No More Heroes creator Suda51 has commented on Switch 2, and indicated that Grasshopper Manufacture will be supporting the system.

The studio was on board with the current Switch from its earliest days. You may remember that Suda51 appeared on stage during the reveal of the system way back at the start of 2017, and pledged that Travis Touchdown would be making an appearance. That led to Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, and eventually, No More Heroes 3.

Regarding Switch 2, Suda51 apparently doesn’t know much about it. However, he said in a recent interview that Grasshopper Manufacture is “definitely gonna cook for it.”

Suda51 told VGC in an interview:

“Just like everyone else, I have no idea what’s coming up. But I’m really looking forward to seeing what they come up with as both a gamer and as a developer.

The Switch is a really successful and all-around great platform so I’d be hard pressed to try to find parts of it that aren’t “good enough”, and it’s done did great things for indie games in particular. I think the Switch is awesome not only for players of all types but for developers of all types as well, especially indie developers.

Even now, I still think it’s an amazing platform. I don’t have anything in particular that I can think of as far as new features I want to see in the next-gen iteration of it are concerned, but I’m really looking forward to seeing what Nintendo does with it. They’ve always done revolutionary stuff for software and the video game industry in general.

I’m super excited for the next console, especially since we’re definitely gonna cook for it.”

One other notable tidbit from the interview is that Suda51 hopes to see Killer7 on more current consoles. Capcom previously gave permission for the GameCube title to appear on PC.
