Suda51, the head of Grasshopper Studio and the creator of No More Heroes, was interviewed by Fandom, and we learned how No More Heroes 3 could become a reality.
„Nothing is set in stone yet, and of course it’ll depend on the success of Travis Strikes Again, but I am working on an outline for No More Heroes 3 – a proper direct sequel for the series – and it’s going to be connected to Travis Strikes Again in a big way, because, in No More Heroes 3, Travis is going to go up against crazier adversaries than he ever has before it’s going to be bloodier, more intense battles between assassins it’s going to be kind of like The Avengers – Thanos levels of crazy villains.
In order for Travis to stand a chance [against these powerful new foes] I wanted to give Travis the opportunity to enter these different game worlds [in Travis Strikes Again] and power up to learn some new skills and gain some more strength so that ultimately I can work to make Travis a more prominent character in video game history overall. The skill chips that you saw Travis collecting in Travis Strikes Again’s game world, I want Travis to take those with him to the next game, the next numbered instalment,” Goichi Suda said.
Travis Strikes Again thus cannot be called the proper third No More Heroes game. It will launch on January 18, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. Suda51 says we should buy the game so he can create the real third No More Heroes.
