No Suda 51 Games Coming To Nintendo Systems Anytime Soon

suda 51 No Suda 51 Games Coming To Nintendo Systems Anytime Soon

GameRevolution recently spoke with Suda 51, CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture and during this interview it was revealed that despite the fact that he himself plays a “a lot of 3DS titles,” he has no plans to bring anything new to Nintendo platforms. He didn’t provide any reasoning for this choice, but one would assume it might have something to do with the Wii U install base possibly or perhaps the perception that “mature” games don’t do well on Nintendo systems.

GameXplain recently mentioned on their Twitter account that they discovered something new about Super Smash Bros. For Wii U during their E3 play through of the game. Unlike in previous Smash games, players will now be able to charge smash attacks using the C-stick by itself and will no longer have to hold the Z button at the same time to charge them. This should make performing smash attacks somewhat easier, especially for newcomers to the series.

Nintendo Originally Considered Creating Splatoon With Established Characters

Game Informer recently interviewed Splatoon Producer Hisashi Nogami & Co-Director Tsubasa Sakaguchi about Splatoon. They discussed developing the game as well as creating a new IP for Nintendo. GI asked if Splatoon had ever been considered to be created with established characters and the response was:

“With us, first we’re making the game, and then we think what kind of characters we would use with it, and obviously, one of those choices is established IP.

Of course, the most important thing is what matches. What matches with the gameplay and the abilities you are giving to the player, the play style, and ultimately what graphically will match the game you want to make. In the case of this game, we found that it really had to be new characters to would fit this game we were making. It would be kind of weird if Mario got splattered with ink and then exploded.”

So in the planning stages, Nintendo had thought about using characters they had already created, but decided none of them would work well with Splatoon and thus decided to go in a new direction with the squid/human idea.
