Travis Touchdown’s latest adventure comes from Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture, and No More Heroes 3 has been a Switch exclusive since its release. But as of today, that’s all changed, as Xseed announced it’s bringing NMH3 to more platforms this fall.
According to a tweet from Xseed Games, no more Heroes 3 will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The image embedded in the announcement shows the console version of the Collector’s Edition. These expansions include a CD labeled No More Heroes 3’s “Music Collection,” a Santa Destroy “MOE~” makeup license plate, and an art book.

I had the pleasure of reviewing the Switch version of No More Heroes 3, and while I enjoyed the combat and a lot of humor, the open-world performance, resolution, and overall monotony detracted from the experience. Here’s hoping the game will benefit a lot as it transitions to more powerful hardware, perhaps even adding some extra knobs for the PC crowd. I give No More Heroes 3 a 7.75 out of 10 game informer scale. If you dig deeper into NMH3, here’s an excerpt that will give you an idea of what’s in store:
No More Heroes 3 bleeds style, is full of fun references, and has incredible fun in being weird and showing off. In the opening scene, the crew’s scenery changes in dramatic and violent ways. In addition, I counted no fewer than four title cards during that time, and one of them stayed on screen longer than any of them in memory. A few days later, I still scoff at parts of the game’s presentation. Suda and his team at Grasshopper effortlessly added sound and visual effects to the UI, menus, and cutscenes reminiscent of countless retro games. Few, if any, references feel stale. They’re all part of the game’s DNA.
