Travis has his trusty beam katana in hand as he considers himself the last superhero and best assassin in this stylish action game. This time, there’s a giant hovering ship above Santa Destroy, and Travis, most likely, must figure out how to get rid of it. Travis does have access to and may be able to use what appears to be a suit of power armor as well.
In the press release for the game, Suda51 spoke on the announcement, “After the Nintendo Switch unveiling conference in 2017, we released Travis Strikes Again this year, and now we are finally able to make the dream of No More Heroes III a reality.”
We’re working hard on development day in and day out to ensure that NMHIII goes above and beyond the expectations of all the fans who have been waiting for the game for so long, and we’re going to be rolling it out in 2020. May the Switch be with you!
No More Heroes III is set to release at some point in 2020. You can check out the reveal trailer for No More Heroes III below:
