Today Marvelous Entertainment and Grasshopper Manufacture released a large gallery of screenshots of the upcoming action game No More Heroes 3.
This follows yesterday’s livestream with plenty of gameplay in which the same elements were discussed and showcased by creator Goichi “Suda51” Suda himself.
We get to see the characters (both heroes and villains), Santa Destroy and its map, and the activities that we can enjoy.
Ranking Battles let Travis aim to be number one by beating the top-9 in the leaderboards. Only, this time they are alien superheroes instead of assassins.
The slash action of the game is partly familiar, including the Beam Katana and its peculiar charging action, the Death Glove skills, and wrestling techniques. You can eat sushi for recovery and buffs, and you can spin the slash reel when you defeat enemies, triggering a variety of effect. On top of that, you can also transform into Travis’ Full Armor look.
The motel in Santa Destroy has also changed, especially due to the fact that now Shinobu and Bad Girl live there as well. Underground, you can find Dr. Naomi’s lab.
You can find all the screenshots below.
“The legendary assassin Travis Touchdown makes his glorious return to the Madness!
Our hero, Travis Touchdown, must make it to the top of the Galactic Superhero Rankings in order to stop the evil Prince FU and his ten alien assassins from taking over the Earth.
Earn money to enter ranked battles!
To enter into each subsequent ranked battle, you’ll need to pay a pretty steep fee. Travis must take on various missions around town to make the money he needs to fight. An invitation to the next fight will be sent once the required fees have been transferred via ATM.
Use your skills to dominate opponents!
Enjoy even more hardcore slash-‘em-up action than ever before as you use the Joy-Con’s intuitive controls to wield Travis Touchdown’s trusty Beam Katana along with a slew of pro wrestling techniques!
Also, featured for the first time in the series, Travis can now use his Death Glove to activate a variety of skills, allowing for more strategic battles. Furthermore, you can now customize the new Skill Tree and try out different Death Glove Chip combinations to find the play style that works best for you.
It’s the Galaxy vs. the Hood in a full-on war by proxy.”
