Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes

Linkage 

If you've ever played No More Heroesyou'll likely remember it as one of the craziest video games ever made. It was one of the few M rated games for the family-friendly Nintendo Wii and featured a rock and roll, otaku, pro-wrestling protagonist in the character of Travis Touchdown. The original game contained a song, Heavenly Star by Genki Rockets, and that song is part of fandom's love for the game. And, it's not there it the new re-release of the series on the Switch. How much do we wanna bet that's because of some bullshit licensing thing?
