No More Heroes publisher eyeing more 'hardcore' platforms

Marvelous, publisher of Wii's wunderbar No More Heroes (and its upcoming sequel) in Japan, is hoping to make a move onto Xbox 360 and PS3. In an interview with Gamasutra, company president Yasuhiro Wada said its finances and the skill level of its employees are nearly to the point where it can produce games for the systems.

"To be honest, we always wanted to make a game on the hardcore platforms, but at that time, there wasn't enough money or skill. But now, I think we're at the point where we can actually go into it and start thinking that we can actually do it," Wada said. Marvelous' titles to date have been on Wii, DS and PSP.

According to Wada, once the company goes "hardcore," Marvelous wants to develop the titles itself. "We're always thinking about going multiplatform. But at the same time, we don't just want to give it to different people to make it. We want to make it ourselves. So, it may take a little longer than we want to, but we'll do it little by little, and then go multiplatform."

The story is too old to be commented.

Awh, that makes me sad. I thought Marvelous had a soft spot for Nintendo.

I love Marvelous.

I can see this story being blown way out of proportion.This is a good thing for the industry as a whole but having their games go multi-plat will lose their unique quality.T_T

Use the wii to make a game with a low budget then make the money and now we can financially make games on the HD consoles "thanks to the lower end systems"

That's pretty much what they did, I like them but why didn't they just do like HVS... I just don't know, something isn't right with this tactic.

I would like to see their work on the other systems, but just the comment on how they can now do it...meh

Anyhow, let's see what else they can do.

Marvelous Entertainment is a rocking group and the games they have made are sweet. So if they want to expand let them it's great for everyone. Doesn't mean they'll stop making games for Wii and DS just means they'll be making games for PS3 and 360 as well :)
