No More Heroes III Delayed to 2021


A new Twitter post by Director Goichi “Suda51” Suda yesterday stated that the release of Grasshopper Manufacture’s No More Heroes III has been delayed to 2021.

Suda mentions that 2020 has been a really rough period for a number of people, and that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have “proven to be a real body blow” to their schedule. This caused unforeseen delays in development, and that the development team has finally been able to get back on their feet. They are now focused on prioritizing quality, which is why the release date needed to be moved.

Suda also mentioned that Darick Robertson (The Boys) will lend his talents, serving as an illustrator for the title. Key art from him will be released at a later date.

You can find the Tweet below:

The fourth entry in the series, No More Heroes III follows Travis Touchdown once again as he returns to Santa Destroy. While there, he must fight against an alien invasion led by a galactic overlord prince.

In addition to Robertson serving as an illustrator, Nobuaki Kaneko (Rize) will write and compose the soundtrack. The band Red Orca was formed in alignment with this title, with their single “Orca Force” now available.

The game will come out for the Nintendo Switch.
