It's not the first time that Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi Suda (Suda51) has spoken about the possibility of developing a No More Heroes 3, but at E3 2011, the video game designer confirmed that the third instalment in the No More Heroes series is indeed coming to Wii U.
Speaking to Destructoid, Suda51 threw some ideas around that were conceived the moment he tried the Wii U controller at the expo. Speaking through a translator, he said:
When I was at the Nintendo booth yesterday and today, I had the chance to take the Wii U into my own hands and as soon as I grabbed it, things started scrolling in my head, and... I don't know if it's going to be, like, one male character... it seems like maybe there's a possibility that I could come up with some ideas, so... I'll leave it at that for now, but, we'll see what happens. Of course, I can't reveal who that guy is in my head.
In a previous interview with 1UP, Suda51 clarified that the story for Travis Touchdown was finished and that he wanted to explore new ideas and characters:
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.
