No More Heroes Travis Strikes Again is Suda 51's Indie Collaboration for the Switch

Travis Strikes Again isn't No More Heroes 3, it's an indie game collection.

Nintendo showed off its line-up of upcoming indie games today in a special livestream event. While there were plenty of new and exciting games, the biggest title was saved for last: a new No More Heroes game titled Travis Strikes Again. There was a new trailer and some more details, but the project still remains a bit of a mystery, especially with the intriguing details Nintendo dropped in today's livestream.

Suda 51 first announced a Travis Touchdown project back at the Nintendo Switch unveiling event. Later reports clarified the confusing press conference (as a result of a few mistranslations) that suggested the game wouldn't be a No More Heroes 3 as it would be a collaboration between Suda 51 and notable indie developers.

This turned out to be the case when the trailer opens with The Bat barging into a camper to avenge his daughter's death (Bad Girl from No More Heroes who Travis assassinated) only to find someone playing Denneton and Devolver Digital's Hotline Miami on TV. After engaging in a fight with Travis, the two of them get sucked into the phantom game console, Death Drive Mk. 2.

In order to escape the console, players will have to play and beat the six games within the console and beat each game's boss.

Although the game is directed by Suda 51, presumably each game within the console is a collaboration with another indie studio, although so far only Hotline Miami's developer has been teased. Travis Strikes Again is also being developed on the Unreal Engine 4 so expect to see some cutting edge graphics come into play.

No More Heroes Travis Strikes Again is scheduled for 2018, and we'll try to get more details to you as soon as they're available.
