Suda51 on wanting to make Travis Strikes Again its own series, Switch ports, Killer7 sequel unlikely
Travis Strikes Again is set in the No More Heroes universe, but it’s not the typical style of gameplay that fans are accustomed to. However, we know how important it is due to director Suda51 previously mentioning that it would be connected to a possible No More Heroes 3. And if all goes well, Travis Strikes Again could create a series of its own.
Suda51 spoke about that and more in an interview with Feed4gamers. Aside from discussing the future of Travis Strikes Again, he expressed interest in putting out “as many ports as possible” for his previous games and also indicated that a Killer7 sequel is unlikely to happen since a continuation is unnecessary.
Here’s the full roundup:
On wanting to make Travis Strikes Again its own series…
I think it would be great, if TSA could turn into its own series, sort of parallel to the No More Heroes series. The great thing also is that the story within TSA has a lot of direct connections to my ideas for NMH3, so if NMH3 does get created, what happens in TSA will end up being important for that next installment. I have the outline for the story for NMH3 already mapped in my head.
On porting his past games to Switch…
Yes I want to bring out as many ports as possible, it just depends on what can happen at each specific time, but I’m gonna put all my efforts to make sure I get to as many as I can.
On the possibility of a Killer7 sequel…
I’ll just come out and clearly say that, I really don’t feel a need for there being any continuation to the Killer7 universe, as I feel that I sort of completed that world, and I sent out everything I could into it, basically. So, making another game that’s connected to this game, somehow doesn’t make sense to me. But there was a lot of script that was cut out back then, I felt too much was omitted from the game itself, so I can see maybe a possibility of putting out a more complete version someday that restores those cut-out parts.
