In a sea of pushbacks due mostly to Covid-19, another game has been added to that list. No More Heroes 3 has been delayed.

According to director Goichi “Suda51” Suda, No More Heroes 3 has been delayed to some time in 2021. He issued an apology on Twitter.

Here’s just part of that full statement posted in the tweet:

“All staff members at Grasshopper have been working as hard as possible on developing the game in hopes of releasing it in 2020, but the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have unfortunately proven to be a real body blow to our schedule, causing unforeseen delays in development.

Now that we have managed to get back on our feet with development, we have decided to focus on prioritizing quality and to therefore push back the final release date.”

The statement goes on to say the Switch game should release sometime in 2021, and the team has brought on comic book illustrator Darick W. Robertson (The Boys) to create some original illustrations. Which you can see below.

Originally slated exclusive to the Nintendo Switch, the game takes place ten years after the original titleIn it, Travis Touchdown will return to his former home of Santa Destroy where he will encounter a “huge artificial metropolis” floating in the sea. There’s also a strange object flying above the city. There will a lot to unpack in the story no doubt with Suda51 still writing.
