The Nintendo Switch exclusive sequel to No More Heroes, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, is coming to the console this year. Though there isn't a concrete date just yet, you can expect Travis to...touch down...this year on the handheld.
Today, during the latest Nintendo Direct presentation, we finally got to see what the game actually looks like in action. Unsurprisingly, it looks excellent, deftly melding several different genres of games together to make one action-packed adventure.
Some of the newest footage shows off wildly different visuals and gameplay styles, which are actually blamed in the game on "bugs." That means a whole cavalcade of cool stuff for players, who get a tour-de-force of "flavors" from various genres. You don't even have to go it alone, as there will be co-op multiplayer in-game. The second player will take up the mantle of Badman, who carries around his trusty bat. You can pass a second Joy-Con controller to whoever's playing with you to share the fun.
The story finds Travis Touchdown on the hunt for every single bug he can track down that's inhabiting the game console he's been sucked into. The game's "Adventure Mode" will follow players as they square off against a boss battle after each different game. Boneface's signature art style can be seen in the trailer, whose work you may recall from the Queens of the Stone Age albums ...Like Clockwork and Villains.
There isn't a release date for the game just yet, but the Nintendo Direct presentation did confirm that it's heading to the Switch later this year.
