The stylish cult classics made by SUDA51 are now coming to the Nintendo Switch digitally via the Nintendo eShop in North America. To celebrate the return of these titles, XSEED Games is offering 10 percent launch discount off the $19.99 price for each game until November 14.

In No More Heroes, Travis Touchdown starts off as the #11 ranked assassin in the United Assassins Association (UAA), and with his trusty beam katana must face off against the world’s top 10 assassins. He rides the streets of Santa Destroy on his signature motorbike, the Schpeltiger, and packs an arsenal of pro-wrestling moves honed from years of watching wrestlers power bomb and body slam each other. It’s a long way to the top, but the all-American otaku won’t stop until he’s the #1 assassin in the world, baby!
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle takes place three years after Travis achieves his goal of being the #1 assassin in the UAA. However, time has not been kind to him, and he finds himself falling down the ranks to #51. Adding to his problems is Skelter Helter, another assassin who has sworn revenge on Travis for the death of his brother. With his trusty beam katanas in-hand for twice the hacking and slashing, and teamed up with his allies Shinobu and Henry Cooldown, Travis is on a mission to reclaim his #1 position and fend off new challengers. An otaku at heart though, there’s always time for retro 8-bit minigames to help him earn some money and power up!
