In perhaps the biggest thing now — and certainly the largest announcment/reveal during Nintendo’s “Nindies” Sumer Showcase — Grasshopper Manufacture declared the newest and next game in the treasured No More Heroes franchise, dubbed No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Back.
That was the greatest news, but the very surprising news is that the newest Goichi “Suda51” Suda directed title will strike this past year exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.
Being constructed to seem better than ever in Unreal Engine 4, No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Back will notably feature a selection of indie developers who will be working on the job. Said developers have never been revealed, but also the game’s introduction trailer does tease a crossover using Hotline Miami, the popular 2012 top-down shooter from Jonatan Söderström and Dennis Wedin.
In terms of details about the game itself, not much has been shown beyond some story information. No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Back is especially established seven years after the events of No More Heroes, and The Bad has returned to get some sweet revenge on Travis Touchdown because of the murder of his daughter, suitably called Bad Girl. The two soon find themselves sucked into a phantom game console called the Death Drive Mark II. And if you played with No More Heroes you will learn how the rest goes (you are going to need to battle your way out of all six games and defeat their individual supervisors).
All of that being said the first batch of official artwork for the game was released. You may check it all out via the gallery under. As you would anticipate, the artwork shows off some over-the-top, stylistic design, along with a great deal of personality and charm (pictures courtesy of Nintendo Everything).
