The No More Heroes franchise was dormant for about a decade following the release of the second entry on Wii. But we then saw Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes in 2019, Switch ports of the previous titles last year, and we’re about to get No More Heroes 3. You can definitely say that the series’ future is looking bright.

No More Heroes has stayed within the gaming space, but creator Suda51 is interested in expanding the IP into areas. Speaking with IGN, he talked about how he hopes there’ll be a movie or TV show based on the series someday. Also revealed is that one past proposal “came really close” to happening, with a decision even having been made egarding “the actor to play the main character, but it never made it into production.”

Suda51’s full words:

First spotted by Gematsu, No More Heroes has received a rating by the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee. The rating is for the original No More Heroes that first released on the Wii in 2007, but the platform is listed as the Nintendo Switch. 

There is no release date listed at this time but this could hint at a possible No More Heroes Port in the future. A screenshot taken by Gematsu is included below as well as a link to the rating on the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee.

During an online version of MomoCon today, Suda51 appeared during a live stream. The No More Heroes director ended up answering a number of questions regarding his career both past and present.

At one point, Suda51 was asked about the possibility of some of his previous games landing on Switch. It sounds like there’s a decent chance of The Silver Case finding its way to the system since discussions have been held. As for Killer7 and Killer is Dead, that’d be up to Capcom and Kadokawa Games respectively.

Suda51’s translator relayed the following:

Hello, my phantom thieves! This week on NEP, we’re introducing our Fallout 76 inspired subscription membership service: Nintendo Everything Podcast 1st. It just works! Then we comb over all the details of Persona 5 Scramble, which Galen has a “Revelation” about… Oni isn’t pleased, but quickly regains happiness as the gang discuss Swery and Suda51’s new collab project. And, of course, the weekly dose of Pokemon gets added to the mix, as well.

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

This week, the podcast is sponsored by Koei Tecmo. Check out Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, releasing on Nintendo Switch October 29th in North America, November 1st in Europe.

During a live stream hosted by IGN Japan today, No More Heroes creator Suda51 and Deadly Premonition director Swery stopped by to announce a joint horror project. Though much of the finer points have yet to be settled, it sounds like Switch is a realistic possibility for what the game ends up being.

Here’s a summary of information shared during the stream:

No More Heroes had a pair of games on Wii before the series went on hiatus for many years. The franchise finally returned with Travis Strikes Again, but we’re now getting a true third entry with No More Heroes 3 in 2020.
