Just today, Grasshopper Manufacture has released the Day 7 Patch for Travis Strike Again: No More Heroes – released just one week after the launch of the Switch exclusive.
In the new opening for the game, which has been included via the patch, shows off Badman speaking to none other than Dan Smith, one of the playable assassins in Suda51’s past title, Killer7.
It turns out that Dan Smith is the one who gave Bad Man the information on Touchdown’s whereabouts. Smith also gives Bad Man one of the six Death Balls needed to escape the video game that Travis and himself get sucked into.
Bad Man attempts to seek revenge for the death of his daughter, Bad Girl, who was killed by Travis during the events of the first No More Heroes.
What’s also interesting here is that Dan Smith from Killer7 is fully voiced in the opening by Michael Gough, the same voice actor who portrayed Smith in the GameCube game almost 15 years ago.
We’re not quite sure if this means that Killer7 is now part of the No More Heroes universe, but we shall wait and see as Suda51 will probably have something to say about all of this as time goes on.
