PAX West 2018: Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes release date announced

Nintendo starts off PAX West with some big news for the upcoming Switch exclusive.


PAX West 2018 officially kicks off today and Nintendo has dropped some big news to get the hype trains started. Travis Strikes Back, the highly anticipated return to the No More Heroes series by Suda51, is launching January 18, 2019, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.

In Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, lead character Travis Touchdown and baseball-player-turned-assassin Badman get transported into the Death Drive MK-II video game console. Players will then have to navigate six games with different styles as they fight to collect six Death Bells from the games' bosses. Those collected bells grant the winner a wish.

The new build of the game is playable here at PAX West 2018, so stay tuned to Shacknews for hands-on impressions and gameplay in the near future. There's a lot more coming from PAX West 2018, so strap yourselves in!
