With less than a month to go before No More Heroes III strikes its way to Nintendo Switch, promotion for the game has certainly been ramping up. Following recent details, footage, and screenshots on characters, new areas, and combat, the latest trailer shines the spotlight on the new antagonists that Travis will be facing this time around.

Jess Baptiste VI, otherwise known as FU, is ranked number one in the Galactic Superhero Rankings and has arrived on Earth with nine other aliens to conquer the planet. The trailer runs through the ranked alien superheroes and their distinct personalities.

 

 

Following the reveal of her return earlier this week, the trailer also features Kimmy Howell (now known as Kimmy Love), Travis’s self-proclaimed number one fan from No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle. There’s a quick shot of Kimmy and Travis fighting on a stage, which may hint that their next encounter may be another boss fight. You can also catch quick glimpses of Shinobu and Jeane the cat, as well as lots of combat and gore.

No More Heroes III will launch exclusively on Nintendo Switch on August 27th and is available to pre-order on Amazon. On the topic of the new alien antagonists, this week Director Goichi “Suda51” Suda discussed just how dangerous Travis’s new enemies are — he also revealed his hopes for a No More Heroes TV show or movie and pondered a future with Travis as a mentor to a new protagonist.
