Tak Fuji talks No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise

I was lucky to talk a lot of great developers at E3 this year, but only one of them was kind enough to rub his dreadlocks on me. That was Konami’s Tak Fuji, the man best known for talking about one million troops at last year’s Konami press conference.

We got to catch up about his work on No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise, the PS3 port of the Wii cult classic. His respect for Suda51 (No More Heroes’s creator) his interest on bringing No More Heroes 2 to the PS3, and the four other games he’s working on, are all highlights of the discussion.

As one of our Youtube readers said, it’s just fun to listen to Tak Fuji talk, regardless of what he’s talking about. If I ever get my own talk show, I’m going to do whatever it takes to make Tak Fuji my Ed McMahon/Andy Richter.
