Suda51 has been talking up a storm about Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes lately, but that's not all the man has on his mind. Check out snippets concerning the potential for No More Heroes 3, ports of various games to Switch, an amiibo idea, and hopes for Travis Touchdown in Smash Bros..
On porting Killer 7 or the original No More Heroes to Switch
I definitely want to do that if possible. On the top of my list are No More Heroes 1 and 2. The IP is currently shared between Grasshopper Manufacture and Marvelous, so we are talking about how that´s possible.
On wanting Travis in Smash Bros.
If he has a chance to join the fray, he would be a very balanced character. I want to work very hard, so that Travis will be a candidate for the next Smash! I also think Travis would be a great rival for Bayonetta.
On plans already being laid out for No More Heroes 3
The truth is that I already have an outline prepared for No More Heroes 3 and if Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is successful it could really lead to that. The story of Travis Strikes Again is actually going to connect with what is going on in No More Heroes 3. Right now I'm focused on my new team, which is composed of veterans and new young staff members and Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is the first attempt for us to create a game. I want to give them more experience, so that when the time for No More Heroes 3 comes we'll do it right.
In order for Travis to stand a chance [against these powerful new foes in Travis Strikes Again] I wanted to give Travis the chance to enter these different game worlds and power up- to learn some new skills and gain some more strength so that ultimately I can work to make Travis a more prominent character in video game history overall. The skill chips that you saw Travis collecting in Travis Strikes Again’s game world, I want Travis to take those with him to the next game, the next numbered installment.”
On wanting to create a Travis amiibo
I even have a very concrete idea on what the amiibo will be like. I'm pretty confident that it's nothing that anyone would expect. People would probably imagine Travis holding the Beam Katana, but the amiibo I want to create is Travis saving his game while sitting on the toilet [a game mechanic featured in Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes].
