With No MoreHeroes III right around the corner how does Suda51’s original hold up in 2021?
No MoreHeroes was released for the Nintendo Wii in 2007 in Japan and in 2008 everywhere else. The game follows Travis Touchdown, a wrestling and anime fan who wants to become the #1 ranked assassin after winning a Beam Katana in an online auction. The game never takes itself too seriously, for example, if you want to save your game you have to use the toilet to do so, and it even breaks the fourth wall sometimes.
But how is the original No MoreHeroes in 2021? Should you go back to it in the leadup to No MoreHeroes 3? Hopefully this video will help answer that question, and yes there are no spoilers for the plot of the game in this video. The original No MoreHeroes and its sequel got ports to Nintendo Switch and Steam making it easier than ever to try the series out.
In terms of the series as a whole, No MoreHeroes got an “enhanced” port to Xbox 360 and PS3 (but only PS3 outside of Japan), a sequel titled No MoreHeroes 2: Desperate Struggle in 2010, a Japan only mobile spin-off game, another spin-off for consoles and PC titled Travis Strikes Again: No MoreHeroes, and now a 3rd numbered entry titled No MoreHeroes 3 which is set to be released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on August 27th, 2021. So while it’s not the most successful series in the world, it definitely wasn’t a one hit wonder.
