Travis Strikes Again In The New Year

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is on its way to an exclusive launch on the Switch, and we now know when to expect it. Previously announced for a 2018 release, a tweet from Nintendo today revealed that the quirky hero’s new adventure will begin on January 18, 2019.

The new game from Grasshopper Manufacture (directed by Suda51) sees the titular hero drawn into a corrupted video game console, leading to what sounds like a surreal adventure through eerily familiar video game landscapes as Travis aims to squash bugs in the code. The game is also set to include cooperative play with an additional player.

Gameplay Footage OF The Sinking City Keeps You Uncomfortable

The Sinking City had a number of CG trailers to set the tone, but the first gameplay footage of the game gives us a better idea of the way the game plays and, of course, a heaping helping of tone to go along with it, too. 

There's a minute or so of gameplay here being narrated by a developer at Frogwares, showing a bit of a quest and a NPC. Check out the footage below.

The footage is cool, interesting, and mildly horrifying. The first character, with her lips sewn up, is genuinely kind of disturbing to look at. I really dig the ethereal flashback segments, as well.

The trailer, which you find below, shows familiar Spelunky gameplay amped to 11. Shotguns, running, rideable animals, ghosts that freeze shopkeepers, A GUN THAT SHOOTS OUT CATS, and more are present in the first footage of the sequel.

Additionally, PSBlog has helpfully posted an interview with Spelunky creator Derek Yu with gives us a few details on the game. Yu mostly points out that the game will be an extension of the first title and they have been adding more and more to make it feel new and instantly familiar to fans.
