Grasshopper's stylish No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle promises to be a bigger and badder game than its predecessor, but where does it go from there?
Speaking to Edge, series creator Suda51 explained some of his plans for the currently Wii-exclusive franchise's future:
I really want to make NMH a big franchise and with this second episode have bigger success. I’m putting a lot of care into developing this IP, as I feel there’s a lot of potential.
Based on the additions to Desperate Struggle, it's pretty clear Suda is trying his damnedest to reach that potential. Unfortunately, it appears the series' current platform is holding him back some.
I think this is the last NMH that is going to be developed on Wii. To expand NMH to new possibilities, we need a new platform. Wii is a great platform, but we’ve done everything we can with it now.
While it may be disheartening to some Wii gamers to learn that a great exclusive franchise is jumping ship, the multiplatformers among us will surely have nothing but good things to look forward too. At least the series promises to go out on Wii with a bang.
