Suda51’s beloved action title could be coming over to Nintendo’s hybrid.
No More Heroes is primed to re-enter the spotlight in a big way with No More Heroes 3 scheduled for launch later this year, but before we step into the franchise’s future, we might be getting a chance to revisit its past one more time.
As spotted by Gematsu on Twitter, the first No More Heroes – which first launched on the Wii in 2008 (or 2007, if you were in Japan) – recently received an age rating for the Nintendo Switch in Taiwan. There’s been no official announcement of the game yet, but age ratings have often been an early source for news on upcoming releases before they’ve been officially confirmed.
Besides, with No More Heroes 3 in the pipeline, it’s not a stretch to imagine that Grasshopper Manufacture will want to get more people into its predecessors as well. In fact, this is something that director Suda51 said not too long ago was actually being discussed. That said, until we do hear something official, it’s best not to put too much stock in this… for now, at any rate.
Meanwhile, No More Heroes 3 is due out exclusively for the Switch in 2020, but doesn’t yet have a specific launch date.
