A livestream featuring brand new footage from No More Heroes 3 is scheduled to air in the coming days.
The live broadcast will take place on April 8th at 5 am PST and will air on YouTube. The event will be hosted by the game’s director Goichi Suda, also known as Suda51, as well as radio personality Mafia Kajita who will act as the events MC, and Shishiro Votan of Vtuber “Hololive” fame.
The stream will cover a look back on the series history and offer new details into No More Heroes 3 and its progress. From what little has been shown of the game’s story, it’s known that the game will take place sometime nine years after the events of No More Heroes 2 and two years after the events of Travis Strikes Back. The game will introduce alien invaders as a prominent threat.
February’s Nintendo Direct showed the most substantial bit of gameplay footage yet seen for the upcoming title. While not much was shown, what was revealed was new features such as an improved “deathblow” which gives you access to a variety of skills that you can customize and upgrade before going into combat. The footage also showcased the return of the mundane odd jobs and chores you must partake in to earn money before taking on the next boss encounter. Some of these minigames include mowing, mining, and picking up trash.
Beyond that, very little has been shown for the game. The title was originally planned to be released last year, but was delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which has severely hurt game development. The title is now currently scheduled to be released on August 27th of this year exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
Personally speaking, I don’t have too much experience with the No More Heroes series, but I’ve always been intrigued to give it a shot. Luckily, the first two titles are readily available to check out thanks to a recent re-release of both titles. A limited physical release of these first two installments is also currently available for pre-order at the time of this writing.
