Suda51 has confirmed that a Killer7 remaster is on the cards. The announcement was made during the HOPPER’S Vol. 5 event, an event celebrating the 20-year anniversary of studio behind Killer7, Grasshopper Manufacture. A twitter user attending the event initially said that Suda51 (head of the Grasshopper Manufacture) made the announcement towards the end of proceedings. This was backed up by user Phenomenal Flea over on the ResetEra forums, who also attended the event.
Now Suda51 himself has confirmed that the Killer7 remaster will be realized within the next 10 years via this tweet. He also posted a series of articles alongside this tweet, one from Famitsu, detailing what Suda51 said about the proposed remaster (which turned out not to be much). While the 10 year timeframe is both vague and lengthy, we can now say that the man himself has big plans for one of his most beloved titles.
While no more specific information was given on a date or platforms for release, this is definitely a surprise announcement that will shock many. Killer7 is an action-adventure title published by Capcom, and released on the Gamecube and PS2 back in 2005. Due to the unique story, visuals and music, it garnered a huge cult following.
As well as this, Suda51 also told attendees that another of his studio’s games was getting a remaster, namely Flower, Sun and Rain. This was a puzzle-solving adventure game release in 2001 in Japan only, then ported to the Nintendo DS in 2008 for Europe and 2009 for the US.
