Suda51 Says He Would Like To Make No More Heroes 3 If Travis Strikes Again Does Well

Last week, Grasshopper Manufacture announced a new title in the No More Heroes series called Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes.


During a recent interview with VideoGameChooChoo, director Suda51 gave a little more insight into what kind of game Travis Strikes Again is, as well as where the game falls in the timeline in relation to the series’ past two entries. Suda51 also noted that, if the game proves successful, then he would “definitely want to put out a 3 someday.”


Here’s a look at more of Suda51’s commentary:


“Well again, it’s not a direct sequel to No More Heroes 2, though they are directly related and take place in the same universe. Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes takes place seven years after the events of No More Heroes 2. As you’ve probably noticed it’s ‘Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes’, so ‘No More Heroes’ is more a subtitle, there’s not a number on it. This isn’t a direct sequel and it’s not No More Heroes 3, but it does address some of the things that happened in No More Heroes 1 and 2. While it is sort of a continuation of that stuff, it is not a direct sequel partially because No More Heroes is about one assassin against other assassins, and this isn’t like that. This isn’t exactly a spin-off, or something like that, and while it’s not a direct sequel it is something of a stepping stone on the road to No More Heroes 3. So the way I’d like people to think of this game is like the beginning of a new battle for Travis, a new series within the series.”
