve received a tremendous amount of support from our fans over the years, and we are delighted to finally share Travis Touchdown’s next great adventure with fans of Nintendo Switch,” said Goichi “Suda51” Suda, founder of Grasshopper Manufacture. “We’re ecstatic to be expanding the No More Heroes universe in 2018, and we can’t wait to share more information with you in the coming months.”
“Set in the remote countryside of the southern US, seven years has passed since the events of No More Heroes. Badman has come to exact his revenge on Travis for the murder of his daughter, Badgirl. As the two foes are battling it out, they’re sucked inside the phantom game console ‘Death Drive MK-II’, a machine developed by Doctor Juvenile. It is said that whomever collects and beats all six of its games will have their wishes granted.”
