XSEED Games has announced that No More Heroes 3 will be coming to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms in 2022, ending the Nintendo Switch exclusivity.
No More Heroes 3 will no longer be a Nintendo Switch exclusive in 2022, as XSEED Games has announced that the title will be coming to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms. This isn’t the first time Travis Touchdown has been a temporary guest on the Nintendo Switch, as the well-reviewed spin-off Travis Strikes Again made a variety debut in 2019, following its release on the Nintendo Switch.
The story of No More Heroes 3 involves a new enemy that Travis Touchdown faces in battle. This time, the assassins have been replaced by invading aliens, with the incredibly powerful Jess-Baptiste VI as their leader. Baptiste creates the galactic leaderboard and welcomes challengers from all over the Earth to join his crew. Travis must retire and overcome alien invaders to save the world. No More Heroes 3 launches on Nintendo Switch in August 2021 and was one of the major console exclusives that year.
When it first launched, No More Heroes 3 had positive reviews, but a common complaint was technical problems, as the game featured muddy visuals, low frame rates, and a city sparsely populated. The city of Santa Destroy will soon have a chance to thrive on a more powerful system, as XSEED Games announced on Twitter that No More Heroes 3 is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/ S in the fall of this year. If No More Heroes 3 has a year-long exclusive contract, that will expire at the end of August 2022, which is a potential release date for the game. There is a special edition of the game that will come with a soundtrack CD and a Santa Destroy license plate.
It’s a shame the Nintendo Switch is losing another exclusive feature, but this is a case where a game really needs additional hardware to be at its best. The No More Heroes franchise was born on the Nintendo system, but the Switch just couldn’t keep up with the latest installment in the series. No More Heroes 3 is a fast-paced action game with flashy visuals, both of which are hampered by the Switch’s hardware. The nature of any improvements to No More Heroes 3’s portals has yet to be revealed, but there’s a lot that can be done to improve the game.
No More Heroes 3 marks the end of the Travis Touchdown story and it ends with a bang. It has been confirmed that this is the final installment in the series, and a version of the game on modern systems could help the game fix the issues that have occurred with the Nintendo Switch version.
