SUDA51 is the director of No More Heroes 3 and he has arguably has the most creative influence on the franchise. He was the director, writer, and designer for Travis Touchdown’s debut game, No More Heroes, in 2007. SUDA51’s career in gaming started in 1993, and he has a collection of wild and inspiring games under his belt. In addition to the No More Heroes series, he has helmed fan-favorite projects such as Killer7, Lollipop Chainsaw, and Let it Die.

In the Twitter, post SUDA51 talks about how they originally wanted a longer name for No More Heroes 3. The name SUDA51 wanted for the game was No More Heroes 3 FINAL BOUT – All-Out Galactic War! However, the team decided to “take a hint from the Rocky series” and significantly shorten the title. The original title was supposed to hint at the fate of Travis Touchdown and the No More Heroes series.

The “Final” part was most important. as SUDA51 has stated that No More Heroes 3 is the final chapter in the Travis Touchdown story. He ends the post by saying goodbye to Travis, to the No More Heroes series, to the days and time passed during the creation of the series, and to all the Travis Touchdowns everywhere.

In an interview with IGN, Game Freak director Shigeru Ohmori revealed that his team had pushed the 3DS "to its absolute limits" with the upcoming games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and that they were treating the games as "the culmination of our work with the 3DS system."

No More Heroes games are defined by bizarre, over-the-top action, focused on flamboyant, audacious protagonist Travis Touchdown.

The first of these was revealed in the launch trailer for Travis Strikes Again. Travis and his rival, Badman, get sucked into the Death Drive Mk-II, a futuristic game console made of bones. Like we said -- No More Heroes is bizarre.
