No More Heroes 3 is the latest game by director Suda51 for the Nintendo Switch. While the game has a colorful cast of characters and a unique style, it suffers from repetitive gameplay.
No More Heroes 3’s Travis Touchdown is the anti video game mascot. He’s vulgar, crass, impulsive and an idiot. But his zeal makes him both hilarious and unforgettable.
That’s exactly what auteur game designer Suda51 (pronounced five-one), who’s real name is Goichi Suda, gave us with No More Heroes 3 on the Nintendo Switch. It’s a follow-up to No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, which was released back on the Wii in 2010. Here we have a tortuous narrative of satirical story telling that scoffs at logic, featuring oddly designed characters, dimwitted motivations and a plot that has no idea where it’s going to end up next. Simply put, Suda does what Suda wants and I couldn’t get enough of it.
