If you struck out with Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes because it only launched on the Nintendo Switch, you'll get another shot at the game next month. Publisher XSEED Games has announced that PC and PlayStation 4 ports of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes are coming on October 17. Pre-orders on Steam and through the PlayStation Store with a PS Plus account get a 10% discount, knocking the price down to $35.99 USD.
Both the PC and PS4 are getting the Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Complete Edition, which includes the Black Dandelion and Bubblegum Fatale DLC content previously released for the Switch version.
Series director Goichi "Suda51" Suda returned to the series for Travis Strikes Again, which takes place after 2010's No More Heroes 2, but is less of a direct sequel than the forthcoming No More Heroes 3. The game follows charismatic series star Travis Touchdown as he teams up with rival assassin Badman to fight through a series of advanced, over-the-top arcade games. The gameplay is a departure from the third-person combat of the first two titles, opting for top-down Hotline Miami-esque brawling.
This release will mark the first time that a No More Heroes title has been released on a non-Nintendo platform. The first two games were exclusive to the Wii, and No More Heroes 3 is set to launch for the Nintendo Switch in 2020.
In USgamer's review, Matt Kim said Travis Strikes Again was like "a deep cut meant for diehard fans of Grasshopper Manufacture games and Suda51," so you may want to acquaint yourself with the first two games if this will be your first No More Heroes experience.
