No More Heroes 3 is not the first studio to be experiencing delays due to the pandemic. Many games have been pushed back including Chivalry 2, Deathloop and Halo Infinite just to name a few. In the statement Suda also announced that Darick Roberston (The Boys) will be providing illustrations for the game. Suda also mentioned that he has “decided to focus on prioritizing quality” which led to the pushing back of the games release date.
No More Heroes 3 is a Nintendo Switch exclusive and was initially introduced in 2019 during Nintendo’s E3 Direct. The game is classified as a hack and slash action-adventure. It’s set ten years later and Travis must gear up to face some intense foes from outer space. Of course he wouldn’t be able to do so without his trusty beam katana! There hasn’t been much buzz about the game since it was announced.
