Respected developer SUDA51 has recently participated in an interview with Siliconera and discussed the recently launched No More Heroes 3, which is exclusive to Nintendo Switch. Siliconera pushed SUDA51 to explain what he would like to add as downloadable content if they were planning it. SUDA51 replied that the likelihood for DLC to come to No More Heroes 3 is pretty much zero . However , he did say what they would like to achieve if they did manage to create DlC for the zany action-packed title. He and the rest of the team would work on the map’s red zone which SUDA51 said that they had actually created an area for. The original issue was their idea wasn’t feasible on the Nintendo Switch so it was scrapped, simply because the processing load was too heavy to the Switch to handle. He also mentioned that he would also liked to add alternative routes for the story mode and add a couple of additional playable characters such as Shinobu. Here’s what SUDA51 told Siliconera.
Question: If you did decide to do No More Heroes 3 DLC, what would you have liked to add?
The answer is probably going to be what most people reading this will assume. But there are a couple of things that I’d like to add. First, I just wanna say unfortunately at this point there isn’t any DLC, and there probably won’t be. If there is some sort of miracle and we’d be able to add some DLC into the game, this is also something a lot of people brought up.. But when you open up the full map there is that sort of red zone. I think a lot of people just assumed that this would be added later on in DLC.
Honestly, we had created that entire area. It was basically finished. Unfortunately due to tech reasons, we weren’t able to keep it into the game. The processing load was just a bit too hardcore. So we unfortunately had to scrap it. I think there would have been some really cool stuff in there that people would have liked to play, and that I would have liked people to play.
Another thing, and I’m sure this is something people would expect, if we were allowed to do DLC, what I would like to do is add some kind of switch. Instead of going through the root of the game, you could take a different route and be able to fight those Galactic Superhero Rankers previously mentioned and have boss specific battles with each of them.
The third thing that I would like to add is a couple playable characters. Possibly Shinobu, that might be my first choice. But if we were allowed to do some DLC and OK to do whatever I wanted, these would be the three things I would be most interested in adding to the game.
