To decide Earth’s fate, FU establishes the Galactic Superhero Rankings, made up of the galaxy’s most deadly alien assassins – AKA, the buddies he made while incarcerated at the Blackhole Prison.
Never one to back down from a fight, Travis must work his way back up the rankings and reclaim his title….oh, and save the planet!

The open world returns, as does so much of that scattershot humour, in this uneven but enjoyable sequel.
IGN - 6/10
No More Heroes 3 is an amusing but extremely uneven sequel only likely to appeal to Suda 51 diehards – and even for that audience, it takes several steps backward from the likes of No More Heroes 1 and 2. Combat can occasionally find its flow, particularly during its entertaining boss battles, but poor technical performance and the barebones tedium between them make this a lackluster homecoming for Grasshopper Manufacture’s flagship series.
NintendoLife - 8/10
No More Heroes III has the faults of both its mainline predecessors – it’s a little more tedious than No More Heroes 2, and a little less meaningful than No More Heroes. It makes up for this, however, by being another inarguably impressive, balls-to-the-wall carnage-fest, a blood-spattered love letter to excess, and a Suda51 fan’s wet dream splashed across the Switch. The story it tells is cool. The game it plays is cool. Neither of these crucial aspects reach the heights of the series' Nintendo Wii origins, but nobody who truly gets No More Heroes could reasonably be disappointed with this third incarnation. The joke’s beginning to wear thin, but it’s all in the telling. And Suda51 can still spin a very fine yarn.
