In Edge Magazine’s cover story on “No More Heroes 2,” the game’s lead designer, Goichi Suda, is pretty straight-forward about where he thinks the future of the franchise resides.
“I think [’No More Heroes 2’] is the last ’NMH’ that is going to be developed on the Wii. To expand ’NMH’ to new possibilities, we need a new platform. Wii is a great platform, but we’ve done everything we can with it now.”
While this is certainly a bummer for Nintendo fans, consider what he’s saying. Planned for release in 2010, “No More Heroes 2” will release on the Wii. So by the time another “NMH” installment rolls around we may very well see another Nintendo platform in the works. WiiHD, perhaps? Seems that Suda isn’t ruling out the potential for “NMH” to be on a Nintendo platform, just this Nintendo platform.
