No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2 get surprise release on Switch

Nintendo revealed No More Heroes III, the third-entry in the hack-and-slash series developed by Grasshopper, for the Nintendo Switch at last year's E3, with a proper trailer being released during The Game Awards. Initially slated for a release in 2020, the title has unfortunately been delayed to next year due to the pandemic, but the company is trying to hold fans over until the release by making the first two entries available on the Nintendo Switch.

No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle were originally released on the Wii, in 2007 and 2010, respectively. The titles feature Travis Touchdown, a man driven to become an assassin as a way to make money. The first two games focus mostly on Travis' career as an assassin, making his way up the ranks of the United Assassins Association by mowing down other assassins. The Switch versions are simple remasters, with some upgraded textures and improved text fonts.

In addition to revealing the re-release of the first two titles, Nintendo also showed off a short new trailer for No More Heroes III, the first one featuring gameplay. The trailer features the anti-hero facing off against alien enemies, which are the primary threat in the game this time around. The goal is simple - to destroy all the aliens.

No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle are both available today on the Nintendo eShop, each costing $17.99/£16.19 at launch, with the regular price being $19.99/£17.99. The third entry is slated for a vague 2021 release.
