This has been announced by publisher Xseed Games it brings No More Heroes 3 to PC and current generation consoles this fall. Xseed has previously released PC ports for the first two No More Heroes games.
The offbeat 3D action series began its life on the Wii and is without a doubt Grasshopper Manufacture and its eccentric lead role, Suda 51’s most famous work. No More Heroes has the misanthropic idiot Travis Touchdown in the lead role as he strives to become the world’s greatest assassin using a laser sword he got from the internet. The series has been defined by its absurd sense of humor, including a now 15-year commitment to get Travis (played to the bottom by Robin Atkin Downes of MGSV fame) to save the game by finding a toilet and dropping a toe. You must at least respect Grasshopper’s commitment to the piece.
No More Heroes combines fast-paced character action gameplay with exploration and mini-games in small but dense open worlds. Travis, who talks about Shenmue and its infamous forklift mini-games, has to make money between missions by taking on small tasks like mowing the lawn. Professional assassins are always on the move.
No More Heroes 3 was, like other whimsical Japanese cult hit Deadly Premonition 2, originally an exclusive Nintendo Switch, and both games seem to have struggled with the platform’s hardware limitations. Hopefully No More Heroes 3 will have more room to stretch its legs on PC.
