Switch Exclusive Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Release Date Announced
Some more heroes.
The next game from developer Suda51 (Goichi Suda) and Grasshopper Manufacture, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, has an official release date. It'll be launching exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on January 18, 2019. Travis Strikes Again is a spin-off from the No More Heroes franchise with series protagonist Travis Touchdown still at the helm, but in a slightly different form.
Those familiar with No More Heroes will instantly recognize the game's crude humor and off-the-wall premise. This story takes place seven years after No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle and pits Travis in a sticky situation--Badman, father of Bad Girl (a boss from the first game), tries to avenge her death, but ends up getting himself and Travis stuck in a haunted game console called the Death Drive Mk-II. They then have to fight their way out of the Death Drive's six different games hack-and-slash style.
We had a chance to get our hands on Travis Strikes Again during Nintendo's PAX West showcase, and you can watch our gameplay in the video above. The game offers co-operative play with one player as Travis and the other as Badman; there are also unique co-op special attacks to pull off, which can be seen during the boss battle.
