Nintendo had a surprise hit to round out its Nindies Summer Showcase this week. As announced on the stream, Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture are back at it with the reveal of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes.

The game’s even more outside-the-box than usual. Made by a partnership between Grasshopper Manufacture and several different indie developers, the game will actually delve into six different indie games. Set seven years after the original No More Heroes, the game features The Bat—seeking revenge for the death of his daughter, Bad Girl—and, of course, our eponymous hero, Travis. A fight between the two sees them both sucked into a phantom game console, where they’ll have to beat all six games and their respective bosses to escape.

“Just like the original cult classic, players will have to battle through multiple punk-rock levels and defeat over-the-top bosses,” Nintendo wrote (via RollingStone).

The indie games seem promising, with a cameo from Hotline Miami in the trailer, though we don’t know the full extent of who’s on board yet.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is expected to release in 2018, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.

Emma’s early gaming was mostly done in secret, as the only gamer in a family of normal people. She still retains skills from this dark period in her life, such as the ability to teleport instantly across the house away from the computer, and holds a gold medal in the Olympic sport of “Hide the Gameboy.” Sorry, Mom, now you know.
