Earlier this year, Xseed Games announced that No More Heroes 3 will be making its way to current and previous generation consoles, as well as PC. The former Nintendo Switch exclusive is set to arrive on other platforms on October 6. As that date approaches, more information is being released on what this version of the game will look like. Specifically, it will include Japanese voice acting and run at 60 frames per second.
On Twitter, a news account Suda51 revealed several details regarding the upcoming release of No More Heroes 3. To start with, the account, @TravisDiesAgaintweeted a link to a Japanese trailer for the game which revealed the October 6 release date. Additionally, this release date would be a worldwide release for the PlayStation, Xbox, and PC versions of the game.
Breaking down the accompanying trailer, the game will also feature Japanese voice acting for the first time. Of course, it will also use the power of next-gen consoles and include 4K/60fps cutscenes. Games japanese website has been completely redesigned for the next release. It shows off some key art from the game, along with some video clips.
One of these clips from the game’s official Japanese website is a preview of how the game works on other platforms. The 30-second clip shows gameplay from the console’s upcoming release, and it appears to be a smooth transition from Switch to other platforms. In fact, one of the things we noted during our initial review of the Nintendo Switch game was that its performance was inhibited by the console. Perhaps the rough edges of the game will be smoothed out on more powerful consoles.
Funnily enough, No More Heroes creator Goichi “Suda51” Suda once revealed to us that the game won’t be released beyond the Nintendo Switch. Fortunately, that has changed and No More Heroes 3 will be given new life on next-gen consoles.
