Back in January people went nuts when it was announced that Goichi Suda (Suda51) was working on a brand new game for Nintendo Switch starring No More Heroes character Travis Touchdown.
He stated that it would not be a traditional NMH game, but instead, a collaboration between him and smaller indie creators. Not much else was said afterward. Flash-forward to Nintendo’s special Nindie Showcase this morning and we finally have a concept trailer with a bit more understanding of what to expect from Suda’s brilliant and insane mind. Taking place 7 years after NMH, Travis Strikes Back starts with The Batt confronting Travis about the death of his daughter Bad Girl. The 2 fight it out but eventually get impaled by a phantom game console, and now must try and make it out of the cursed console alive.
As stated before, the games inside the console were created with collaborations from other popular indie devs, the first of them being the people behind Hotline Miami. Also to note, the game will be running the latest Unreal Engine. Not much else was shown beyond the trailer, but hopefully, we find out more about the collaborations going on with the game. The game is scheduled to release as a Nintendo Switch exclusive sometime next year. Check out the trailer below and get hyped!
