Suda muses on creating a console defining Switch game like he did with No More Heroes

No More Heroes really shook up the action space. Although I prefer the sequel's 2D retro minigames over the first's "job" system, the original really nailed it when it came to characterization. It has some of the best bosses in gaming,...   read

I've heard people clamoring about Little King's Story ever since its release in 2009. "It's a great Pikmin-esque experience!" and "It's so cute and charming, you gotta play it!" they'd say. I'm not exactly sure why I didn't get around ...   read
