Suda Clarifies No More Wii For No More Heroes
Posted by Jon Wahlgren
Third installment will be for Nintendo's eventual next console
In early July, punk game designer Goicha Suda, perhaps better known as Suda51, commented on future games in developer Grasshopper's No More Heroes series, saying that he believed sequel Desperate Struggle would be the last one on Wii.
It appears that the gaming media, Nintendo Life included, were a bit shortsighted on what he meant and assumed Suda was implying that the series would hop ship to the Xbox 360 and/or PS3.
Speaking to 1UP, Suda explains that wasn't what he meant at all:
Actually, I answered differently, and it may have been misinterpreted. 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.
So Nintendo is in for future sequels, but Travis Touchdown, the star of the show, is set to take his final bow in Desperate Struggle.
I want to continue the No More Heroes series, but I've finished the story for Travis. It's completely finished in No More Heroes 2. So I want to think of a different story — a different character, or something like that within the series — starting on the next Nintendo platform.
