Publisher Xseed Games announces It’s bringing No More Heroes 3 to PC and current-gen consoles this fall. Xseed has previously released PC ports of the first two No More Heroes games.
This offbeat 3D action series started its life on the Wii and is arguably the most famous work of Grasshopper Manufacture and its eccentric protagonist, Suda 51. No More Heroes plays Travis Touchdown, a nerd who hates humans, as he strives to become the world’s greatest assassin with the help of a laser sword he gets from the internet. Known for its ridiculous sense of humor, the series includes a 15-year commitment to getting Travis (played by MGSV’s Robin Atkin Downes) by finding a toilet and throwing A draw to save the game. At the very least, you have to honor Grasshopper’s promise.
No More Heroes combines fast-paced character action gameplay with exploration and mini-games in a small, dense open world.Like Shenmue and its infamous forklift mini-game, Travis has to make money between missions by taking on trivial tasks like this one mowing the lawn. After all, professional assassins are always struggling.
No More Heroes 3, like the other quirky Japanese cult hit Deadly Premonition 2, started out as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, and both seem to be struggling with the platform’s hardware limitations. Wish No More Heroes 3 had more room to stretch on PC.
