E3 2019: Suda51 Teases No More Heroes Announcement
Wish upon a star.
The prolific director simply says, "go to E3" in his post on social media, with an accompanying image of what looks like a star comprised of wavelengths. A cracked red star has featured throughout No More Heroes, most notably in the logo for No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, so it doesn't take much to deduce what Suda51 is hinting at.
The last game in the series was Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, a spin-off for the Nintendo Switch. A PlayStation 4 and PC version of the game was recently announced so it's unlikely Suda51 is teasing that. We could possibly see DLC for Travis Strikes Back, or maybe Travis Touchdown is appearing in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Ideally, we're finally getting a full sequel in the shape of No More Heroes 3, but all of this is speculation at this point. We should, however, know for certain on June 12 when Suda51 is scheduled to appear during Twitch's E3 coverage.
We reviewed Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, with reviewer Michael Higham scoring it a 6 and saying, "Slashing through waves of deformed bugs and hardened brutes has its moments, highlighted by a seamless co-op system that makes jumping into the action a breeze, and the minimalist story presentation will draw you into the journey. However, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes doesn't quite deliver on its potential, relying too heavily on repetitive encounters. This is not the return of No More Heroes you'd hoped for, but it at least shows signs of a series that still has life in it". Any potential sequel will hopefully improve upon Grasshopper Manufacture's last output.
