Suda51 delivers No More Heroes 3 message, shares scrapped subtitle
Suda51 shared a new message with No More Heroes fans as No More Heroes 3 finally arrives on Switch.
It has a bit of a somber tone, as the game’s director is essentially saying goodbye to Travis Touchdown and the series as a whole – at least for now. We also learn that the full name Suda51 envisioned for No More Heroes 3 is technically “No More Heroes 3 Final Bout – All-Out Galactic War”, but the title was trimmed in the end.
Here’s the full message from Suda51:
I hope everyone is getting by OK in the summer heat.
There is a brand new, exhilarating, action game in which the entire galaxy is thrown into a state of war that will hopefully help to blow away this sweltering heat and humidity, and it’s being released on August 27th.
This game is called No More Heroes 3 Final Bout – All-Out Galactic War! Or, it was going to be called that, but the subtitle was just too long so we ended up taking a hint from the Rocky series and simply going with No More Heroes 3 instead.
As hinted at with the “Final” thing, Travis Touchdown will finally be coming to the end of his final battle, and will be embarking on a much-deserved, long journey.
Join him as he goes absolutely buck wild in the Garden – no, Cosmos of Madness!
Now, carrying with it a thousand thoughts, I run along the Thunder Road once more. As one journey ends, the crimson bike falls into a deep sleep.
Goodbye, No More Heroes.
Goodbye, fleeting moments and days.
Farewell, to all Travis Touchdowns everywhere.
If it sounds like Suda51 is saying goodbye to No More Heroes in light of No More Heroes 3, it’s likely because the franchise will be taking a rest. He recently stated that No More Heroes 4 would likely be ten years away, if it happens. However, Suda51 also has interest in creating a spinoff starring Shinobu.
