No More Heroes 3 is finally making it off Switch and onto PS4, PS5, Xbox, and PC. The third entry in the cult series was released late last year, and fans enjoyed it. However, it did receive criticism for poor performance and muddled graphics. Luckily, those issues might be fixed when the game comes to other platforms.
What is the release date for No More Heroes 3 on PS4 and PS5?
Unfortunately, the announcement that No More Heroes 3 would be coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox, and PC wasn’t accompanied by a release date. But, we did get an approximate window. The game will launch sometime during Fall 2023.
Those who are partial to physical copies will be glad to know that Xseed is planning a deluxe Day 1 Edition for consoles. For $59.99, players will get a copy of the game, a 70-page artbook, a CD soundtrack sampler, and a Santa Destroy bike license plate. All this will be housed in a custom box featuring a new illustration by artist Yusuke Kozaki.
Now, the big question is whether No More Heroes 1 and 2 will come to the PS4 and PS5. Both titles are already available on PC, and it’d be great to see the entire trilogy playable on all platforms now that it’s over.
Opinion: It should have had a multiplatform release to start with
Jason writes: Everyone has their own opinion on whether exclusives are good for the industry or not. One thing’s for sure, though: launching as a Switch exclusive was terrible for No More Heroes 3. Even with the compromised resolution and texture fidelity, the Switch just couldn’t run the game well. It was bad enough that big fans of the serious had issues with recommending it. Hopefully, the game will get the recognition it deserves when it launches on platforms that have the power to run it without so many compromises.
