Last month, Marvelous began sharing some videos for No More Heroes 3, showcasing some of the elements and gameplay mechanics of the game. The first one was about the Beam Katana (and the unique way to recharge its batteries), the second one showcased two mechanics of the battle system (Emergency Evade and Weapon Clash), the third one was about Slashes & Death Blows, the fourth one about Death Kick & Death Force, the fifth one about Death Rain & Death Slow, the sixth one about Mustang Mode & Throw Mode, and the seventh one about Full Armor Travis.
The latest video showcases another gameplay element called the Retry Roulette. Sometimes, you will face enemies that are far stronger than you expected, and you will get a Game Over. If that happens, you have two choices:
- Returning to the Motel
If you choose to Retry, you will trigger the Retry Roulette. You can try your luck and get various buffs based on which part of the roulette the dot stops on. You can get buffs such as invicibility, attack power up, and more. But you can also get some “debuffs”: for example, if you land on Jess Baptiste VI (Goddamn Unlucky), you get to restart with your Beam Katana completely out of energy!
Here’s the video:
No More Heroes 3 (Switch) comes out on August 27th worldwide.
