The No More Heroes 3 release date has been revealed for PS5 and PS4, along with Xbox and PC platforms. The game was originally released as a Nintendo Switch exclusive in August last year, and will finally reach these new platforms on October 11, 2023 in North America, which falls right in line with the original Fall 2023 release window. The port will come with better frame rates, enhanced visuals, and faster loading times compared to the Switch release.

In No More Heroes 3, otaku assassin Travis Touchdown is forced to defend Earth after being in retirement for a long time. While he was the number-one assassin, he needs to prove that he’s not just a middle-aged has-been who talks to cats. While the Switch release was criticized for having substandard graphics and performance, the improvements coming to the game on these new platforms should help.
In July 2019, Suda51 revealed through an interview with Dengeki Online that he’s had conversations with publisher Marvelous in Japan to see if it would be interested in remastering the first two No More Heroes games.
