Xseed Games has announced a release date for the upcoming No More Heroes 3 PC and console versions. The third mainline title in Suda51's No More Heroes series, which debuted on Nintendo Switch last year, will be headed to new platforms this October and will boast a number of improvements including better visuals and improved frame rates.
When is the No More Heroes 3 PC and console release date?
Back in April, it was announced that No More Heroes 3 would make its way to PC and non-Switch consoles in late 2022. Now, we know exactly when we can expect Travis Touchdown's third (sort of) adventure to break out of its Switch confines and head to other pastures. The No More Heroes 3 PC and console release date lands on October 11th. The PlayStation, Xbox, and PC versions of this game will have several technical improvements over the Switch version, too, including better visuals, smoother frame rates, and faster loading times.
What is No More Heroes 3?
No More Heroes 3 is, rather counterintuitively, the fourth installment in the No More Heroes series, although it's the third core title. It once again stars protagonist Travis Touchdown, who returns to the city of Santa Destroy in order to defend it from an army of intergalactic alien superhero cosplayers (it's a Suda51 game, remember). No More Heroes 3 features the same juxtaposition of frantic lightsaber combat and mundane minigames as its predecessors, so it'll appeal to you if you're already a fan of Suda's oeuvre.
You can grab No More Heroes 3 right now on Nintendo Switch, and it'll be available for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC on October 11th. The game will support Smart Delivery on Xbox, so if you pick it up on Xbox One, you'll be able to play it on Xbox Series X|S as well. If Suda51 is to be believed, No More Heroes 3 could be Travis Touchdown's last adventure, so enjoy it while you can. Then again, Suda's studio Grasshopper Manufacture was picked up by NetEase last year, so it's clear we'll be getting more Suda51 games in the future. Watch this space for more info.
