Last month, many fans were saddened to learn that No More Heroes III will not be making its release for 2020. Grasshopper Manufacture lead Goichi Suda went to Twitter to break the news by sharing that the continuing novel coronavirus epidemic has limited the scale of development for the anticipated sequel.

But with more time for fans to patiently wait as the next mainline entry is being primed for next year, what are fans expected to do? Well, many were hopeful to replay the first two No More Heroes games. It was reported prior to the announcement that 2007’s No More Heroes would be receiving a Switch version as found by a rating in Taiwan. Howbeit, many were confused as to when the announcement would be made and if the follow-up would come after in time before No more Heroes III ships.

But now in a new announcement from Grasshopper Manufacture, the Japanese developer unveiled that both No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle are available now for Nintendo Switch. You can watch the trailer in the video below:

As gathered from the trailer, highly-anticipated fans can also take in new gameplay for No more Heroes III. A wait that could have been quenched earlier on if not for Suda himself standing in front of the screen while new footage of the game is being displayed behind him as the game director comments about his life.

Recently in relevance to the series’ protagonist Travis Touchdown, his chances of being added to the Super Smash Bros. roster has been squandered. It was speculated that the character would be the next addition to the game following an interview where Suda remained quiet on answering the chances of Travis Touchdown in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

It wasn’t until weeks after that Nintendo unveiled Minecraft’s Steve would be the next addition. It was then learned that Suda was hiding the fact that Travis Touchdown would receive a Mii costume for the game instead. You can read the full report by heading here.
