No More Heroes III is going to be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and S in Japan on October 6, and it’s going to be released on PlayStation4, PlayStation5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and Microsoft Windows Store in the West sometime this fall, though an exact date for that has not been given. Ahead of this, Marvelous Entertainment released a trailer that’s almost three minutes long.
XSEED gave this description for No More Heroes III.
“Being the ‘number-one assassin in the world’ isn’t what it used to be. Otaku hero Travis Touchdown is back once more, forced out of retirement to defend Santa Destroy, and Earth, in an intergalactic test of might while proving he’s more than just a washed up has-been who talks to his cat. Warm up those beam katanas, tighten the all-new Death Glove, and get ready to partake in outrageous boss battles against the evil Prince FU and his nine alien henchmen as Travis fights his way to the top of the Galactic Superhero Rankings!”
In the West, you can additionally get a Day 1 Edition, but only for the PlayStation and Xbox versions. If you get the Day 1 Edition, you’ll be provided with a 7″x4″ Santa Destroy biker license plate, a 70-page art book, the soundtrack on CD, plus a box with a brand-new illustration from Yūsuke Kozaki, the series artist.
The game had previously been released for Nintendo Switch in late summer 2021. The original No More Heroes game came out in 2007 and just for the Wii, though PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions were eventually offered as well. The next game in the series, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, came out in 2010, and was followed by Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes in 2019.
