No More Heroes III is an upcoming action-adventure hack and slash video game developed and published by Grasshopper Manufacture, and co-published by Marvelous for Nintendo Switch. It is the fourth installment in the franchise and the third numbered entry in the mainline series. Following a ten-year hiatus since the last numbered entry, the game follows Travis Touchdown's return to Santa Destroy, as he must defend Earth from a very powerful army of alien invaders led by an intergalactic overlord prince.
Eight years before the start of the series, a young boy named Damon Riccitiello goes to launch his rocket in the air at night after a failed attempt when he sees something crash into the woods and encounters an injured small alien named FU. Damon decides to take care of FU while hiding him from government agents who are also searching for him. While searching for a way to return FU to its planet, Damon and FU become best friends, forming a strong connection. After discovering a piece of alien technology at FU's crash site, Damon is imbued with alien powers and assists FU in building a space ship. They say goodbye to each other, with FU promising to return in 20 years. FU finally goes home just as government agents attempt to capture him.
Twenty years later, nine years after the events of No More Heroes 2 and two years after the events of Travis Strikes Again, an adult Damon is now the CEO of Utopinia — an urban renewal company — utilizing FU's alien technology to become a powerful business magnate. A huge space ship shaped like a pyramid appears below the ship Damon is on, and a group of nine aliens descends from it, one of them revealing to be FU. Awaiting a happy reunion, FU, now in a more humanoid adult form and is now a prince, returns introducing the eight other aliens as his friends who he met in the Blackhole Prison where he was exiled to for annihilating a neighboring planet and revealing to Damon that he intends on conquering the Earth with Damon's help, much to Damon's horror. FU and his cohorts decide they will utilize superheroism as their means of world domination. Former top-ranked assassin in the UAA Travis Touchdown returns to Santa Destroy from his self-imposed exile. Learning of the situation, he must face off against this legion of super-powered beings from outer space to "save" the world.
