Grasshopper Manufacturer’s No More Heroes 3 briefly appeared at The Game Awards, starting off as an E.T. rip-off gone wrong. It was all a set-up for Travis Touchdown to appear and make his presence known. Thankfully, a longer trailer was released (though it’s just more about the mysterious alien being).
No More Heroes 3 is set two years after Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes and sees Travis back in his hometown. Unfortunately, it seems that aliens are invading and sending new assassins to take out the top rank. So in hindsight, the trailer does offer some reason as to the aliens’ visit.
No More Heroes 3 is in development for the Nintendo Switch and utilizes Unreal Engine 4. It will be releasing in 2020 so expect more details in the coming months. Whether it stays exclusive or not remains to be seen – Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes was made available for PS4 and PC after all. Stay tuned for more details and announcements from The Game Awards in the meantime.
