Apparently there have been confusing announcements made.  We don't know if it's mistranslation, if Suda is just trolling us, or whatever.

NL: Will gameplay reflect the indie games that appear in Travis Strikes Again, or will gameplay be in the style of early No More Heroes titles?

 

S: One thing that a lot of people seem to misunderstand is that there are definitely games inside this game, but they’re not actually the indie games that I’m collaborating with. They’re actually completely original games that exist in the world of No More Heroes, but they’re not existing games in the real world. In Travis Strikes Again, there is a game console called the Death Drive MK-II that uses these objects that we are calling Tiger Balls as games rather than cartridges or discs. There are six of these games that exist in the world.

 

For more backstory, the Death Drive MK-II was originally created by a character named Dr. Juvenile who works for a company called Hazure. She created this console and these games, and the console was announced but never actually put on sale because it turned out to be super-dangerous. The reason is because people who played this console ended up getting sucked into the world of the game they were playing and dying. There are six of these games that exist, and there is an urban legend – that Travis is trying to find out whether or not is true – that if you collect and clear all six of the games that exist, a tiger god will come down and grant you one wish. Travis is trying to work out whether or not that’s true, so he has to collect all of the games and beat them all to see if this console and the god that is attached to it will actually come down and grant his wish.

 

As for the games that you play, the fundamental gameplay for each game is pretty much the same. The genre of each game is different, but the fundamental gameplay is the same. The games that Travis plays in the game actually have nothing to do with the indie games themselves. The indie game collaboration is basically what we’re referring to as the “t-shirt collaboration.” The indie games that I’ve been going around and collecting to collaborate with, they’re going to be featured on Travis’s t-shirts. At this point there are 15 games, and Travis will have as many t-shirts that you can switch back and forth for however many games I’m able to collect before the game goes on sale.

 

NL: In previous No More Heroes games, each boss fight felt unique based on the various assassins that you came in contact with. Can we expect something similar with the bosses in Travis Strikes Again? If so, how might those play?

 

S: There are six different games that are going to appear in this game, so at the very least there will be six very different, really unique boss fights. The art and general aesthetic of the game is going to be really awesome, so I want everyone to look forward to that.

 

All of the new characters that are appearing in this game were all made by a new collaborator of mine who is an artist from the UK named Boneface. The characters in the game are sort of a collaborative effort between Yūsuke Kozaki and Boneface.

Suda basically admits this latest No More Heroes is an attempt to see if he can get Travis to be a guest fighter in Super Smash Bros. 5.

It seems Badman is going to have a bigger presence than I thought. Considering that and Suda51 wants this game to be playable with a single Joy-Con I wonder if this game will have a cooperative play.

Here, another Suda interview:  https://gonintendo.c...s-project-scope

 

 

A portion of an NWR interview with Suda51...

 

NWR: Regarding scope, do you see this as a smaller scale project or similar in size to previous No More Heroes games?

 

Suda51: As far as development goes, this is definitely a smaller-scale project than the previous games, as I’ve scaled back the team from, for example, the 40+ people who were working on Let it Die to a team of only about 15 people, give or take a few, for TSA. As far as the game itself is concerned, while I can’t really comment right now on future plans for the title or its own series, I do have hopes that it will become something larger than it seems now, and I’d like everyone to look forward to what we have coming up.

 

NWR: How long has Travis Strikes Again been in development?

 

Suda51: The game itself has been in development for just about four months at this point.

Damn, so it's only been in development for as long as we've known about the project?? That kind of thing rarely happens in gaming.

Suda is still on the interview circuit.

 

Why Travis Strikes Again is Switch exclusive:  https://gonintendo.c...-is-switch-excl

 

Why Travis Strikes Again instead of No More Heroes 3?:  https://gonintendo.c...tead-of-no-more

>> Suda wants to attract more players and not just those that played one/both of the previous games.

 

Suda is pleased people are happy Travis is coming back and also sings praises of Nintendo and the Switch:
