Like Killer 7 and No More Heroes before it, No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle’s got “Suda51″ written all over it. Translation: It’s weird. Grown-up weird. Phallic imagery everywhere weird. And you know what that means. Yep! A very entertaining ESRB write-up. Here’s a snippet:
“Two women (clad in bikinis) get suspended in mid-air, get caught between the flashing lights, lasers, and frenetic sword swipes of an assassins’ duel—the women’s heads slide across the floor once the men stop fighting.”
The listing also reveals the return of Bizarre Jelly, a fake anime that was featured in the first game. Even the show’s opening’s quick “one-to-two seconds” of bare buttock were unable to escape the ESRB’s watchful eye.
We’ve posted the full listing after the break in order to avoid unnecessary spoilage. So have at it. Take a glimpse inside Suda51′s loony bin-ripe mind for solid proof that he’s still got “it.” By which we mean his game design chops. As for the other “it” – you know, his sanity – we’re pretty sure he lost it a long, long time ago.

Grasshopper boss Goichi Suda has a new favourite games designer. It’s Criterion games boss Alex Ward.
“I have four favorite game designers,” Suda told 1UP. “Erik [Chahi, Out of This World creator] is one of them. I’m not sure if he’s the number one, but he’s one of them.
“There used to be three, but the fourth person is [Criterion Games'] Alex Ward, who I added after I met him recently.”
Suda’s went on to say that he would most likely end up “enjoying” working with Chahi or Ward, should the opportunity arise.
TGS, TGS, TGS.

Suda51′s told Edge that No More Heroes needs to move past Wii if it’s to flourish.
“I really want to make NMH a big franchise,” he said, “and with this second episode have bigger success. I’m putting a lot of care into developing this IP, as I feel there’s a lot of potential.
“I think this is the last NMH that is going to be developed on Wii,” he added. “To expand NMH to new possibilities, we need a new platform. Wii is a great platform, but we’ve done everything we can with it now.”
Now look at this. Good news for 360 and PS3 owners, no doubt.

Criterion’s Alex Ward just tweeted that Grasshopper legend Suda51 is a Burnout Paradise mentalist.
“Suda51 came here for the day a few weeks ago,” said the dev boss.
“He’s a hardcore Burnout fan. I checked the servers – over 700hrs play.”
That’s a lot of hours. Just goes to show.

Ubisoft sat down with Goichi Suda during E3 and talked to him about Grasshopper Manufacture’s No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle.
During the chat, Suda 51 discussed Travis Touchdown’s maturity, character interaction with players, the themes of life and death in the game, and how setting limits is something he avoided when creating the sequel.
“You don’t need to put any limits when it comes to raw expression,” he said. “Limiting expression is just something set up by people to please other people.
“So we didn’t do anything like that for No More Heroes 2.”

IGN’s posted a translation of the No More Heroes 2 details from Famitsu this week, giving first notes on characters and plot.
The game’s set three years after the original, and features both Travis Touchdown and Silvia Chrystel.
According to that piece, “Due to heavy investment from large corporations, Santa Destroy has rapidly become a tourist town. One day, Sylvia suddenly appears before Travis and invites him to another assassin ranking battle.
“At that very moment, Travis’s sole friend, Bishop, is seen in somewhat of a pinch as a gang of ruffians take close aim at his head with guns.”
Full thing through there. Trailers, and all the rest of it, will be released during E3.

Don’t own a Wii? Want to play No More Heroes? Tough. Suda51′s told 1UP there are no plans to do so. “Yet”.
“Actually, a lot of the fans were dying to play the game on other consoles, so I think it’d be great if I could do it, but there’s no plan yet,” said Suda.
“[If so,] I would match the content to [fit] the other consoles. No More Heroes could be a big title, like a big IP, so it’d be good to have a chance to release the game on other consoles, and that would maybe maximize the market.”

Speaking to 1UP after last night’s announcement that Grasshopper Manufacture has signed its new horror game to EA, Killer 7 developer Suda51 said the fact EA published Rock Band was a major draw for the deal.
“Of course I had a chance to present it to different publishers, but EA was the company that understood the game and understood my approach to it,” he said.
“That’s why I took the chance to work with EA. Also, EA produced Rock Band, so they understand the ‘soul of rock.’”
