Gamasutra Q&A: Suda & Mikami On Partnering With EA

Killer 7 was a good game but near the end the story just got way out of hand , too confusing.The game was far too repetitive too.

I heard No More Heroes was first planned for the 360 then they changed platforms because they were interested in the whole Wii motion thing.I hope with this new deal they'll bring it back to the 360.

cause it wont be. BTW good job ignoring the other half of the partnership. Mikami is the man responsible for the Resident Evil series. No More Heroes was awesome, Resident evil was awesome, this game will be awesome regardless of what system its on (since its EA, all of them).
