No More Heroes 3 Release Date Announced During Nintendo Direct

No More Heroes 3 finally has a release date plus a snazzy new trailer courtesy of the latest Nintendo Direct.

After what feels like an eternity of waiting and hoping, we finally have a No More Heroes 3 release date. Nintendo and Grasshopper announced the latest entry in Travis Touchdown's saga releases August 27 on Nintendo Switch.

Aliens have invaded the planet, and after reducing an entire city to rubble they're holding an intergalactic superhero tournament to decide Earth's fate. Travis takes part to save the planet, but it's not as simple as that.

No More Heroes 3's tournaments have a steep entry fee. Travis must take on odd jobs around the city to earn enough money and take part in each trial, meaning it's one of the only times where cutting the grass could actually save the world.

Each trial is a massive boss fight that turns into more than just a simple beatdown. Every alien Travis faces has a special gimmick, from turning the arena into a first-person horror adventure to making the fight play out in Final Fantasy fashion.

No More Heroes 3 releases August 27 on Nintendo Switch and as yet, there's no word whether it will head to other consoles.


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.
