Games Radar managed to catch up with No More Heroes creator Suda51 and talk to him about a range of topics. One of the things that came up with what it was like bringing a title to the Nintendo Switch with Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes which is destined for the Nintendo Switch this year. You can read his full comments below.
GamesRadar+: Everyone’s asking you about a Killer7 remaster nonstop, I imagine. Which is the remaster YOU would most like to see from a company that isn’t Grasshopper?
Goichi Suda: A recent example of one I liked would be Burnout Paradise Remastered. I really like Burnout, so there’s Burnout Revenge, Burnout 1, 2, 3… I’d like all of them to be remastered as one package. I’m so used to thinking about my own games that it’s hard to get out of that mindset… Ah! Bully! Rockstar! I would love to see them make a remaster of Bully. I’d love to play it on modern hardware. I love open-world; that size of open-world is a great size. Bigger sizes like Red Dead are really cool too, but that small-town feel is something I really like. It’s just like how Travis lives in the small town of Santa Destroy – it’s that same feeling.
Is Bully your favorite open-world game of all time?
No, no… Red Dead Redemption. That was an amazing game. I’m really looking forward to Red Dead Redemption 2 coming out. I’m also praying that the release timing for that and Travis Strikes Again are not similar. [laughs] The styles are different, but… you know.
Do you think Switch has become the premiere console for indie games in general?
I’d love for that to be the case. The thing is, most creators grow up playing Nintendo. And there’s a special relationship between a lot of players and creators and Nintendo. So having a game that you create coming out on a Nintendo system is something of a dream come true. It’s like you’ve made it, in a way. So if this is the pattern and the cycle, it’s a great thing, and I’d love to see more of it. Even as a creator, just being able to create and release games on Nintendo is a cool feeling. I hope that in the future this grows and grows for Nintendo, as people have this special attachment to it as gamers.
