We’ve been hearing a lot about Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes lately and now we’re hearing more from Suda51 himself.
In an interview with Nintendo Life, Suda51 said that the team is still looking into ways to better utilise the Switch’s hardware as much as possible. This even goes as far as building in motion controls that can’t be turned off.
Nintendo Life: We’ve noticed you’ve done everything to take advantage of the Nintendo Switch’s hardware, is there anything else that we haven’t yet seen that uses the Switch’s unique capabilities?
Suda51: We’re actually still thinking about what else we could put in the game, and we’re hoping to base it off a lot of user feedback from these events, so we’re listening to what people want, what they don’t want, and we’re hoping to use that to make the game even better.
Nintendo Life: We noticed when playing that motion controls are required to recharge the players’ weapons. Is there an alternative or is it too important a part of the overall game experience?
Suda51: We’re still working on various elements of the game, but I’m pretty confident that we’re not going to have an option to switch the motion controls off. We really want to utilise the Switch hardware as much as possible in any way we can. I’m confident we can make the motion controls smooth enough so that even those that aren’t fans of it will be able to at least accept it.
While I’m not sure how many of you are going to react to the fact that the motion controls can’t be switched off, but we’re definitely excited to see how the developers can better utilise the Switch’s amazing hardware.
