No More Heroes 3 was supposed to come out later this year, but an update from developers Grasshopper now says it’ll be sliding into 2021 thanks to, well, all of this.
“The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have unfortunately proven to be a real body blow to our schedule”, the statement says, “ causing unforeseen delays in development”.
