In this MCV article, Suda 51 says that Wii wasn’t the intentional port of call for the excellent No More Heroes. Xbox 360 was where he was at, apparently.
“Originally, I’d wanted to make this game for Xbox 360, actually,” he said. “[Marvelous Interactive boss] Wada-san had information about the new Wii and how the new controller would work before it came out, so that’s why he thought I should produce the game on that format. At the time, I didn’t really understand why, but after seeing and understanding how it works, I think it was a good choice and the controller works really well with the game.”
