The song itself is fine, it's just that the sound mixing is off. The voices should be louder.
Yeah, I was gonna say, the sound mixing on that trailer was preeeeetttyy bad. But I am excited to see more NMH by this point. And will admit the gimmick is, definitely *interesting*. There's a lot of fucking weird potential in that hook. (I am not sure how to take the possibility of, like, a Grasshopperverse emerging from this game with the inclusion of the Death Drive from Let It Die. Given than I imagine it will all be take with super irrelevance, it'll probably be fine, but it's a more deep weird twist than I would've expected. And also makes it feel pretty certain that the Tower of Barbs will be one of the final levels, right?)
Oddly enough, the voices sound clearer on my phone, so make of that what you will.
Huh looking at the games bio, this is indeed a very different plotline.
I wonder if The Bad will be playable.
@10 Yeah, the style is certainly reminiscent of that... but upon thinking about it, the actual scene depicted kinda reminds me of Killer Is Dead. It'd be... interesting, to say the least, if there was some sort of connection (even in a Mutually Fictional way) between Grasshopper games.
@11 Hey, some people like a Busman's Holiday. Besides, it's not his job anymore - he took down the UAA.
@21 I mean, if I were to hope for an indie game to get the NMH treatment, I'd root for Rogue Legacy.
Not strictly an indie game, but considering Travis's thing for anime, someone somewhere suggested a Senran Kagura game. Could have some fun satirical potential.
Hey, both games will be under the same publisher.

I wonder how possible a Fire Pro Wrestling level would be. Seems like it'd be right up Suda's alley.
If by "right up his alley," you mean "Suda 51 directed two installments of the series," then yes.
More info on the game.
It's a midquel taking place after the first game. Travis and the bad guy get Trapped in TV Land.
Also, the game's title is actually Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes.

So they're getting sucked into the game, and it happens to be one of the Death Drives?
Yep, Uncle Death's gonna make an appearance for sure at some point...
What are the chances they'll release the previous 2 No More Heroes games for the Switch?
Ah, so this is a story of Travis after he walked away from the top spot and became the No More Hero, but before Skelter Helter and Jasper Batt Jr dragged him into Desperate Struggle's revenge plot.
Also, this means this is all before Travis has his revelation about the assassin business and decides to dismantle it, so we're not exactly getting a super-noble Travis in this game.
Im sorry to say it, but I kinda like Travis when he's a garbage fire of a human.
This video says that it is a proper sequel to 2. 4 years after the 2nd game and 7 after the first.
Also, the game's not simply alluding to indie games. Apparently actual indie developers are lending their support to it, including the Hot Line Miami developers and the folks behind Shovel Knight.
Suda claimed during his somewhat rambling interview way back when the game was first announced alongside other Switch titles that he wanted to use the Switch to unite indie and major titles with it.

Considering Marvelous AQL is the publisher, maybe we can see Travis get into the Senran Kagura world and he can finally live out his dream of Moe and Big Boobs?

I am interested to see if Travis keeps his regular model when he's in the indie games or if his model changes to fit the game.
See, I hear Marvelous AQL, and my first thought is of Half-Minute Hero.
The idea of traveling to other video game worlds kinda makes it sound like a Rated M Kingdom Hearts, which is kinda hilarious.
Yeah, never played one of these games, but I've run into some of the songs and character designs and thought they were cool. If they could get the other 2 games on the Switch, I might fork over the cash for it.
Guess we're going to have to change this thread's title to Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, since the video establishes that that's the official title of the game and not No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again like a lot of us thought.
By the way, did anyone ever manage to come up with an edited version of the first trailer so that the music doesn't drown out a lot of the dialogue?
Suda 51 interview.
This tweet makes it sound like Robin Atkin Dawnes is NOT coming back as Travis due to the VA strike.
VA strike? What's this?
Damn this VA strike.
Its fucking with Injustice & now its fucking with this game.
Could have fooled me. The voice in the trailer sounded like him.
That could be the reason, but it's hard to say exactly.

Actually, it sounds more like Robin Atkins Downes is trying to start a campaign to convince Suda (or whoever deals with voice actor stuff for Grasshopper Manufacture's games) to comply with the VA's demand for more pay.
At least, that's how I read the tweet. I could be hilariously wrong.
But yes, Mr. Suda, don't leave Robin in the dust.
Note to anyone: apparently we don't have a page for Robin Atkins Downes in this website. Someone should rectify that...
