Already announced earlier this year, we have our first trailer for the new No More Heroes game:
Offical PR. Sounds like the indie games will be themes for levels.

Oh hell yes. I'm assuming this takes place after Desperate Struggle but before the frame story.

Oh, Bad Girl has a dad. And he's out for blood.
Anyway, I have one more reason to own a Switch when the time comes.
No, The Bad.
Seeing Marvelous as publisher gives me too much hope for something.
The music was making it kind of hard to tell what they were saying, but I'll be damned if it wasn't dope af.
But holy crap, Bad Girl had a dad who wants Travis' head. Talk about evil having parents who would beat the tar out of their murderer.
Also, did anyone notice what the Bad said about a Death Drive Mk. 2? As in a version of the gaming system from Let It Die?
Dudes, might we get an encounter with Uncle Death?!

First off, I love how The Bad references Bad Girl's instant kill.
Second, was that helmet a mockup of Dark Star's helmet? I have to do some closer comparisons.
Third, something about that retro game reminded me of something... is that a riff on some other Grasshopper game that's escaping my memory?
Regarding the third thing:
Judging by the music that was faintly playing, the game Travis (or rather his decoy) was playing must have been Hotline Miami, which isn't by Grasshopper Manufacture, but is well regarded in the indie community as an ultra-violent Nintendo Hard game.

Why would Travis want to play a game about a dude who follows orders from his answering machine to go out and murder specific people for money? Isn't that a bit too much like his day job?
In his defense, it's possible that he was expecting someone to find him and kick his ass, so he could've just had a dummy and put on a game if only to keep up the illusion.
It's also possible that he finds challenge in Hotline Miami in that A, you don't have access to a laser sword and B, you go down in literally one hit. In his day job, he can take a few hits, but unless it was specific cases like Bad Girl's one-hit kill attack, he doesn't go down in one shot.
Then again, we might be overthinking it a bit.
I mean, Travis could see it the same way most of us see games like Stardew Valley or Animal Crossing- it's simple everyday life in video game form, and it's sure as heck more relaxing than trying to do the real thing any day.
Then why did you post on the thread then?
If all you have is negativity over a game that hasn't even shown gameplay yet, then there's no point in commenting at all in a pointlessly negative way other then to be a dick.

It's against the rules to enter a thread just to complain.
This game will be a Hack and Slash, right? I've never played the first game but this sounds really fun.
I don't think there's a way to play it on modern consoles, unfortunately, but yeah, the first two were decent hack and slashes with godlike soundtracks.
They're laying on the meta elements a little thick but that's been a thing Suda's been all about since the 2nd game.
Still think it's silly they're trying to appeal to the indie crowd(???) but I'll give it a shot when it comes out.
I'm rather excited for this one, especially if they decide to re-release the previous two games for the Switch.
I was only every able to play the first game cause it was on the PS 3 but sadly never the second.
Imagine how crazy the Assassin's will be here.
I am mainly interested in learning what indie games will be hacked and slashed by Travis. We know that Hotline Miami is one of them. Any speculations?
Considering the previous 2 games had mini games that are very Indie Game esque, it kinda makes sense.
As long as theirs another bullet hell mini game, I'd be happy with it.
The "big" ones
Super Meat Boy; might be some kind of weird RPG-verse type deal as a shoutout to Undertale, since it's very popular in both Japan and the US's nerd culture circles; A Mega Man-esque thing that takes pot shots at Mighty No. 9...
are my guesses.
a Pseudo 3-d Platformer that takes potshots at Yooka Layle seems like one that would happen too, probably.
I'm personally more interested in the possibility that this might tie into Let It Die to be honest. Could Travis have introduced Uncle Death to anime?
