Suda51 has said that he’s thinking about bringing back classic characters for Travis Strikes Again, including dead ones. Speaking in an interview with Nintendo UK, he explained that in order to bring back the people Travis has killed, he would have to iron out “several things”.

Suda51 stated:

Travis Strikes Again is quite a bit different from the original No More Heroes games. You’ll be entering the worlds / genres of a few different titles, including action, racing, and puzzle.

The origins of these different games are rather interesting. In an interview with SideQuesting, director Suda51 revealed that the team took inspiration from “several old projects that I had in mind that I made project documents about, but they never went anywhere.”

One of the major elements of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is the different game worlds you’ll travel to. Lately we’ve seen Electronic Thunder Tiger II from the recent playable demos. In an interview with Gematsu, director Suda51 outlined the other worlds that will be included.

Suda51 shared the following:

At PAX, GameXplain was able to chat with Suda51 about all things Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. Suda51 weighed in on working with Switch, the game’s story and worlds, and more. You can watch the full interview below.

At GDC this week, GamesRadar caught up with Suda51 for an interview. Suda51 spoke about Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, including DLC as well as the game’s top-down perspective and how that affects the feel of violence. He also weighed in on Switch being a home for indie titles.

We’ve posted some excerpts from the interview below. For the full discussion, head on over to GamesRadar.

Suda51 is finally back on Nintendo consoles. Next year, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes will launch on Switch.

Travis Strikes Again was originally announced during the latest Nindies Showcase, and for good reason. The game will have partnerships with a ton of different indie titles. Hotline Miami, Shovel Knight, and others will be featured as t-shirts in the game. The collaborations could extend further beyond that as well.

Many outlets have had a chance to speak with Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes director Suda51. Famitsu was included, and was given an opportunity to learn more about the Switch game. In one of its issues, the Japanese magazine published a two-page interview with Suda51.

During the interview, Suda51 provided a status update on development progress, some of the staffers working on the team, and background information for things like the Death Drive Mk-II. We have a full translation below.

In a recent interview with GameInformer, Goichi “Suda51” Suda discusses the game designer’s “strange approach” to development. While talking about developer Grasshopper Manufacture’s other remakes, Suda51 also considers the possibility of revisiting Killer7:

The thing about Killer7 is that, right now, it’s not easy to play that game anymore right now. That’s definitely something I’d like to maybe revisit and update.

This is not the first time Suda51 has explored the idea of remaking or remastering the game. Released in 2005, Killer7 was originally planned to be a GameCube exclusive. With the upcoming Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes scheduled to be released on the Switch in 2018, might we see older Grasshopper Manufacture games see remakes on the Nintendo console in the future?

GamesRadar recently caught up for an interview with Suda51 for all things Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. Although there was talk about the upcoming Switch game, Suda51 took some time to reflect on the series as a whole.

One noteworthy part of the discussion came about while Suda51 commented on No More Heroes being accepted in the west compared to Japan. He said that there has “definitely” been a “much more positive reaction” in North America and Europe. Although the reaction in Japan hasn’t been particularly bad, it perhaps hasn’t been as warmly received due to its violent nature and blood.

Suda51 said:

The interviews with Suda51 continue to roll in. Kotaku spoke with the Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes director at PAX West.

Other than talking about the Switch game, Suda51 had some words about the hardware itself. He described it as a “punk console” and was “shocked” when he first saw it.

Here’s Suda51 talking about Switch in his usually zany way:
