No More Heroes 3 Releases in 2021, No More Heroes 1 and 2 on Switch Now

No More Heroes 3 releases next year, but XSeed fills the gap by bringing the first two games to the Switch.

Nintendo shadow dropped another Nintendo Mini-Direct Partner Showcase and packed it full of No More Heroes news.

Following a delay earlier in 2020, No More Heroes 3 releases in 2021 on Nintendo Switch, but if that's too long to wait for more Travis Touchdown, No More Heroes 1 and No More Heroes 2 are available on Nintendo Switch now.

No More Heroes 3 puts a twist on the usual formula. Instead of climbing to the top of the assassin rankings, Travis must work alongside fellow assassins to defend the planet from hordes of invading aliens.

While it's a standalone entry in the No More Heroes series, even the trailer recommends playing the prequels first.

HD remasters of No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle are available for $17.99 each on the Switch eShop. Both games first released on the Nintendo Wii in 2008 and 2010 respectively.

Travis struggles to prove he's the number one assassin in the first game, but his conquest has consequences. In No More Heroes 2, he's hunted by another assassin whose brother he killed in the first game.

Both games feature plenty of over-the-top beat-'em-up action. Travis switches between using his signature beam katana and melee-style wrestling moves to mow down foes with ease — when he's not chilling with his favorite retro-style mini-games, that is. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more No More Heroes news as it develops.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
