Today during the Nintendo Direct No More Heroes III was announced for the Nintendo Switch. It’s been 10 years since the last numbered entry, so I for one am very excited by this. This one will be a Nintendo Switch exclusive when it launches in 2020.
Featuring Robin Atkin Downes and Paula Tiso reprising their roles as Travis Touchdown and Sylvia Christel, original series character designer Yusuke Kozaki and a new score by lead composer Nobuaki Kaneko
Tokyo – June 11, 2019 – Grasshopper Manufacture has announced a 2020 release date for No More Heroes III, a brand new entry in the No More Heroes franchise exclusive to the Nintendo Switch, during Nintendo’s E3 2019 Nintendo Direct video presentation. Taking place ten years after the original No More Heroes, No More Heroes III follows Travis Touchdown as he returns to his former home of Santa Destroy. There he encounters a huge artificial metropolis floating in the sea, and a mysterious flying object high above the city. What crazy dangerous assassins will he have to face in this strange new world?
”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!”
In addition to Robin Atkin Downes and Paula Tiso returning to their roles as Travis Touchdown and Sylvia Christel, No More Heroes III features an all-new original score composed by musician and actor Nobuaki Kaneko of the band RIZE.
No More Heroes III is scheduled for an exclusive Nintendo Switch release in 2020. Please stay tuned for more information.
