Travis Strikes Again Is Coming to PS4/Steam - Will No Longer Be A Nintendo Switch Exclusive

Suda51 announced at Momocon to say that Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is breaking free from the Switch to come to PS4 and Steam.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes will soon be available on systems other than the Nintendo Switch, as Suda51 has confirmed that the game will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Steam in the future.

The first two No More Heroes games were released for the Nintendo Wii, but the series vanished for several years while Suda51 worked on other games. Suda51 appeared on the stage during the initial reveal for the Nintendo Switch and promised that a new game in the No More Heroes series was in development, though it may not be a direct sequel. The game was later revealed to be Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, which was different from the other games in the series as it was more of a hack and slash title with arcade elements.

It seems that Travis' time on the Nintendo Switch may have been intended to be limited from the start, as Suda51 announced at Momocon 2019 that Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Steam in the future. The multiplatform release for Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes also means that a potential third entry in the No More Heroes series might appear on systems other than the Nintendo Switch.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes isn't the only game from the Nintendo Switch reveal event to jump ship to other systems, as Octopath Traveler is also abandoning its Nintendo-exclusivity and is becoming available on Steam in June. It's likely that the multiplatform release for both games is due to opposite reasons, as Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes reviewed poorly and quickly went on sale, suggesting that it didn't sell well, while Octopath Traveler was a critical darling and shortages of the game were widespread. It's possible that both games needed to outgrow the Nintendo Switch for very different reasons, as Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes needs to reach a wider audience to recoup its costs, while Octopath Traveler needs the PC audience to help it become an independent franchise.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is currently available for the Nintendo Switch and will be available for PlayStation 4 and Steam in the future.
