No More Heroes 3 comes to Switch this August

Travis Touchdown's return to the Switch happens a little later than originally planned.

Nintendo has announced a release date for No More Heroes 3 as part of its big Direct presentation overnight. The game will be available on Switch on August 27.

As revealed in the game's latest trailer, No More Heroes 3 pits series protagonist Travis Touchdown against aliens. Touchdown returns from a ten-year break to find that aliens have invaded Earth. In typical whacky Suda51 magic, the aliens are holding a tournament to rank Earth's superheroes and determine the planet's fate.

The game will be split into smaller side missions - essentially menial tasks like mowing lawns and mining - and big boss fights with the aliens. You'll need to do the former to earn your entry fee to fight the latter. As the trailer shows, No More Heroes 3 will, like its predecessors, switch genres and styles throughout.

The Death Glove has also been updated, now offering the selection of four custom skills you can fire off, and later upgrade, at any time. Catch the new trailer above.
