A new trailer for the game, which is viewable below, was published on Tuesday to coincide with the release date announcement.
XSEED announced plans bring the game to additional platforms in April, when it said the new versions will feature improved visuals, better framerates and faster loading times.
The game will be released both digitally and as a physical ‘Day 1 Edition’, which will sell for $59.99.
The Day 1 edition will come with a number of physical extras, including:
- a copy of the game
- a softcover art book
- a CD with select songs from the soundtrack
- a Santa Destroy biker licence plate
- a custom box with a new illustration by series artist Yusuke Kozaki
No More Heroes 3, which is set nine years after the events of the second game, sees protagonist Travis Touchdown once again trying to make his way to the top of a leaderboard of assassins.
The twist is that this time the assassins all come from outer space, and Travis is trying to defeat them in order to reach an evil alien called FU and stop him from taking over the world.
VGC’s No More Heroes 3 review called the game “a faithful follow-up for better or worse”.
It concluded: “No More Heroes 3 is exactly what fans of the series have been waiting for – an authentic sequel that continues the story of Travis Touchdown.
“If you loved the previous games, you’ll love this. However, it doesn’t offer anything new to improve on the series’ flaws, meaning anyone who isn’t a devotee may want to try the original first to see if its quirky, sharp-tongued style is for them.”
