When it comes to cult classics in the gaming world, one name that stands out is Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture. Titles like No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw, and Shadows of the Damned have garnered a dedicated fanbase over the years. While these games might not have been massive commercial successes, their unique and quirky elements have endeared them to many gamers.

Suda51 is now rewarding his loyal fanbase with remasters of his classic titles, with Shadows of the Damned: Hella Remastered being one of them. In a recent interview with GameRant at PAX East 2024, Suda expressed his desire to create a sequel featuring the protagonist Garcia Hotspur, if the remasters perform well.

"Putting out a sequel is definitely something we would like to consider. So, make sure you buy as many copies as you can find in the stores," Suda stated, urging fans to show their support.

Even if a sequel to Shadows of the Damned doesn't materialize, Suda hinted at the possibility of these beloved characters making appearances in other projects. He mentioned his attachment to characters like Garcia Hotspur and antagonist Fleming, revealing that Fleming almost had a significant role in No More Heroes 3 at one point.

Suda shared, "I do have a soft spot in my heart for the characters in the game, specifically Garcia Hotspur and Fleming. Having these characters come out in something again, whether it's a sequel or something else, is highly possible."

For fans hoping for a Shadows of the Damned sequel, the key is to support the remaster when it releases. While an official release date for the remaster is yet to be confirmed, it is expected to launch sometime this year. So, keep an eye out for it and remember to grab a copy to show your enthusiasm for a potential sequel.

Exciting times lie ahead for Suda51 fans, as the prospect of revisiting the world of Shadows of the Damned and its memorable characters is on the horizon. Whether it's a sequel or a crossover, the future looks bright for these beloved characters in the gaming universe.
