Nintendo has already a big list of games upcoming on Nintendo Switch most of them indie games since Nintendo gave out a pretty much free license for every small studio to make games for the console. More indies were confirmed during today’s Nintendos Summer Showcase presentation and one of them was No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again, which will also be exclusive for the console.
No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again is an indie game made by Grasshopper Manufacture, the studio of the famous game designer Suda51.
No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again was no secret, since last January Suda was invited onstage at Nintendo’s unveiling presentation for Nintendo Switch in Japan to talk about the console and that’s where he unveiled that he is working on an indie game to bring to the console.
The game is a sequel to No More Heroes and follows the main protagonist on its journey to take revenge for his daughter’s murder. The first game was released in 2007 in Japan and one year later in all other regions, delivering a unique art style. There was also a less known sequel No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, which was released for Nintendo Wii in 2010.
For No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again, Suda51 and his studio has teamed up with several indie developers to bring a rather different gameplay that we are accostumed to. The protagonist will be consumed by a Phantom Console and will have to beat 6 different games that the console contain and their bosses in order to survive.
Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase Summer 2017 also revealed Super Meat Boy Forever, Shovel Knight King of Cards and Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition. You can see the whole presentation down below:
