Travis Strikes Again uses ideas from abandoned projects, Suda51 wants to go beyond No More Heroes 3
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.”
“Obviously, like you hinted at, schedule and budget were factors in that. But there was also several old projects that I had in mind that I made project documents about, but they never went anywhere. And so we decided to focus on those and take their essences as a way to finally bring them to light.”
“There’s another purpose to this game as well. It’s like a combination of all of the souls of the other games that I didn’t get to make, all coming together into one game.”
Suda51 also again addressed the future of the No More Heroes series in general. Along with making No More Heroes 3, he hopes to move the series even beyond that point.
“I’m totally with you on that. If TSA is successful, my goal is to make No More Heroes 3. I hope to go even further beyond this as well. Travis is such a part of me, that I want more people to experience him. He’ll go to even more new places, new game ideas.”
