Suda51 has finally announced the third entry in his cult classic No More Heroes franchise, No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again. The game was announced for the Nintendo Switch- but is it necessarily a Nintendo Switch exclusive? As this generation has taught us, we should never just assume that with third party games.
Speaking to DualShockers, however, Goichi Suda confirmed that the game is intended to be Nintendo Switch exclusive for now- and that it may even remain so for good. When asked about Switch exclusivity, he first said ‘yes’ straight away, before changing his answer to a more measured ‘maybe’.
This seems to imply that exclusivity will depend on how well the game does on the Switch. Historically, the series has been associated with Nintendo systems- No More Heroes was a Wii exclusive, but it was later ported to PS3 and Xbox 360. On the other hand, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle remained a Wii exclusive. The fate of Travis Strikes Back will be interesting to observe.
