Few third-party contributions to Wii’s library were more memorable than No More Heroes or its sequel. The games told the violent and absurd story of Travis Touchdown, an otaku-turned-assassin who had to fight his way up the ranks of the world’s most feared, capable, and charismatic killers. While the games never set any sales records, they managed to find an audience who probably wouldn’t mind to see more of Touchdown’s adventures, something that seems all the more likely because the man who created Travis wants to see more of him too.

“Well, I definitely want to see Travis again. Not just in the sequel, either,” series creator Suda51 stated in an interview with Anime News Network. “His life is really interesting, so I want to talk about his story again. I want him to grow up as I grow older. I’m not sure when it will be, but I want to talk about his life. So Travis is very important to me. I think he’s the most loved of my characters.”

Okay, this might not be anything close to some sort of announcement, but hopefully it will at least let fans know that Suda51 and the folks at Grasshopper Manufacture haven’t forgot about the unabashedly crazy world they created in No More Heroes. And as Suda51 stated, it is entirely possible that Travis might show up in something other than an official sequel to the series that made him famous.

    I would love a third entry, maybe a return to the open world aspects of the first. Imagine if Travis had a mission to get a pastrami sandwich.

    Travis needs to be in a fighting game and a Wii U game published by Nintendo. His fighting swordplay style was unmatched on the original Wii.

    I have these two games, but have yet to try them out. I do a lot of research on games so I pick up whatever gets good reviews, word of mouth, or is a gem in the wild. There are plenty of gems on the Wii for sure. I still have a few games on my list I want to get, but am concentrating on Wii U titles at the moment. I’m convinced a lot of games on Wii U will be collectible down the line, much like gamecube titles were. Still have yet to pick up Captain Toad and a hard copy of Windwaker HD, even though I have the digital release it really doesn’t count. These two titles always looked great to me, so found used copies that basically looked like they were just opened and put on the sales floor at Gamestop. In between school and looking for full-time work, it’s hard to keep up with all these titles coming out.
