Killer7 was one of the fabled "Capcom Five", a selection of titles that the Japanese publisher pledged would be exclusive to the GameCube. As we all know, that claim didn't last long; out of the five, only P.N.03 remained Nintendo-only, with Dead Phoenix being canned in 2003 and the remaining three - Viewtiful Joe, Resident Evil 4 and Killer7 - all coming to the rival PlayStation 2.
Killer7 was perhaps the most unusual of the released games, a stylish action adventure title from Goichi "Suda51" Suda, who would later work on No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw and Killer is Dead.
Speaking in an interview with Hardcore Gamer, Suda admitted that Killer7 is perhaps the hardest of his games to play, and he has the desire to remedy that situation by returning to the concept:
HG: Basically, you are staying faithful to the vision so that new audiences can see it as intended. That's exciting. Are there any other old works that you have done that you are hoping to revisit, to give this type of remastering treatment?
Suda51: I feel that Killer7 is the hardest of my games to play. I want to and feel that I need to do something about that. A remake, or remaster or something like that… (Sly grin.)
So, nothing to confirm, but something that you are really hoping for?
Unfortunately, it's up to Capcom to allow something like this. As far as I am concerned, I would like to do something like this, but I cannot say for certain that it will actually be done…
I think Capcom would like the money…
(Laughs) It would be really awesome if I was able to do something with Killer7 again. I would be really happy if everyone showed their support. Capcom was really supportive of the title and I would imagine that they would be open to the idea if interest was shown. Again, no concrete plans yet, but it is a possibility.
