No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again headed to Switch as exclusive
No More Heroes is getting a new release, and it's going exclusive. No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again was officially revealed today with an announcement trailer during Nintendo's Nindies Showcase.
Revealed in conjunction with No More Heroes' 10th anniversary, Travis Strikes Again takes place seven years after the first game. This time around, protagonist Travis Touchdown is sucked into a phantom game console where he'll be forced to play through six different games and beat their bosses. The trailer shows off gameplay footage from Devolver Digital's Hotline Miami during Travis' confrontation with The Bat, hinting that the two characters may be dropped into the game's world.
Directed by iconic developer Goichi Suda, better known as Suda51, No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again is being developed in collaboration with indie developers in an attempt to create a game that will "become the singularity between indies and the Nintendo Switch," according to the Nintendo Switch's January 2017 announcement presentation. Back in January, Suda51 also said that Travis would be "co-starring with an indie star," although it remains unclear who that will be as of yet.
Travis Strikes Again is being developed by Grasshopper Manufacture in Unreal Engine 4, with Marvelous Inc. publishing, and animation studio Shigorumi collaborating on the title. The game is slated for a 2018 release, although no official price or release date has been announced yet.
