Grasshopper Manufacture is in talks with Marvelous to bring earlier No More Heroes titles on new platform as stated by Grasshopper‘s CEO and President Suda 51 during an interview with Dengeki Playstation on the PS4 launch of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes.
The following it’s a translated extract of the interview, provided by Gematsu:
“Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is the first No More Heroes game on a PlayStation platform since No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise. Are there any plans to make previous entries playable on PlayStation 4?
Suda: “Yes. We’re currently in talks with Marvelous to make that happen. It’s in positive consideration, so I hope we’ll be able to make a good announcement.”
Finally, is there anything you’d like to say for fans looking forward to the PlayStation 4 version of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes?
Suda: “The PlayStation 4 version is the Complete Edition with all the downloadable content included. There will also be original collaboration t-shirts exclusive to the PlayStation 4 version, so be sure to play it!”
At the past E3 2019 in June, Suda 51 said that he would be more than welcome to bring earlier games of the series on Switch. For this reason, there were plans to talk with Marvelous, the IP holder, to make it happen. However, this is the first time the possibility to port these titles to other platforms besides Switch has been mentioned.
