Another game’s development suffered from COVID-19. This time is Grasshopper’s No More Heroes 3.
In an announcement, Grasshopper Manufacture’s Director Suda 51, has decided to push the final release window to 2021.

While this is unfortunate, sadly it cannot be helped. The pandemic has taken a toll on everyone and it has affected the game industry as a whole. While many and myself want the experience the next chapter of Travis Touchdown, it will have to wait to 2021. Plus it will give more time to improve and polish up the game. So again Suda ask for your patience till then.
It is not all bad news though. To soften the blow, Suda has also shared that Darick Robertson of The Boys fame, will be joining in on the project to provide for the game. Suda has revealed one stylish artwork as such.
So while it is currently delayed, at least we got a renowned artist to help with the game to further bring out the punk flair of No More Heroes. Suda also said they will reveal more information as it becomes ready.
Thankfully for Switch fans, there are a handful of games being released for the Switch, including Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, and Bravely Default II. Assuming they don’t get delayed.
So until 2021, No More Heroes fans.
