Today’s release of No More Heroes 3 will bring the popular series to an end, creator Goichi ‘Suda51’ Suda has revealed.
In an open letter to fans to mark the game’s release, the director thanked fans for their support of the series. He revealed that the game was actually originally going to be subtitled “No More Heroes 3 FINAL BOUT – All-Out Galactic War!” but studio Grasshopper Manufacture decided this was too long.
“As hinted at with the “Final” thing,” he continued, “Travis Touchdown will finally be coming to the end of his final battle, and will be embarking on a much-deserved, long journey.” The director closed with a final farewell to the series and its hero. “As one journey ends, the crimson bike falls into a deep sleep. Goodbye Travis. Goodbye, No More Heroes. Goodbye, fleeting moments and days. Farewell, to all Travis Touchdowns everywhere!”
The series first kicked off with the first game, No More Heroes which released in 2007 on the Wii with follow-up No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle in 2010. Both were ported to the Nintendo Switch in October of last year.
If you want your last dose of Travis Touchdown then, you’ll have to pick up No More Heroes 3 which launches today for the Nintendo Switch. You can check out the launch trailer for the game below.
