Suda51 Talks 'No More Heroes 2'


Posted December 26, 2008 - By Patrick Roche-Sowa

Suda51, the bizarre creative genius behind games like Killer 7 and No More Heroes, took some time to discuss what he's been working on with his development company, Grasshopper Manufacture, with gaming blog GameSetWatch this week. Touching on things like the open world aspect of No More Heroes and the parallel story lines of the sequel that will follow, as well as mirror, those of Travis Touchdown, Suda51 made it clear that nothing will stand in the way of his creative vision.

"Yeah, we'll once again manage to do what we want to do with realizing the open world, but expect big changes for No More Heroes 2's open world...The world of No More Heroes should have more parallel stories running at the same time. The evolution of Travis -- I still have some stuff to write about with him and his growth."

Suda51 also explained why he's sticking with the Wii, as opposed to moving to something like the Xbox 360 that has a much larger catalogue of mature action games.

"One of the main reasons why we're back on Wii is because of the controller. When we released the first one on Wii, you had this feeling just finished with moving the controller; it was really good. So, if we released it on Xbox 360, for example, we'd have to rethink this feeling. I wanted to keep the game's controller gimmick, so that's why the fighting was more fitting on Wii, rather than on other platforms."

I can't wait to see what kind of crazy, twisted, awesome experience comes out of Suda51's brain this time. Sign me up.
