Suda51 Wants a Killer7 Remaster

killer7 06-03-15-1

During a panel at this year’s PAX West, Grasshopper Manufacture boss and creative mastermind Goichi ‘Suda51’ Suda expressed his interest in remastering yet another game.

While the panel (via Hardcore Gamer) was focused on the remaster of The Silver Case (which is being co-developed by Playism and Grasshopper Manufacture), Suda brought up his want to remaster Killer7, which some consider to be his most iconic game to date.

Suda expressed his want to remaster the game by saying he’s going to begin talks with Capcom (the game’s original publisher). However, a quick note was made in that no concrete plans to make the remaster happen are currently made.

Killer7 was originally released back in 2005 for both the PlayStation 2 and the Nintendo Gamecube.

    I want a Suda51 remaster collection. Killer7, Lollipop Chainsaw, Killer is Dead, Shadows of the Damned.

    I want NMH 1&2 too but those just play better with motion controls.

    I’m not a fan of Suda’s work, but I’ve been hearing this is his best game. I doubt Capcom would bother remastering this – they’d rather release it as a PS2 game on PS4.

    Yes, Suda 51. I want- no, I NEED to experience what it’s like to be a luchador wrestler who headbutts bullets and dual wields grenade launchers again (and that’s just scratching the surface of the bizarreness)!

    Now this is a remaster I can get behind. Remasters should happen to games that are older and can benefit from getting their rougher edges smoothed out or games that didn’t get the attention they deserve.

    NMH 1 and 2 needs to be remastered with normal controls. NMH 1 was already released on the Xbox 360 and Ps3 so it can be played with normal controllers.

    It’s probably what brought him attention moreso than the Silver Case or Flower, Sun, and Rain, but arguably No More Heroes was his “best game” critically and commercially, enough to be the only game he made a sequel to– so far.

    I really enjoyed this game back in the day. If they do a remaster I really hope it comes to steam. I abandoned the consoles and PC is the only system I play now.

    I have no problem with remaking or remastering older games (unlike movies). Just bring it to Steam for us PC gamers.

    That would be ideal. As a bonus, it would be nice to see other Suda51 games join Killer is Dead on PC.

    NMH controls on PS3 needed a bit more work but they were functional enough.

    Normal controls? Blech, no no no. You should probably play the wii versions (or PS3 with move) – they’re very fun and proof that waggle can be great when done well.

    For “normal” controls to work, they would really have to re-design combat, enemies, the game, etc.

    The Wii controls, while functional, were still annoying as fuck to use.

    Remaster it for a controller, get Platinum to handle the combat, and they’re onto a winner.

    I have a PS4 for stuff like Gravity Rush 2, …and this, which is freaking amazing:

    If by “better” you mean “more generic”. The original game’s graphics and controls are actually unique, and the port adds unnecessary fanservice that doesn’t fit in with the game’s satire.

    That’s completely untrue if by “suda games” you mean games he actually created instead of games he merely contributed to. If you look at the games he actually wrote and directed, No More Heroes is the only one with fanservice. killer7 had sexual content but it was mostly played to make you uncomfortable, The Silver Case seems to be similar, and Flower Sun and Rain had none – pretty sure Twilight Syndrome had none too. even then, No More Heroes’ fanservice is a carefully constructed part of the game’s examination of power fantasies and objectification. (Notice that there’s much more fanservice in NMH2, which Suda didn’t direct – NMH2 is in general lacking in many of the thematic elements of the first game that make it more than just a fun beatemup.)

    The phenomenon of “suda makes sexy games” or “suda makes obscene games” is completely part of the western media’s reframing him by things he didn’t even make. Suda has gone on record saying both that sexuality didn’t interest him as a theme and that he doesn’t want an image of Grasshopper as erotic. Plus, even with the games that are falsely attributed to him, publishers have been known to fuck with the final product – Shadows of the Damned was originally going to be a Kafka-inspired action-adventure, but EA wanted something edgy so we got dick jokes. Killer is Dead was supposed to have side missions involving forging metals into a new blade, but Kadokawa wanted something sexy so we got Gigolo Mode.

    Fanservice is not and has never been a component of Suda’s craft.
