Goichi Suda is a Japanese video game developer very popular for creating some cult titles such as Flower, Sun, and Rain, Killer 7 and No More Heroes. In a recent conversation, the creative better known as Suda51 gave his opinion on the Nintendo Switch, its developer Grasshopper Manufacture and its plans for the future.
In an interview with Game Reactor, Suda51 mentioned that he is very happy with the Nintendo Switch and considered that it is the definitive console:
“I feel the Switch is awesome. It’s basically the game console, you know, you can load it up, you can play games right away, they’re showing a lot of support for indie games, which is really great. They just announced Cuphead, there’s a lot of cool games coming out on it and it’s really fun to play.”
The Japanese Dev also spoke about the present and future of Grasshopper Manufacture as a development studio, which he believes is better than ever:
“I really feel Grasshopper has really gotten back to its roots,” he told us via a translator. “We’ve got a core team, not so big, about 25 people or so, and it’s the first time in a long time that I’m able to really get into the finer details of game creation. I’m able to go around to the different members of the team and really talk to them while they’re working on the game, give them really specific directions, see exactly what everyone’s doing, see exactly how the game’s coming along.”
Finally, the creative hinted that it is possible that Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is not the last thing we will see on the Nintendo console: “I’m really looking forward to doing more with the Switch,” he concluded.
Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. What do you think of what Suda51 said? Tell us in the comments below.
