No More Heroes 3 is no longer coming later this year as planned. Director Goichi Suda revealed Wednesday over on Twitter that Grasshopper Manufacture is reluctantly delaying the game in a hope to be an excellent Nintendo Switch exclusive.

No More Heroes 3 was revealed last year as part of E3’s Nintendo Direct. Initially, the studio aimed to bring fans the return of the franchise as a Switch exclusive this year. COVID-19, however, shook up their work schedules and were forced to change their workflow, leading to 2021 being its new release year.
In related and more positive news, the well-off comic book artist, Darick Robertson, who is best known for his work on The Boys, joined the crew as an illustrator. No concrete release date has been set – only its year.
