Are you a fan of No More Heroes? Well, the new game that isn’t a direct sequel to No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle but stands as a “fresh start” for the character Travis Touchdown will release on January 18th, 2019. Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is currently in development for the Nintendo Switch.
New gameplay footage also accompanies the latest release date of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, meaning that fans only need to wait until Q1 2019 to get a hold of the forthcoming “raucous 3D action title.”
Moreover, Travis Strikes Again sees the protagonist Mr. Touchdown wielding the Beam Katana once more to massacre his way through countless enemies, taking on ferocious bosses in an “epic battle” with the father of Badgirl.
In addition to the story of Travis Strikes Again, the game is set in the remote countryside of the southern U.S., where seven years have passed since the events of No More Heroes. Badman has come to get his revenge on Travis for the murder of his daughter — Badgirl.
As the two settle scores once and for all, they’re sucked inside the “phantom game console” named Death Drive MK-II. This machine developed by Doctor Juvenile is said to grant the wishes of whoever collects and beats all six of its games.
