No More Heroes 3 is "About 35-40 Percent Complete," Says Suda 51
No More Heroes creator Suda 51 provides updates on the latest entry in the series such as its open-world and how far along the game is in development.
In an interview with Wccftech, Suda 51 provides updates on No More Heroes 3 including how far along it is and the scale of its open world.
When asked how far along the game is, Suda 51 said the game is “about 35-40 percent complete.” Additionally, he said that while Grasshopper Manufacture has made some big games, No More Heroes 3 won’t be their biggest.
“It will definitely be a bigger open world than the original No More Heroes, but you have to remember that we’re a middle-class studio in terms of size,” says Suda 51. “It takes a lot of skills, wisdom, and resources to make an open-world game, so it won’t be as big as something you see from huge companies like Ubisoft or Rockstar.”
Suda also confirms the return of motion controls to the series. He goes onto say the challenge with adding them came from the Nintendo Switch’s hardware capabilities. Additionally, he confirms actor and composer Nobuaki Kanko will work on the game’s soundtrack.
“It will have about the amount of side-missions you’d expect from a No More Heroes game, along with some other extras as well,” continues Suda. When asked to elaborate on what the extras will be, Suda said “they’ll be something…greater. Something different than your standard minigame.”
When asked when fans can see more footage from the game, Suda said they’ll release something later this year of next year. Additionally, he described one of the game’s boss battles as a mix of Thanos, Venom, and Joker. We’ll have to wait and see what that epic boss fight will look like.
No More Heroes 3 was announced during Nintendo’s E3 Direct in June with a stylish announcement trailer. The last game in the series was Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes back in January which features several mini-games.
No More Heroes 3 launches on Nintendo Switch sometime in 2020. In the meantime, you can watch the game’s announcement trailer from E3 below.
