Suda51 explains why Switch was the right platform for Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, gives progress update

Wondering what's up with Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes? The gang at Famitsu certainly is, which is why they sat down with Suda51 to talk about the game and more. You can see some snippets from the interview below, as translated by NintendoEverything.

Famitsu: Suda-san appeared at the January Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 and declared Travis’ “revival” there. First of all, please tell us the reason why did you decided to make a new game for Nintendo Switch.

Suda51: I feel Travis Touchdown is one of the important characters that makes me want to create a sequel for, and thankfully he’s been loved by all players from both inside and outside the country. When wondering when the chance to make a further sequel would come, after the work on Let It Die calmed down, I learned about the Nintendo Switch. I instantly felt, “This console might have good compatibility with No More Heroes!” The past games also did well with the Wii Remote, and I feel the same appeal with Switch’s Joy-Con.

Famitsu: Is development proceeding well?

Suda51: Yes. Next year should be good timing since Nintendo Switch’s stock problems should be solved by then, so we’re doing our utmost on developing the game right now so that it can be released at that time. Our direct task right now is to make it playable with just one Joy-Con controller and also to make it feel as good as No More Heroes, but there are also many old games that can be played really well even with few buttons, so I think the challenge is worthwhile. Also, this is a serious love call, but in order for Travis to be able to appear in Super Smash Bros. someday, I’d like to have simple controls (laughs).
