No More Heroes 3 by 2030 at the Earliest, says Suda 51

no-more-heroes

I always knew Suda 51 was a visionary, but this is taking it a bit far! In a new interview with GameReactor, Suda 51 says joked that No More Heroes probably won’t happen within the next “15 to 25 years”.

“Yeah, No More Heroes 3, I get a lot of requests from fans and I’m very grateful for that, but I’m thinking it may happen within 15 years or so? (laughs). Maybe not through Kickstarter, but GungHo would of course be supportive if that were to happen.

I think I have the vision that Travis forgot something, so I really have to have him to go back and get back what he has forgotten. But yeah, I definitely want to make it possible, but I also want to create something new, so maybe within 15 to 25 years (laughs)!”

“Red Ash” Teased by Comcept, Mega Man Legends Spiritual Successor?

red-ash-656x369

Comcept has just released a teaser trailer for a game titled “Red Ash”. Many are speculating that this is a spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends.

A post in the Mighty No. 9 KickStarter page says:

Now what in the world could this be…?

Well…whatever it is, we decided to give our backers a special first look at it!

If you want to know more, you are all just going to have to wait until Independence Day to find out!

We can’t say anything more until then, but we think you get the idea. Please share this video with all your friends, and help spread the word!

We should here more about Red Ash at the anime Expo this weekend. Inafune-san will be holding a panel saying that he has a special announcement that “may interest Mega Man fans.”

EVO 2015 – Smash Bros. 4 & Ultra Street Fighter 4 have the most Entrants so far

Mango-Evo-Smash-Bros-Champion

The biggest “FIGHTING GAME” tournament in the world, EVO, has put together the early numbers for contestants per game. Ultra Street Fighter 4 leads with 2,227 entries. However, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Melee are hot on Street Fighter’s tail with 1,926 and 1,869 contestants respectively.

As a side note, I’ll probably be competing at EVO 2016, as I’ve started to win most of my local tournaments in Smash Wii U. I’m going to take on the Los Angeles area this summer, so hopefully I can continue to get better. Full numbers below.

The Last Guardian Would have been Cancelled if it Weren’t for fan Support, says Yoshida

SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida, has stated that fans helped keep The Last Guardian alive.

“If everyone stopped asking about it, probably we would have [cancelled it],” Yoshida told Edge magazine.

“Tech issues aside, the game was still early in development, so we had to have a really strong desire to continue the project and rebuild on PS4. And of course we believed in the vision of Ueda-san, and Ueda-san and the core teams really wanted to see this realised, and so did I. Having so many people asking us about the game was great encouragement for us to continue the development,” he added.

The Last Guardian is set for a 2016 release on PS4.

Sony Secured Call of Duty DLC Exclusivity due to Destiny Partnership

black-ops-3-first-screen-2

Sony will have exclusive DLC for Call of Duty Black Ops 3 this fall on PS3 and PS4. This deal actually went through due to the partnership Sony had with Activision with Destiny.

“Well, I think the first thing was we’ve had a great relationship with Activision around Destiny and I’m a huge fan of that,” said PlayStation VP of Publisher & Developer Relations, Adam Boyes.

Boyes had the opportunity to play Call of Duty: Black Ops III in person and he “fell in love” with the game instantly, and things went from there.

“As soon as I started playing it, I said, ‘This feels incredible! You can wallride!’ It’s just so smooth; it’s almost like poetic. And so obviously, we just continued talking with our partners at Activision and worked something out. And now we’ve got I think a great benefit to all the gamers,” he added.

Star Ocean 5 isn’t Coming to the West on PS3, Last-gen Market has “Diminished to Nothing”, says Square Enix

StarOcean5-29

Star Ocean 5 will be hitting the PS3 and PS4 in Japan this fall. However, the west will only get the PS4 version due to the diminishing business of last-gen consoles outside of Japan. Star Ocean 5 producer Shuichi Kobayashi explained this decision in a new interview with Destructoid.

“It’s simple. The PS3 still has a fairly large market in Japan, but in the West, particularly the United States, people have just moved on to PS4. The PS3 market has almost diminished to nothing.”

I have to agree with Kobayashi-san. PS3 console and game sales are almost non-existent in the US. The PS4 is still selling like crazy here. While in Japan, the PS3 still has new games and a dedicated base of users who primarily game on PS3. The PS4 has yet to take off in Japan. So this makes complete sense. What do you guys think?
