No More Heroes began life on 360, says developer

Grasshopper founder Suda51 has told MCV that he first planned for Rising Star's No More Heroes to be an Xbox 360 title.

"Originally, I'd wanted to make this game for Xbox 360, actually. [Marvelous Interactive boss] Wada-san had information about the new Wii and how the new controller would work before it came out, so that's why he thought I should produce the game on that format."

"At the time, I didn't really understand why, but after seeing and understanding how it works, I think it was a good choice and the controller works really well with the game."

That's pretty crazy if true. Glad he got word on the controller for it's the best use of the Wii Remote and Nunchuck. I'd like to see more Wii games by him for sure ^^

yeah...hope no more heroes continue to sell before smash bros comes out over here.

I wonder how this would have on the 360.

mintaro3700d ago (Edited 3700d ago )

it probably still would've been good, but i think the wii controls are what made this game so special

charging the light sword is just plain aweosme =)

ParaDise_LosT3700d ago

the fact that it was Made by Suda (maker of Killer 7)
and Its unique art style, to say this game is special because of the wii controls is no less then a joke. :)

The graphics would have been alot better. I like the wii control scheme with this game though.

It would of been like how Rayman Raving Rabbits was good on the Wii but poor on the 360.

I wish he had stayed on 360. Can anyone imagine how sick and gruesome graphics could have looked?

ParaDise_LosT3700d ago

Yeah if this stayed on the 360 it could have been bloodier :P

lonestarmt3700d ago

No offense to wii owners, but if it was on the 360 it would have sold four times as much.

MK_Red3700d ago

Agreed with both of you. It's a shame how the game didn't sell much in US and did even worse in Japan. Hopefully the rest of the world will buy more but I'm not optimistic considering that the only 3rd party games that sell on Wii are crappy ones like Carnival Games while gems like NMH and Zack & Wiki end up with bad to mediocre sales.

LanRanger3700d ago (Edited 3700d ago )

How are you already drawing the conclusion that No More Heroes won't sell? It sold about 10% more copies in its first week of American release than Carnival Games did, and it hasn't even been released worldwide yet. Also a dozen third party games have sold more than Carnival Games on the Wii, so it's not exactly the poster child of Wii success.

Thats great and I really hope if they make No More Heros 2 they make it on 360 its much better suited for a game of its type it would probably sell far better. Although the Wii control was some of what made the game so fun to begin with.
