Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, the third game in Suda51’s eclectic No More Heroes series, will come to PlayStation 4 and Windows PC (via Steam). More details are coming later, Studio Grasshopper Manufacture said yesterday.

Travis Strikes Again launched in January for Nintendo Switch. Its predecessor, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle launched all the way back in 2010 for Wii and no other systems. The first game in the series, No More Heroes, was a 2008 Wii exclusive that later came to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise.

For those not familiar with Travis Touchdown’s canon, the setup of Travis Strikes Again can sound downright weird, but here we go anyway: The otaku protagonist Travis is in seclusion somewhere in Texas when Badman, a retired baseball player assassin, comes looking for revenge. The two are sucked, Tron-style, into a video game console that was canceled before it launched. The two duke it out across six games inside the console, replete with references to real games.
