    Earlier this year at the Switch unveiling, Suda51 said that Travis from the No More Heroes franchise will make a return at some point in the future. The recent Nindie Showcase brought us a trailer that confirms "Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes" as a Switch exclusive with a release date sometime in 2018. The story apparently will be about Bad Girl's father trying to kill Travis while they get absorbed by a video game console. As usual for a No More Heroes game, you can expect plenty of crazy over the top shit and a slice of moe.

    Apparently, the setting is going be in a game console. Which means, they can literally bring back anyone. Even people that are deader than dead. Which means no one can actually die. Unless dying in the game means you die in real life.

    Anyway, I can see why he chose such a strange setting. Not that their world is that realistic, but now they can take the weirdness even farther.

    Why it's called "Travis Strikes Back" if his name is Travis Touchdown?

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one getting PTSD flashbacks when I heard that bass riff from Hotline Miami. I was getting all twitchy and jittery just thinking about it.

    Guys, Travis looks incredible. I have always wanted a red leather jacket like his... with the tiger skin on the back.

    And here I thought I couldn't be disappointed. So no story progression?

    And it's "Bad Girl", not "Bat Girl".

    No lie, this game is basically what would compel me to actually buy the switch. Assuming one could actually find them by the time this releases.

    I hope there is a switch xl or something similar by the time I do pick this up. The standard joy cons are too tiny for me.

    Due to the motion controls being a bit more of a focus again, I hope we can dual wield any weapons and maybe even charge them separately.

    Glad to see this an several other games that were either console exclusive or switch exclusive. And I'm also really glad to see the continued support from indie devs. If this keeps up I'm absolutely positive AAA third party devs will start to really hop on board. I believe they are mostly sitting back for now due to the bad taste the wii u left, but hopefully the continued support will coerce them into joining as well.

    Tokyo, Japan, September 1st, 2017, Grasshopper Manufacture, an award-winning Japanese developer of videogames is delighted to announce the return of Travis Touchdown in Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, due for release for Nintendo Switch in 2018.


    Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is a raucous 3D action title, where Travis touchdown wields the Beam Katana to massacre his way through countless enemies, taking on ferocious bosses in an epic battle with Badman. This marks the first time in ten years that SUDA51 has taken on the mantle of director.


    “We’ve received a tremendous amount of support from our fans over the years, and we are delighted to finally share Travis Touchdown’s next great adventure with fans of Nintendo Switch,” said Goichi “SUDA51” Suda, founder of Grasshopper Manufacture. “We’re ecstatic to be expanding the No More Heroes universe in 2018, and we can’t wait to share more information with you in the coming months.”


    Set in the remote countryside of the southern US, one year has passed since the events of No More Heroes. Badman has come to exact his revenge on Travis for the murder of his daughter, Badgirl. As the two foes are battling it out, they’re sucked inside the phantom game console ‘Death Drive MK-II’, a machine developed by Doctor Juvenile. It is said that whomever collects and beats all six of its games will have their wishes granted.
