No More Heroes III Trailer Confirms a Favorite Character, Original Games Now on Switch


Nintendo just dropped a surprise Nintendo Direct Mini, and it included a new trailer for the anticipated No More Heroes III. This is basically our first real look at gameplay (previously trailers have mainly focused on cinematics), and it looks like the series’ trademark Beam Katana action and big boss fights are fully intact. We also get a first peek at a fan-favorite character – yes, it seems Shinobu will be back in some (hopefully playable) form. Check out the trailer for yourself, below.
