Now Playing: Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes - 16 Minutes of Co-op Gameplay | PAX West 2018

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

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.

We're covering PAX West 2018 from all angles, so be sure to check with GameSpot as the show goes on this weekend. In the meantime, see Supergiant Games' classic hits Bastion and Transistor in action on Nintendo Switch, or watch four-player mayhem in Samurai Gunn 2 gameplay.

Absolutely horrid video player. It auto plays when I don't want to watch a video & won't play beyond the ad when I want to see a video, with no option to pop out to YouTube or something that will actually play the video reliably.

That's the game? It looks terrible and cheap, I thought it was a sequel, but it's nothing like the others. The switch is a barren wasteland when it comes to exclusives besides Mario and Zelda.
