Nintendo Switch eShop plays home to a familiar name in games this week: Travis Touchdown, the Japan-obsessed antihero of Goichi “Suda51” Suda’s No More Heroes series. Grasshopper Manufacture’s Travis Strikes Again is the buzziest name on the new releases list, an otherwise light load.
Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes isn’t a sequel to the older Wii games, so much as another adventure into Travis’ trademark imagination (that of a very horny otaku). This time, he’s fighting his way through levels inspired by an abundance of indie games. Expect references to faves like Hotline Miami and Hollow Knight, as well as all kinds of fandom odds and ends. This is Suda’s love letter to the industry, in a sense, even if it’s more fun in theory than practice.
The rest of the new games list through next Wednesday, Jan. 23, is below:
