PC, PlayStation, and Xbox versions are due this fall
Whether you intentionally held off getting the one and only Nintendo Switch version of No More Heroes 3, or you kinda just let it slip, some great news: it’s also coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC in fall 2022, including a physical release from XSEED.
There’s a lot to praise in No More Heroes III — it’s a blast to see Suda51 unleashed like this — but graphics and performance aren’t a part of that lovefest. Players just had to tolerate them. The upcoming ports should be a step up, but whether the game runs “ideally” on these platforms or simply “better than it did on Switch” remains to be seen.
In today’s announcement from XSEED Games, the publisher cited “improved HD visuals, framerates, and faster loading times.” You hear that, Gold Joe? Time’s up.
Apart from a digital release on Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms, XSEED will be bringing out a physical No More Heroes 3 Day 1 Edition this fall. The boxed edition will cost $60 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S with a copy of the game (it’s weird to have to mention this nowadays!), a 70-page softcover art book, a CD with “select songs,” and a 7″x4″ Santa Destroy license plate. The cover art is illustrated by artist Yusuke Kozaki.
When it comes to timed Nintendo Switch exclusives like this, it’s almost always a gamble on where they’ll end up when the dust fully settles. I wouldn’t have predicted an Xbox release for No More Heroes 3, but PS4 and/or PC? Sure. Now are you in, or are you in?
