Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is an action-adventure hack-n-slash game developed by Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture and published by Nintendo (Retail version only) for the Nintendo Switch as the third main installment in the No More Heroes game series. The game was first teased at the Nintendo Switch presentation on January 13, 2017 as "Travis Touchdown's big comeback" and a teaser trailer was released during the Nindies Summer Presentation on August 30th, 2017 revealing the game as the third No More Heroes installment with the title "Travis Strikes Again". It was released on January 18, 2019.
The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4, and has collaborations with other indie developers, in which elements from their games are implemented in the games Travis will go through, as Hotline Miami is shown on his TV.
On November 14, 2018, Grasshopper Manufacture announced that Travis Strikes Again would receive a physical edition which would be distributed by Nintendo. The physical version of the game is also bundled with a season pass. The developers have confirmed that some of the additional content will include a new playable character, a new scenario, and a new stage.
While part of the No More Heroes series, Suda does not consider the game a direct sequel to the previous title No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, but a fresh start for the character Travis. Despite this, the story is clearly written as a direct sequel to No More Heroes 2, heavily and directly drawing from events from the previous two games.
7 years after the events of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, a new character named the Badman seeks to exact revenge on Travis Touchdown for killing his daughter, Bad Girl. The two are then sucked into Travis's console, the Death Drive Mk II, and must escape by beating all 6 games and their respective bosses.
