A short No More Heroes 3 gameplay video has surfaced, courtesy of Perfectly Nintendo on YouTube. The video showcases two brutal sword attacks: the Slash and the Death Blow. Watch Travis Touchdown in all of his slashing, death-blowing glory in the video directly below.
While this isn’t too deep of a look into the gameplay and combat for No More Heroes 3, what we have on display here still appears to be pretty darn fun – just as you’d expect from this series. The melee combat looks fluid, punchy, and satisfying, and I bet that with a full moveset (rather than the two sword tricks demonstrated in the video), the combat becomes even more varied and enjoyable.
Set for release this August, No More Heroes 3 will hopefully catapult the series into the mainstream with a successful Switch launch. The game looks quite excellent so far, and marks a long-awaited return to form for a series that has not had a traditional release (Travis Strikes Again was more of a spin-off) in almost a decade. We haven’t seen a ton so far, but what we have gotten to feast our eyes on looks quite exciting.
