Beloved otaku and professional assassin Travis Touchdown came roaring back into the limelight last year when No More Heroes 3 launched for the Nintendo Switch, and soon, a great many more people are going to be able to dive into his newest adventure. Publisher Marvelous (who now fully own the property following developer Grasshopper Manufacture’s acquisition by NetEase) announced earlier this year that the action-adventure title would be coming to additional platforms later this year, and now we know when to expect that- in Japan at least.
No More Heroes 3 will launch for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and Xbox One in Japan on October 6. A digital deluxe edition of the game will also be sold, which will also include an artbook and a digital soundtrack. Meanwhile, the game will also receive a physical launch in the region- but for PlayStation consoles only.
On Xbox Series X and PS5, No More Heroes 3 will run in 4K at 60 FPS, while full Japanese audio has also been added. The latter is also coming to the game’s Nintendo Switch version as a free update. The full list of actors comprising its Japanese voice cast has also been confirmed. Check it out below (courtesy of Gematsu):
