No More Heroes 3 - New Platforms Release Date Trailer

When No More Heroes 3 launched for Switch in 2021, it received positive reviews, with critics praising its writing, action, and music. The game had suffered from a lengthy development cycle, which was exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

No More Heroes 3 places you in the shoes of Travis Touchdown, a professional assassin tasked with eliminating targets in order to reach the top of the Galactic Superhero Rankings, while also saving the world in the process (no big deal). It features an open world, fast-paced hack-and-slash gameplay, and a beautiful, vibrant art style. The game is flashy and features tons of fan service, making it a standout entry in the series.

The previous No More Heroes game, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes launched in 2019 and received mixed reviews. No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle was the last numbered installment, which came to the Wii in 2010.

The No More Heroes series comes to us from Goichi Suda (AKA Suda51), who’s best known for ridiculous action games such as Killer7, Shadows of the Damned, Lollipop Chainsaw (which is getting a remake next year), Killer is Dead, and free-to-play action RPG Let it Die. Many of Suda51’s games have gone under the radar, but have amassed cult followings thanks to their wackiness and over-the-top action sequences.

All kitten locations in No More Heroes 3
Travis and Jeane looking at the sky.

The one person Travis can count on in his life to always have his back isn't a person at all -- it's his loyal cat, Jeane. If you've played the previous games in the series, you'll know that he tries to take very good care of Jeane by keeping her feed, in shape, and happy. Instead of the usual mini-games involving Travis interacting with Jeane, No More Heroes 3 changes things up by introducing a brand new collectible related to Jeane -- her kittens!

That's right, Jeane has fully grown up and had a litter of kittens that have become scattered all across the regions you will explore in No More Heroes 3. She's lost track of a staggering 11 kittens, and it's up to you to reunite them with their mother back in the motel room. These kittens are small and well hidden around the open world, but there are ways to make the process of tracking them down easier. Here are all the kitten locations in No More Heroes 3, plus some helpful tips for bringing them all home.

No More Heroes 3 beginner’s guide

Travis Touchdown is back in No More Heroes 3, his most bloody, violent adventure yet. After climbing up to the No. 1 ranked assassin twice, he faces his most difficult task yet in becoming the top-ranked assassin in the entire galaxy. Suda 51 joints -- and Grasshopper Manufacture games in general -- are constantly overflowing with personality, quirky characters, insane plots, and buckets upon buckets of gore. The No More Heroes games are probably their most approachable in terms of plot, but that doesn't make them a walk in the park in terms of gameplay.

It's been more than a few years since his last proper outing, not counting the smaller, arcade-style spinoff game Travis Strikes Again, so it would only be natural if your beam katana skills are a bit dull. In the past, Travis has been pitted against an eclectic cast of zany, outlandish, and downright weird foes to cut down as he worked his way up the assassin ranks. No More Heroes 3 introduces the UAA, filled with adversaries that are literally out of this world. If you need some training before your next round in No More Heroes 3, charge up your beam katana and check out this beginner's guide.

How to deflect attacks in No More Heroes 3
No More Heroes 3

In another world, No More Heroes 3's star Travis Touchdown would be the guy who ran up behind you to say "nothing personal, kid" before pretending to slash you with his katana. Instead, we live in the world where Travis actually gets to wield a beam katana and slow down time to get around enemies to slash them to pieces. Well, as long as you're skilled enough with the controls to pull it off, of course. Unlike the basics of combat, triggering this ability, known as the Dark Step, isn't spelled out by the game.

Deflections, parries, and perfect dodges are staples of the action genre. They're often the higher risk, higher reward option for skilled players to gamble with over simple blocks. The Dark Step is No More Heroes 3's version of this mechanic and can turn difficult encounters into deadly dances of carnage as you deftly avoid enemy attacks and counter with your own strikes. It can also be a lifesaver when put in a tight situation. If you want to really style on the enemies in No More Heroes 3, mastering this mechanic is key. Here's all you need to know about how to deflect attacks in No More Heroes 3.
