XSEED Games announced plans to publish No More Heroes 3 on next-gen consoles in Fall 2022.
No More Heroes 3 was originally released exclusively on Nintendo Switch, but the action-adventure game will be coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in North America this fall.
Its arrival on new platforms will also come with some upgrades, including “improved HD visuals, framerates, and faster loading times to keep players dishing out eye-popping ultraviolence” according to an XSEED press release.

XSEED Games, which previously handled PC ports for No More Heroes 1 and 2, announced pre-orders for the new upgrade’s Day 1 Edition on Friday. News about a digital release isn’t quite ready yet, though.
The announcement comes months after Grasshopper Manufacture, the Japanese studio behind the No More Heroes series, became a subsidiary of China’s NetEase Games.
No More Heroes 3 was first released in 2021 and follows up on the cult-classic series, which has been running since 2007. The newest installment expands on the story of “otaku hero” Travis Touchdown, who’s back to defend Earth against Prince FU (and to climb his way to the top of the Galactic Superhero Rankings) in another hack-and-slash adventure.
IGN reviewed No More Heroes 3 at release, calling it “amusing but extremely uneven” due to lackluster performance and repetition. Hopefully No More Heroes 3 will receive an improvement with a jump to new systems.
