No More Heroes 3 mod

A new mod for No More Heroes 3 has been released by YouTube user Nikk Mann. The mod increases the resolution of the game on Yuzu/Ryunjinx. The resolution can increase up to 4K quality graphics and will add effects such as Motion Blur and Screen Space Reflections. Nikk describes this mod as "How it'll look if they release a PC port".

You can watch the video showcasing the improvements below.

The mod uses Unreal Engine commands that are executed through the game's configuration file. With this, the game is allowed to:

  • Greatly increase the draw distance quality in the open world
  • Increase the quality of all graphical effects
  • Force max Unreal engine settings for PC games (Bloom, Depth of Field, Lens Flares, Ambient Occlusion, etc.)
  • Enable higher quality temporal Anti-Aliasing to fix jagged edges and image stability issues
  • Increase texture quality to the highest available by the game
  • Enable x16 Anisotropic Filtering to increase texture quality at further distances
  • Increase the quality and render distance of shadows
  • Enable Screen Space Reflections and the modder's own tuned per-object Motion Blur.
  • Other fixes

The modder also included a few comparison screenshots that allow you to view the difference between the modified version of the game and the normal version. While the mod introduces various improvements toward the overall experience, per-object shadows (character’s limbs and hair casting shadows on the character themselves) get disabled during cutscenes, and the maximum framerate in cutscenes and the open-world sections is limited to 30 FPS.
