Travis Touchdown’s most recent adventure from the mind of Suda 51 and Grasshopper production, No More Heroes 3 has been a Switch exclusive since it was released. But as of today, that all changes as Xseed has announced that it will bring NMH3 to more platforms this fall.
No More Heroes 3 is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, according to a tweet from Xseed Games. An image embedded with the message shows what appears to be the collector’s edition for console versions. Included with these expansions is a CD labeled “music selection” from No More Heroes 3, Santa Destroy’s “MOE~” virtual license plate, and an art book.

I had the honor of revisiting the Switch release of No More Heroes 3, and while I loved the battle and a lot of the humour, the performance, resolution, and overall tedium of the open world has reduce the experience. Here’s hoping that the game can greatly benefit from the transition to more powerful hardware, and maybe even add some extra buttons to suit the PC crowd. I gave No More Heroes 3 a 7.75 out of 10 out of Game informant ratio. Here’s a snippet to find out what’s in store if you dive into NMH3:
No More Heroes 3 is bloody in style, full of interesting references, and has amazing fun being weird and ostentatious. During the first hour, the cast’s backdrop shifts towards drama and violence. In addition, I counted no less than four title cards in that time, one of which stayed on screen longer than any other in memory. I’m still giggling about parts of this game’s presentation days later. Suda and his team at Grasshopper effortlessly create visual and audio effects on the user interface, menus, and cutscenes that bring loads of classic games to mind. Few, if any, of the references feel boring; they’re all part of the game’s DNA.
