Grasshopper Manufacture has announced that Nintendo Switch exclusive No More Heroes 3 has been delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

No More Heroes 3 was due out on Nintendo Switch later this year, but according to Grasshopper, the coronavirus pandemic has impacted the development of the game.

In a statement posted to Twitter, game director Goichi Suda (Suda51) says:

“All staff members at Grasshopper have been working as hard as possible on developing the game in hopes of releasing it in 2020, but the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have unfortunately proven to be a real body blow to our schedule, causing unforeseen delays in development. Now that we have managed to get back on our feet with development, we have decided to focus on prioritising quality, and to therefore push back the final release date.”

The silver lining to the announcement is confirmation that Darick Robertson, the acclaimed comic book artist and illustrator behind The Boys, will be contributing art to the game.

No More Heroes 3 is the follow-up to two titles the studio released for the Nintendo Wii in 2007 and 2010. A spin-off, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, is currently available on Nintendo Switch, PC, and PlayStation 4.
