In a recent livestream with IGN Japan, No More Heroes creator Goichi Suda revealed what he wishes to do after the recent release of No More Heroes 3. In the interview, which you can check out below, he expressed his desire to work on a Deadpool game with Marvel.
Of course, this is just wishful thinking on Suda’s part, since he also mentions that there are a number of IPs already in development that are currently in the works. That being said, it’d be certainly be great to see Grasshopper use its learnings from the No More Heroes IP with a Deadpool game.
“So you can definitely look forward to a lot of new, interesting original IPs from Grasshopper. We also of course have other plans and are working hard on them to bring them to fruition,” Suda said (as transcribed by VGC). “But [in terms of] the kind of things I’d love to do, I’d also love to work with Marvel on a Shatterstar or Deadpool game, something sort of Grasshopper-y like that. Maybe a Quicksilver title of some sorts. So, Marvel, you know.”
The No More Heroes series is now over, which was confirmed recently by the series’ official Twitter account. With 2K games licensing out Marvel properties for its upcoming Midnight Suns, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to imagine a full-fledged 3D action game from Grasshopper Manufacture using Marvel’s Deadpool.
