    The Nintendo degenerate is finally back. Suda is gonna write and direct this bitch and apparently the game will have a bunch of guest artists since he was asked from artists from all over the world if they could design characters for NMH.

    A few years back, Suda51 teased that he'd make a No More Heroes 3 on "the next nintendo console". That didn't work out so well for the WiiU but he did show a small art piece with Shinobu in it. He also confirmed that he was done with Travis's story.



    NMH2 was definitely stretching at points plus he already banged Sylvia so he covered all ends but it's been years since Suda said that and considering how he announced this game, he'll probably be back in the spotlight.

    Or Suda will outSuda himself and kill Travis on the first level.

    I'll be jumping the gun for now. If Travis is the main character, it might be a completely new game series, true.

    Or it could be something stupid like when they did "Resident Evil: Code Veronica" instead of "Resident Evil 4." Or how "Dragon Age: Inquisition" was technically DA3 or whatever. Probably just being coy.

    Played better, more weapon variety, removed that stupid pointless open world and the bosses were more interesting mechanically.

    It shat the bed with characterization since the heroes were bland as hell, with one or 2 exceptions- Shinobu and Henry's sections were so short they're pointless and the last boss was retarded but the only thing terrible is that opinion of yours.

    the 8-bit style minigames to level up between missions ruined it. not only were they grindy, that would have been fine on its own, but all the minigames were unfun shit fests

    but its fine if you liked that

    The sound mixing is all fucked up so you can barely hear the characters which kinda killed the impact but the trailer is pretty metal too. Seems it takes the story' video game theme even further than 1. Travis and Badguy (Badgirl's father) are sucked into a Death Drive II and apparently the game itself is going to based on 6 indie games, all of them through direct collaborations with Grasshoper. Hotline Miami and Shovel Knight are already confirmed with 4 more coming.

    Travis will use Power Glove as a secondary weapon. Really.

    Fucking weird concept but it feels like Suda51 is getting those weird juices flowing. I like it, although I want to see some gameplay.

    From a Gamexplain interview:

    - It's the first game Suda51 is directing in ten years since No More Heroes. He's gotten back on directing because he want to return to Grasshopper roots, when they had a much smaller scale, something more compact and having an impact on everything.

    - The reason it's on Nintendo Switch is because Suda51 liked what he saw when it was still the NX, and in top of that, it was a matter of timing as Let it Die was released and there was that new hardware releasing soon.

    - About why it's not called No More Heroes 3 : while it's still a sequel, it's not a "direct" one as it will be the start of a new adventure for Travis, something different from the previous games. That's why they put Travis Strikes Again as the main title.

    - The main inspiration for the gimmick about visiting game worlds were Let it Die and the movie eXistenZ.

    - Gameplay : sword-based action game, similar to the first two games, and while the concept and controls will stay the same amongst the six games Travis will visit, each of them will have its own vibe, will be different about how they look and feel.

    - The collaboration with the indies aren't necessarily about the levels themselves (he was answering about if there was going to be a Shovel Knight level in the game) or the gameplay. What they wanted to show was that Travis is a hardcore gamer. So Travis won't necessarily play these indie games or fight the characters, but Travis will have different t-shirts featuring these games for example and Shovel Knight is one of them. However plans aren't concrete and there may be instances where Travis interact with the indie games, like Hotline Miami.

    - The development team is much smaller this time compared to No More Heroes 2. He was asked about if the retro mini games from NMH2 would return, and he answered that he's not sure if they have the manpower to make them, because everyone concerned want to make new stuff for the game.

    - They were successful in finding a lot of indie partners at PAX who were willing to do some collaborations. It helps that a lot of these people played past Suda51 games.

    - Motion controls will be in the game, but the main feature is that you'll be able to play the whole game with one joy-con. That was decided very early in the development process to give the player a limited area of control.

    - You'll be able to recharge the beam katana just like in the previous games, but the size has got a bit smaller (lol)

    - One of the reason he decided to make the whole game playable with one joy-con is that he hopes Sakurai will finally let Travis join Smash Bros.

    - He was asked if there could be co-op since you can play with only one joy-con, and answered that he can't talk about that secret yet.

    - About what he plans for the future, he want to makes sure this time that Travis's story won't stop just with this title, to make Travis some sort of video games superstar. That's why they don't call it No More Heroes 3, because he want to start from here and expand the serie.

    It's a totally different spin since they want to make it look indie while collaborating with indie devs.

    Considering that the main gameplay shtick is basically Furi. I can dig it. They already confirmed a visual novel level, that should be fun.

    No matter what they do, it can't possibly be anywhere as bad as NMH2 at least. :catsun

    I didn't know they were going for a mult-genre game, so I was kinda disappointed in that regard. Could be cool, though.

    Am I the only one who thought this series was pretty low key dark in how the main lead treated killing and up to this point never really had any serious consequences from it. On a natural level No More Heroes should be a tragic drama not a DMC based shonenesqe fantasy.
