Want to see No More Heroes on the 360 or the PS3 someday? I wouldn’t blame you if you had your hopes up. Suda 51 (the game’s creator) has said many times that he’d like to bring the series to one or more of the HD consoles. Or did he?
In the latest entry of 1up’s Suda 51 week, the enigmatic punk programmer reveals that previous interviews concerning No More Heroes’ HD future were mistranslated. From the interview-“What I wanted to say was, looking at the Wii, I think No More Heroes 2 will probably be the last iteration for this current platform. But there’s probably going to be a “Wii 2” or other next-gen system from Nintendo at some point, so I was saying that I would want to do another game in the series on the next Nintendo platform.” No mention of the 360 or the PS3 anywhere to be found, though a multi-platform release would likely make sense.
Suda also goes on the say that No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle ends Travis Touchdown’s story for good, and if future NMH games are produced, they’ll star someone else. Again, this totally contradicts info from prior Suda interviews, where the fickle gamesmith reported that he wants Travis to become a huge gaming star, to appear in multiple titles for years to come.
So, what can we take away from all this? Just two things; game developers are totally unpredictable, and “fickle gamesmith” is the most awesome sounding thing you’ve read all day.
