No More Heroes 3 is coming to PC this fall

Publisher Xseed Games announced that is bringing No More Heroes 3 to PC and current-gen consoles this fall. Xseed previously released PC ports of the first two No More Heroes games.

The eccentric 3D action series began its life on the Wii, and is arguably the Grasshopper Manufacture, and its eccentric leadership, Suda 51’s best-known work. No More Heroes stars misanthropic idiot Travis Touchdown as he strives to become the greatest assassin of the world with the help of a laser sword that he got from the internet. The series has been defined by its absurd sense of humor, including a now 15-year commitment to having Travis (played to the fullest by Robin Atkin Downes of MGSV fame) save the game by finding a toilet and dropping a draw. You have to respect the Grasshopper’s commitment to the drill, at the very least.

No More Heroes combines fast-paced character action gameplay with exploration and mini-games in small but dense open worlds. Raffling off on Shenmue and his infamous forklift minigame, Travis must earn money between missions by taking on menial tasks like cut the grass. After all, professional assassins are always in their rut.

No More Heroes 3 as the quirky Japanese cult hit Deadly Premonition 2, was originally a Nintendo Switch exclusive, and both games appear to have struggled with that platform’s hardware limitations. I hope No More Heroes 3 has more room to stretch its legs on PC.
