No More Heroes 3 heads to new platforms in October

Destructoid's Most Anticipated Games of 2021

A date for the drop of its Switch exclusivity

Publisher XSEED Games has locked in a date for No More Heroes 3 on a bevy of new platforms. No More Heroes will hit PlayStation, Xbox, and PC on October 11, 2022.

The previously Nintendo Switch-exclusive game now has a date locked in for other platforms, as well as a special “Day 1 Edition” of the game. This version is available for pre-order through the XSEED store for $59.99, and contains a soundtrack, art book, and commemorative license plate.

Store pages aren’t live yet for the other versions. XSEED says that more info about the digital editions of No More Heroes 3 will arrive at a later date.

A world without heroes

No More Heroes 3 was released last year, just for the Nintendo Switch. And while it was certainly a return to more of Travis Touchdown and his usual action and antics, it also had some technical hurdles to overcome.

Frequent load times were a point of contention in our review, and performance woes seemed to affect the general consensus. There’s hope, then, that No More Heroes 3 arriving on platforms with more hardware power to spare could help smooth out those edges. XSEED and Grasshopper say that these new platforms will see improved HD visuals and framerates, as well as faster load times.

But for some other players, this might be their chance to finally experience the next step of Travis Touchdown’s journey. Though other games have since been ported around, this finally brings the third entry out to most gaming devices. It’ll be on PS4 and PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and the Windows Store. The Xbox versions will support Smart Delivery, too.

For those hoping to finally see Travis leap onto next-gen consoles, the wait’s not much longer. No More Heroes hits PlayStation, Xbox, and PC on October 11.
