Travis Touchdown returns in colorful No More Heroes 3 trailer

He’s a goddamn superhero

A new trailer for Grasshopper Manufacture’s No More Heroes 3 was revealed during The Game Awards 2019 in Los Angeles on Thursday night.

On the livestream, Nintendo debuted the shortened trailer, but a longer trailer was posted to YouTube shortly after. (See above.) The colorful trailer features an anime-style story with one particularly weird, wacky character — “a goddamn superhero” — that turns everything into pink blobs.

No More Heroes 3 was first revealed during E3’s Nintendo Direct in June. It’ll be the first core game in the No More Heroes series since No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle was released in 2010. The game stars Travis Touchdown, the hero, of course, who’s on a journey toward becoming the world’s best assassin. And he swings something not entirely unlike a lightsaber.

No exact release date was given — just that No More Heroes 3 will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2020.
