Nintendo revealed during its Nindies stream today that a new No More Heroes is coming to the Switch in 2018. No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again will put the series’ hero inside his gaming console and into the world of Hotline Miami, the indie title that took its inspiration from Grand Theft Auto’s earlier installments.

No More Heroes is from fame game designer Suda51‘s Grasshopper Manufacture. Suda51 is known for stylistic and violent action games like No More Heroes and Lollipop Chainsaw.

Suda51, real name Goichi Suda, helped to make Grasshoper Manufacture a recognizable studio. The developer and Suda51 have a history of working on Nintendo systems. Suda51’s Killer7, which came out for the GameCube in 2005, was a breakout title for him and the studio.

The first No More Heroes came out for Wii in 2008. It had one sequel in 2010. Travis Strikes Again will be the franchises first new installment since then.
