During MomoCon 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia, Grasshopper Manufacture announced that they will be bringing the former Switch-exclusive Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes to both PC and PS4. The game is an action-adventure hack-and-slash game that released on Nintendo Switch on January 18, 2019. Details on the game, such as the release date, were not revealed. Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is a spinoff title to the No More Heroes franchise.
Directed by Goichi Suda, also known as Suda51, the No More Heroes franchise was first introduced on the Nintendo Wii when it released in 2007 in Japan and 2008 in North America. The game was one of the few games that featured good use of the Wiimote’s motion functions, though it’s not something I would play in the open entirely. Later in 2010, a sequel was released, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, exclusively on the Nintendo Wii. Later that year, the first game was ported to the PS3 and Xbox 360 as No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise with only the PS3 version coming to the west by Konami. Both versions could be played with a regular controller.
The series introduces us to Travis Touchdown, a stereotypical otaku who has a huge collection of professional wrestling and anime merchandise. After winning a beam katana in an internet auction, he runs out of money to buy video games and wrestling videos. He is given a job by Sylvia Christel to kill Helter Skelter, also known as “the Drifter,” earning him rank 11 by the United Assassins Association, a governing body of assassins, for succeeding. He then realizes that he has the opportunity to make it to the top and sets out to secure himself the coveted position of number one assassin in the UAA.
