No More Heroes 1 and 2 Have Both Come to Nintendo Switch Today
Travis Touchdown's first two adventures have now been ported over to the Switch to help players gear up for No More Heroes III.
Nintendo released its latest Direct Mini: Partner Showcase this morning and the presentation finally showed us a look at Grasshopper Manufacture’s No More Heroes III in action. While the game isn’t slated to arrive on Switch until next year, the developer did also announce that it has something else for fans to play right now.
As of today, new ports of both No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle have landed on the Nintendo Switch. Each title, which both originally released on the Nintendo Wii, have largely been stranded on the platform over the years, with the exception of NMH2 which eventually came to PS3. The reason for bringing both games over to the Switch is to allow those who haven’t played them before to catch up before the arrival of NMH3.
The coolest part of this move by far is that it makes the entire No More Heroes franchise accessible on a single platform. In addition to last year’s release of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes and the upcoming release of No More Heroes III, you’ll no longer need to have multiple platforms to experience the entirety of Travis Touchdown’s story. As someone who has been looking to more easily revisit these games in recent years, I could not be more thrilled on a personal level.
Both No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2 retail for $19.99 on the Nintendo eShop and are available to download right now. If you purchase either game right now, however, you can get them each for 10% off.
