No More Heroes hinted for handhelds

Grasshopper boss Goichi Suda teases with a smile.

No More Heroes has made an appearance on two platforms so far–three, if you count its Japanese Xbox 360 release. If hints from Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi Suda are anything to go by, it’ll soon make an appearance on handheld platforms, as well.

“As far as No More Heroes is concerned I consider it one of of the most important IPs we have at Grasshopper and hopefully we can announce something for this series next year,” Suda told Eurogamer during a recent Grasshopper game showing in Tokyo.

Asked if we might see the franchise on PlayStation Vita or 3DS, Suda replied with a smile: “Hmm. Hmmm. That *would* be interesting…”

A couple of Suda’s most recent works are high-profile collaborations: Shadows of the Damned with Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, and radio drama Sdatcher with Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima.

Asked if other big collaborations where in the works, Suda said: “Yeah. We would definitely like to be able to announce something that would make everyone be, like, ‘what?!’. We’re definitely talking with publishers in Japan and even with publishers overseas, so hopefully we can announce something really good soon.”
