Suda51 talks chances of The Silver Case, Killer7, and Killer is Dead coming to Switch, wants to remake Flower, Sun, and Rain

Yes to all these, please!

Suda51 is currently working hard on No More Heroes 3, but that doesn't mean he's not thinking about what's coming next. If Suda51 has his way, he'll be able to tackle some ports and remakes for Switch.

Suda51 was one of the headliners for MomoCon, and he took fan questions during his appearance. One fan asked about some of Suda's previous works coming to Switch, and Suda had plenty to say on the topic. See what Suda51 had to share via his translator below.

“First off, Silver Case – that’s one game that he would love to release on the Switch. There have been discussions about it. At the moment, there’s nothing really concrete that he can say, but there have definitely been discussions about it, and he’s doing what he can to make that a reality.

As for other games – Killer7, put simply that’s pretty much up to Capcom. There’s not really a whole lot that Grasshopper can do about that, so again that’s pretty much in Capcom’s hands.

For Killer is Dead, that’s something that he would have to discuss thoroughly with Kadokawa Games. Different parts of the rights are kind of split up on that one.

But yeah, those are all titles that he would like to see come out on the Switch if possible. I guess right now, possibly the most realistic of those would be The Silver Case.”

Suda51 also mentioned Flower, Sun, an Rain, which came to the DS a number of years ago. Suda has been talking with a studio about a potential remake, but he needs a bit more time before he can officially say that a remake/re-release is coming.

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!

Suda51 says Travis is going to be a suplex machine in No More Heroes 3

Suplex city, bitch!

Its well known that Suda51 is a big wrestling fan. His love of wrestling can be seen in a ton of his games, especially the No More Heroes franchise. As you might have guessed, Suda51 is going to continue that tradition in No More Heroes 3.

In an interview with Siliconera, Suda51 talks about the suplex being one of his favorite wrestling moves. That love of the suplex is going to be on full display with Travis' moveset in No More Heroes 3.

The original Tiger Mask and Akira Maeda made me a fan with their suplexes. There’s nothing like a suplex performed with the proper form. I’ve always had a fascination with Akira Maeda and his repertoire of 12 different suplexes, so I’m letting Travis Touchdown use them all in the upcoming No More Heroes 3.

Check out "Dead Orca Force," a boss battle theme from No More Heroes 3

This track kicks ass!

While we've heard some tunes in the various trailers for No More Heroes 3, today we get our first real list to a tack from the game. This tune is called "Dead Orca Force," and it was composed by Nobuaki Kaneko. A version of this tune will appear in No More Heroes 3 as a boss battle theme.

The teams behind No More Heroes III's latest trailer have worked on some anime heavy-hitters

Definitely some series' you'll recognize

Except for the last few seconds, the majority of the No More Heroes 3 trailer from this year's Game Awards consisted of animated content. It certainly had a gorgeous look, and kept people wondering just what the trailer was promoting until near the end. Interested in finding out what teams Suda51 worked with to put that trailer together? Turns out a number of studios chipped in, and they've left their marks on some major anime series' over the years.

Kamikaze Douga

- worked on the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure openings for the first three seasons


- CGI movies for the Dragon Quest and Lupin III features that released this month


- work on Pop Team Epic

The trailer was also created with help from some talented animators who aren't tied to major anime projects. See who else contributed, alongside what they did for the trailer below.

Masanori Ushiki

- designed the aliens

Kenichiro Mizuno

- did the 2D animation in the second half of the trailer

Grasshopper says the situation concerning the logo animation for No More Heroes 3 has been resolved

No more troubles

Let's get you up to speed on this situation just incase you missed it. A new trailer for No More Heroes 3 was released at the 2019 Game Awards. Studio Plumeau saw the trailer and noticed that the logo animation seemed to be a rip-off of work they had done. They took to Twitter to share their concern, and word started to spread. A little detective work revealed that a third party selling After Effects packs had actually taken Studio Plumeau's work without their permission, and had been selling it to unsuspecting VFX artists.

Now we can pick up with the info we have today, which is the end of the mini-saga. Just to make things perfectly clear, Grasshopper took to Twitter to give a short comment on the entire situation. The good news is that all's well, and Grasshopper isn't in any trouble.

Studio Plumeau & Takuma Araki, the editor in charge, have discussed the issue of the animation FX & the matter has been officially resolved. We are extremely grateful for Studio Plumeau's acceptance & understanding.

The latest No More Heroes 3 trailer allegedly steals a logo animation (UPDATE)

A real...Travisty

UPDATE - Some good news to report, at least when it comes to Suda51 and his team. It appears that the animation wasn't actually stolen by whoever cut the trailer together. Evidence has surfaced showing that this animation can be downloaded as a 2D FX asset for After Effects. Apparently a digital service called Envato may have stolen the animation in the first place, and made it available as a seemingly legit animation/download for After Effects users. In other words, the blame doesn't rest on the No More Heroes gang, but instead, another team who were pulling some shady practices years ago. Thanks to Hannah and RobRmanX for the heads up!

________________Original Story Below________________

Say it ain't so, Suda51! As you can see in the tweet above, Studio Plumeau is claiming that the latest trailer for No More Heroes 3 has pilfered a logo animation that the studio created all the way back in 2013. The evidence is certainly quite damning, and it certainly looks like the animation was lifted. No one involved with No More Heroes 3 has responded to the claims as of this time.

Strawberry on the shortcake!

Suda51 is now deep into development on No More Heroes 3, but that doesn't mean he can't take some time to share a few new tidbits! Here's what the man himself had to say during an interview with Wccftech.

- the suit Travis uses in the trailer will be playable, but only in specific situations
- motion controls are once again reconfirmed
- Suda51 describes one of the bosses as "Thanos. Venom. Joker"
- Suda51 has made games with bigger budgets before, so this won't be the biggest yet
- the real challenge has been figuring out how to best use the Switch, as there are some interesting new possibilities
- Nobuaki Kaneko will do the whole soundtrack
- the game is still on-course for a 2020 release
- a trailer will come out later this year, or early next year
