Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Coming To PC and PS4
Charge your beam katana this October.
Though it has been more than half a year since Travis Touchdown returned in the Nintendo Switch exclusive Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, Travis strikes once again on PC and PlayStation 4 this fall. Publishers Marvelous Inc. and Xseed Games have announced that the hack-n-slash spinoff will receive a digital Complete Edition on October 17.
Pre-ordering Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Complete Edition on the PlayStation Store or Steam, which retails for $40 USD / $59 AUD / £33 GBP, nets you the game's two DLC packs. One pack is Black Dandelion, which includes Shinobu Jacobs as a playable character, two Shinobu skins, and six Badman adventure mode chapters. The other, Bubblegum Fatale, comes with Bad Girl as a playable character, two Bad Girl skins, a new Killer Marathon stage, and one Travis adventure mode chapter. You also get a bevy of additional in-game shirts with your purchase. Both packs are only accessible after you have completed the main story at least once. PS Plus members get 10 percent off for pre-ordering ahead of release. Steam pre-orders do not require a membership to receive 10 percent off.
Travis Strikes Again takes place seven years after No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, and sees Travis Touchdown team up with Badman in an arcade-style, top-down hack-n-slash romp. The game is a departure for the series but retains many of the core elements the franchise is known for, particularly the bold self-awareness and over-the-top action.
In our Travis Strikes Again review, we said, "Once you've sifted through the references and callbacks, you have a competent action game with some great ideas that are only halfway there. However, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes doesn't quite deliver on its potential, relying too heavily on repetitive encounters."
During E3 2019, Nintendo and game director Suda51 unveiled No More Heroes III. Not much is known about the game, but we do know the anticipated sequel is currently slated for a 2020 release on Nintendo Switch.
