Suda51 is one of the most unique voices in the game industry. He’s got an unmistakable style across all of his games, and you’ll get to see that once again in the upcoming Shadows of the Damned: Hella Remastered. This title originally released back in 2011, but this Hella Remastered version is the first time Nintendo fans will get a crack at the game.

In an interview with Dtoid, Suda51 spoke to Nintendo fans directly in order to explain what Shadows of the Damned: Hella Remastered is all about. In typical Suda51 fashion, he described the game with a viewpoint pretty much no one else would come up with, likening it to the Super Mario Bros. series.

One thing that I wanted to say is there’s probably a lot of people out there who don’t really fully grasp exactly what Shadows of the Damned is about. So to put it in super simple terms, in the story you’ve got Garcia who is a demon hunter, and he’s got the love of his life, Paula who is kidnapped and taken away to Hell by Flemming, this badass demon. And so Garcia and his buddy Johnson traverse the deepest depths of Hell to take out Flemming and get Paula back. To put it in even simpler terms, maybe for the Nintendo fans out there, if Garcia is like Mario, then Flemming would be like Bowser. Paula would be like Peach and then Johnson is basically Luigi. Basically, you’ve got the same exact love triangle as Mario. It’s pretty much the same exact story. It’s like Super Mario Bros., but in Hell. (laughter).


While Suda51 might think Shadows of the Damned: Hella Remastered is akin to Mario, there’s one big difference. Mario games are fun for the whole family, but Shadows of the Damned: Hella Remastered very much isn’t. That’s why Suda51 wants to make sure parents keep their kids very far away from this one!

…I want all the families out there who have kids and Switches is to maybe make sure your kid hasn’t purchased the game or hasn’t ripped it off from somebody or something. Just because I don’t want to and can’t take responsibility if there’s a bunch of kids running around going “Big Boner! Big Boner!” (laughter). “Where’d you learn that word?” Parents, that’s not your kids’ fault. You should be better parents (laughter).
