No Killer Is Dead For Wii U. How About No More Heroes 3?

rustyshell.com: With the announcement of Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture’s new title Killer Is Dead last week, it seems at this stage the game will skip Wii U. So how about giving Wii U No More Heroes 3 instead? (Wii U)

I'd love to get NMH 3 very soon. The first two were some of the most fun i had in recent years.

Suda 51 used nintendo as a stepping stone to prove their worth.. Now theyre building a masterpiece for the real core consoles.. Tho the NMH series was great, it just doesnt sell well on nintendo cuz its for mature audiences.. They will get much more sales going with MS/Sony machines..
ZeekQuattro  +   986d ago
Yeah because the NMH remake sold so well as did Lollipop Chainsaw.

lollipon chainsaw sold not too bad, but NMH remake sold veeeeeeeery poorly.. I'm all for Wii U & 3DS games from Suda

No more heroes on the Nintendo Wii was Suda51's best selling single game "ever" out of every game he has ever been involved with. His second best selling single game was No More Heroes 2 on the Wii.

The games he made on the PS3 and 360 sold horribly without even taking into account the increased dev cost he had for those consoles.

The game he just released on the 3DS eshop was like the no.1 selling game for almost a month.

Fanboy vision is ridiculous sometimes.

The combined sells of Shadows of the Damned for the PS3 and 360 are lower than No More Heroes 2 on the Wii alone.

Random I know but what 3DS eshop game did Suda make?
Theyellowflash30  +   986d ago
This game might not even make it to the West because of how poorly Suda's PS3 and Xbox 360 games have sold. Suda has an audience with Nintendo gamers. No More Heroes 3 on the Wii U would be a big seller.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   986d ago
though i totally agree with what youre saying, i just cant help but wonder how different sales figures would be for the "hd nmh" games, had they not been so late on the ps360.
shadowraiden  +   986d ago
@XXdubstepXX even if the release dates were the same the Wii would have still outsold the other 2 combined due to these types of games not being bothered with by the PS3/360 owners since 99% of them are just in it for the big name games.

Lollipop Chainsaw has already outsold No More Heroes (Wii) and still has time to sell more. Budget release is due out soon.



By your logic, making it his best selling single game ever.

Suda keeps this up,what will happen is when he decides to put NMH3 on wiiu gamers will just say too little too late sorry mate.

It's true if your selling best on Nintendo platforms you stay developing on Nintendo platforms ?
BlackWolf  +   986d ago
Your talking about Liberation Maiden, wich was part of the compilation game Guild01.

@Knushwood Butt
Well, considering LC sales are combined totals on two consoles, yes, it has surpassed the NMH sales, on a single console.

But NMH for the Wii sold more than the remake for the PS3. That doesn't make any sense because you said it's for mature audiences. You said that core series sell more on ms/sony machines, but they didn't.

You were lying!?

Please respond.

He, uh, can't. Bubbles and all that. (It's best not to talk about it. Just don't make eye contact and keep walking.)
YoungPlex  +   986d ago
Your ridiculous! No More Heroes is Suda51's BEST selling title to date on the Wii, not PS3! Take your goggles off and stop trolling!
fatstarr  +   986d ago
just a capcom re4 thing all over
or a namco bandai tales of symphonia....

shit crashes and burns when you dont stay true to what brought you to your success in the first place.

see my first comment for how I feel.

You make it sound as if using a console to prove your worth as a developer is a bad thing. Every company/developer/publisher does the same thing all the time. If they don't make games, how can they be recognized?

If you think it NMH would have sold better on PS3/360, why did the HD version of the game sell that bad compared to the original version on Wii? Both PS3 versions nor the 360 version cannot get even close to the sales level of NMH 2, which sold worse than the original game.


Your logic is flawed. Period.

Suda said multiple times that he will make NMH3 for the Wii U. The last comment he made about it was that he hadn't yet received a Wii U dev kit. That, more than anything else, is the likely reason why the games haven't been announced for the console yet.

suda better not forget how much the wii users supported him

like come on a no name M rated game on a childs console and it still sold.

he better not forget!

I hate when devs do this... -_- theres no money on the ps3/360/sony/microsoft camp unless you are a sports game, movie game, 1st party game or a fps.

Excuse me , but why is the wii a ''childs'' console ?

Correct me if I'm wrong but the wii has probably a 100 M rated/18 Games. And the PS3 and 360 have a lot of E/3-12 Rated games.

The xbox , ps3 and wii are all games consoles . Anyone who thinks they are ''Manly or mature'' for playing one over the other is less mature than someone who just thinks they're playing a games console for the games.

Wii has many violent , Complex games. So whilst a lot of its games are marketed for children you can't just label it a kids console.

If Miyamoto asked- Nintendo would get it.

They may have to set-up/ employ a 3rd Party to Port it to WiiU but he could get it on WiiU.
Thepcz  +   986d ago
personally, i find sudas games over-rated. i have both nmh 1 and 2 for wii.

i think i'd skip nmh 3 if it came to wiiu, its a shallow series
mamotte  +   986d ago
You haven't played enough Suda51 games.
Thepcz  +   985d ago
i played 1 and 2 all the way to completion, i have also played killer 7.

those are his best games, so dont act like i dont know what im talking about- i do, its just the games are weak
vakarian75  +   986d ago
@zeon0079 he made liberation maiden for the eshop.
TheBardsSong  +   986d ago
That's a shame, but I also own a 360 and PS3. This really does look like a spiritual sequel to No More Heroes, so I feel like it would be at home on Wii U.
wiiulee  +   986d ago
yeah whatever happen to no more heroes....that series need to make it to the wiiu as an exclusive
Nevers0ft  +   985d ago
I realise this is going to get me a lot of disagrees but I have to ask... Am I the only one not overly impressed by Suda51's games? I've played Killer7 and No More Heroes 1 & 2 and all of them left me feeling a little underwhelmed - they look great and have an interesting plot, but are little more than mindless hack-em-ups.
