Originally a Nintendo Switch exclusive, No More Heroes III will become a multi-platform release with PS5, PS4 versions launching on 11th October 2022. A new trailer reveals the release date along with loads of new footage specific to the updated current-gen versions. We know the PS5 version will run at 60 frames-per-second with a native 4K resolution.

The confirmed release date means No More Heroes III will arrive on western shores five days after Japan, which had its launch day announced last month. "Being the number-one assassin in the world isn’t what it used to be. Otaku hero Travis Touchdown is back once more, forced out of retirement to defend Santa Destroy — and Earth — in an intergalactic test of might while proving he’s more than just a has-been who talks to his cat."

A physical copy of the game costs £49.99/$59.99, which will give you the Day One Edition. This includes the game — on a physical BluRay disc, even — a 70-page artbook, soundtrack, and a custom biker license plate.

When our sister site Nintendo Life reviewed the Nintendo Switch version, it awarded an 8/10 and concluded: "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."
