Suda: “Comments Regarding Wii Third Party Misinterpreted”

We previously reported that Suda had expressed displeasure with sales of third-party titles on Wii in Japan. However, the official GrassHopper website has posted an official statement from Suda stating that his previous comments were misinterpreted. In reality, Suda wanted say that No More Heroes will instead attract a different type of gamer in Japan, opposed to the typical non-gamer audience.

    This is Suda51, director of “NO MORE HEROES”. Currently on promotional tour through 5 European countries. Having visited in United Kingdom, France, and Italy, currently in Milan for the weekend.

    I am concerned to learn my comments in one interview regarding the success of Nintendo 3rd party titles have been misinterpreted.

    My point was that “NO MORE HEROES”, unlike a lot of Nintendo Wii titles currently available is the kind of product which will attract a different kind of consumer to the hardware, ie. gamers who are looking for a different genre to the products which have been successful on this platform thus far.
