No More Heroes III is the latest game to be delayed by the ongoing pandemic. Originally intended for release this year, it’s now coming some time in 2021.
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Very little has been shared about the game after its initial reveal trailer, and even bigger companies like Nintendo have had to delay many of their games. The reveal trailer itself seemingly predicted this delay, with Travis ending on “2020 release? Good luck”.
Series director Suda51 shared news of No More Heroes III’s delay on his twitter account, stating that he and Grasshopper Manufacture have “decided to focus on prioritizing quality, and to therefore push back the final release date”.
In more positive news, Suda51 also shared artwork he commissioned from comic book illustrator Darick Robertson, titled “Demzamtiger & His Master”.
More game delays will probably end up being announced over the next few months, as companies continue to deal with the problems created by the pandemic.
