No More Heroes Dev Says Next Game Will Be “Like The Avengers”
Goichi Suda, otherwise known as Suda51, is an offbeat and highly creative developer of the No More Heroes video game series. With the most recent entry titled Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes launching in January 2019, Suda has already announced plans for the next game – No More Heroes 3. Although nothing is yet “set in stone,” an interview with Fandom says Suda anticipates some Avengers level chaos in terms of villains. He said:
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 TSA 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.”
Depending on the reception of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, fans might catch a glimpse of Travis traveling across various game worlds in order to gain power-ups and skills. Suda continued on by saying:
In order for Travis to stand a chance [against these powerful new foes] I wanted to give Travis the chance 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 installment.”
That would certainly be entertaining to play! With Suda’s creative style, chaotic foes seem like the perfect ingredient to add into the Suda51 recipe.
