Travis Touchdown seems to love the E3 stage. Following his 2017 appearance, Nintendo unveiled No More Heroes 3 at their recent E3 2019 conference and it is coming to the Switch.
It’s hard to pick a place to start with Nintendo’s E3 updates but No More Heroes has always stood out as something slightly different from the family-friendly firm’s plumbers and pocket pets. Following the exploits of Travis Touchdown, the No More Heroes franchise is an outrageous action adventure that follows Travis Touchdown as he survives an increasingly outlandish set of scenarios and assassinations. The inaugural title in the franchise launched back in 2007 on the WiiU and saw a recent spin-off titled No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again.
Now, No More Heroes 3 take’s the title’s hero back to his home town of Santa Destroy. On arrival, players will find a huge artificial metropolis floating in the sea and a mysterious flying object high above the city. From there, things go off the rails pretty quickly. Thankfully Travis is not the only one going back to his roots. No More Heroes 3 will see Robin Atkin Downes and Paula Tiso reprising their roles, while Suda51 will helm the project. Keeping things fresh, Nobuaki Kaneko of the band RIZE will bring his talents to the musical score while Yusuke Kozaki will helm character design this time around.
It’s no surprise that we are hyped for the release of this Switch exclusive. Even the great Suda51 seems at least a little hyped.
”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,” says director Goichi Suda, or Suda51. “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!”
No More Heroes 3 is due to take on the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2020. We aren’t expecting it to come to other consoles and you can keep up to date on the development over at the official developer website.
