Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes' latest trailer introduces Electric Thunder Tiger II.

6

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes has a new trailer out in the wild, and this one shows us a bit more of what we can expect from one of the "video games" packed inside this video game.

This new footage from Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes revolves around Electric Thunder Tiger II, the first of quite a few different video games protagonist Travis Touchdown will be working to conquer throughout the game.

This iteration of the popular series takes place seven years after the events of the original game, where a former baseball player (now assassin) named Badman is looking to take revenge on Travis Touchdown for murdering his daughter Bad Girl. Travis Touchdown must clash with him as he and Badman find themselves transported into the world of several video games – you know, as it happens in the world of No More Heroes. It looks like an absolute blast, and there are even several indie games represented within the confines of the game world.

Recently, it was confirmed that the game is getting a physical edition as well as the digital edition we already knew about in both North America and Europe. Nintendo will be distributing the physical edition, while Grasshopper Manufacture will self-publish the digital version. The physical version comes with the game (of course) and the Season Pass, though we're not sure what all the Season Pass will be rocking just yet as there haven't been any details shared about it. We believe it will include an extra character, scenario, and stage.

This Nintendo Switch exclusive is set to launch on January 18, 2019. If you're hungry for more things No More Heroes and Suda51, be sure to check out our interview with the man himself, straight out of PAX West 2018.

      Supposedly there's going to be a big announcement next week regarding NMH during a livestream hosted by Suda51:

      Crossing my fingers that it's going to be an announcement for either NMH3 or even Travis being in Smash. Not sure which one would be more exciting.

      Well he’s pretty much said he’d do a NMH3, given the opportunity.

      Personally, I’d like a damn date for the Killer 7 remaster.

          It was supposed to be, but I thought it got delayed.

              And so it is! It’s even on sale, if you buy the remastered soundtrack at the same time!!

              I wish I had a PC right now. I’ll probably just buy the OST.
