Marvelous considers going hardcore

No More Heroes pub looks to 360/PS3.

Marvelous, the Japanese publisher of No More Heroes, might be eyeing a move onto what it refers to as the 'hardcore platforms'.

Speaking to Gamasutra in a recent interview, president and CEO Yasuhiro Wada (him again!) made it clear that although the firm's relationship with Nintendo has been profitable and will continue, producing games for 360 and PS3 is very much on the company wishlist.

Apparently it's been a lack of capital and professional skills which have prevented Marvelous form branching out, but Wada is convinced that "we're at the point where we can actually go into it and start thinking that we can actually do it".

Don't go holding your breath for a 360 or PS3 release of No More Heroes, however. Wada specifically states that "we don't want to license out our games, especially No More Heroes, because both Suda-san and I are in love with it, and it's like our baby, so we don't want to give it up to other people."

Whilst it's nice to see companies taking such paternal pride in their creations, we'd be very interested in seeing Travis Touchdown's adventures in HD, thank you very much.

No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle and Muramasa: The Demon Blade are both due from Marvelous on Wii later this year.
