From the very first interview Suda51 gave on No More Heroes 3, he said the game was going to be for the fans. It's a very important thread in the development of this game. In an interview with Polygon, Suda51's interpreter furthers that point, but also makes sure to let people know that Suda is also going to add in his own ideas as well.
“One thing that he was really made to realize with Travis Strikes Again was [that] it is really important to listen to what the fans want. Again, not just to make it a game that will sell, but to make a game that the people who you want to enjoy the game are going to be able to enjoy it.
It’s not that he’s going to be making this game based on just what the fans want. He’s obviously got his own vision of what the game is going to be like, what he wants it to be like, and when he says he wants to make the game for the fans, he doesn’t just want to make the game that they are expecting. The game that he wants to make is the kind of game that fans are expecting and the kind of game the fans want. He wants to not just [...] answer those wishes and those requests. He wants to go above and beyond that and [get to work] putting in the shit that they want to see — give them all this extra shit that they probably don’t even know what they wanted or they wouldn’t even be expecting.”
Another topic Suda51 has touched on in interviews about the game is motion controls. While No More Heroes 3 can be played with traditional controls all the way through, Suda51 thinks choosing motion controls is the purest way to play.
“Not only are there going to be motion controls in the game, but he feels that using the motion controls — detaching the two controllers from the Switch — and using those kind of like those old school Wii controllers, he feels that’s going to be the purest or true way to play the game.”
Finally, how on earth do you get people to check out No More Heroes 3 when they have no idea what the series is about? Suda51 does his best to explain the series in terms that only he can.
“Put really simply...it’s a game where you’ve got kind of a Star Wars-style lightsaber, and you take that lightsaber and you slice dudes in half. Pretty much anything comes in front of your eyeballs, you just kill the shit out of them as much as possible.”
