Nintendo went all out this week showcasing a slew of high-profile games heading to the Switch, 3DS and 2DS — titles like Doom, Wolfenstein II and Pokemon Gold. But, just last month, Nintendo was all about indie love. That’s when the company and renowned ultra-violent game director Goichi “Suda51” Suda revealed Travis Strikes Again, the third title in the No More Heroes series. And, this time around, he’s brought 15 indie video game creators along for the ride.
Suda51’s studio, Grasshopper Manufacture, debuted No More Heroes on the Wii in 2008 as a pop-culture-infused, cel-shaded, hack-and-slash adventure game starring Travis Touchdown, an anime-obsessed assassin with a lot of sass. And a glowing beam katana. Of course.
