Suda51 created two No More Heroes games for Wii. There hasn’t been many developments in the series since No More Heroes 2 came out a few years ago, but he’s still interested in the series.
When asked about the possibility of No More Heroes 3, Suda51 said:
“Travis [Touchdown] is one of the characters I’m really fond of, that means a lot to me. So if there was the opportunity to create another sequel then yeah, I’m always up to the idea.”
Come on, Suda… you basically promised another No More Heroes for Nintendo’s new console (which we now know is the Wii U) way back in 2009. The fans demand it!
Wii U owners in Japan can soon take advantage of a new eShop promotion from Nintendo.
Add 5,000 yen to your account, and you’ll receive credit as high as 500 yen. It’s similar when you add 10,000 yen to your account – up to 1,000 yen will be given back.
This new promotion will run between June 26 and July 10.
Nintendo usually does its own thing when it comes to creating games – especially with Zelda. No one asked for a cel-shaded Zelda after Ocarina of Time, but that’s exactly what was delivered.
However, there are some instances in which Nintendo has taken fans’ opinions into consideration. For Zelda, Twilight Princess was the project most impacted and influenced by fan opinion.
Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma told Zelda Universe:
Hmm… I think the project that reflects our reaction to fan opinion is probably Twilight Princess. The incentive for us to create that different version of the Zelda universe was certainly as a result of The Wind Waker criticism that we received. Fans were saying that it wasn’t what they were looking for, it wasn’t what they were hoping for, so that’s why we went with this different graphic presentation. So I think that’s probably the one, the biggest change that we made.
I still remember eight years ago at E3 when we ran that first video of Twilight Princess. It was received very well; there was a standing ovation! So I still remember that moment very well.
SEGA launched a teaser site today for something called “Project 575″.
Currently, the page contains a video featuring two female silhouettes engaged in conversation. The two don’t appear to be revealing any significant information about what SEGA is actually teasing, so we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled for future updates.
Keep track of the site here.
Did you know that the latest Epic Mickey games still haven’t hit Japan? Well, in any case, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two for Wii U and Wii will be out on September 26. So will Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, the spinoff 3DS game.
Next week’s Japanese 3DS VC releases are highlighted by the Game Boy Color version of Mario Tennis. It’s due out on June 26 for 600 yen.
On a personal note, I can’t even begin to tell you guys how many hours I played this game. Nintendo: get on releasing this overseas, would you?!
