Well well, guess I'll just buy this then. I was waiting for a Switch physical release following its release on the e-shop a while ago, but nothing came. So if I'm gonna go digital, might as well be on PC.

Switch physical release already happened through LimitedRunGames. Sorry dawg

Ah I live in the UK, didn't know about this. How annoying. Sometimes you're better off not knowing lol...

For sure man. The good news is that Best Buy in the US is gonna carry it once they're printed, so it shouldn't be that pricey on eBay to grab the two games :p

The Next No More Heroes Could Work Without Travis Touchdown

Half-Glass Gaming: "Travis Touchdown is awesome, and he’s a huge reason No More Heroes is so great. That said, series creator and director Suda51 said he would be open to making a spinoff starring fan-favorite Shinobu. And though the series’ fate isn’t entirely up to Suda [as he doesn't own the IP], a sans-Travis entry could definitely work."

NMH seems to revolve around Travis like DMC revolves around Dante, GoW revolves around Kratos, Ninja Gaiden revolves around Ryu, and Bayonetta revolves around well…

It wouldn’t feel right to have these kind of action games to not have their main character in the lead role or not present at all

TheSanchezDavid925d ago

I totally get the sentiment, and I agree to a certain degree that these character action games feel a certain type of special because they focus on a single character most of the time. That said, given NMH's lore and other rad characters like Shinobu and Bad Girl, I'd say that universe could definitely be explored from a different character's perspective and still be super badass.

@ Crimson

Yakuza 7 plays dramatically different than the other Yakuza games. Judgment hardly even used any plot elements from the other Yakuza games.

@ Sanchez

Many of those other characters & themes revolve around Travis though. Suda even stated the unique setting of NMH is based on Travis. He as a character is too ingrained in the very essence of this series to ever be removed. Suda also stated Travis is his favorite character.

I could see other characters being made playable like in NMH2 and NMH TSA alongside Travis similar to how other playable characters along with Dante have been introduced since DMC1. However not featuring Travis at all doesn’t seem feasible.

In addition one must also consider that NMH as a series has niche sales as if is. Removing the most recognizable face of the franchise wouldn’t work well commercially.

TheSanchezDavid925d ago

Travis is definitely integral to NMH. I think if a spin-off were made where he's not the playable character, it would still work if he's an important NPC or a core part of the story.

Suda also said he'd be down to make a game where Shinobu is the main character, and she's super popular among the NMH fan base. So while the series is pretty niche, that niche audience has an appreciation for a lot of the characters (especially Shinobu).

So while I don't necessarily disagree with most of your points, I think in terms of a spin-off or a Shinobu-centric game, it could def work.

Such a shame! Was hoping they'd be better, but some of the prompts reinforced my fears!
