There may come a day when a new version of Killer7 is released, as Suda51 has pitched the idea of making a complete version of the game with Capcom in the future.
Suda51 spoke to Nintendo Life about the possibility of making an extended version of Killer7 that used all of the script that he originally wrote for the game, as he had only been able to use a third of what he had written.
"I had a very interesting conversation recently with the producer at Capcom, [Hiroyuki] Kobayashi-san and we promised each other that we will make a completed version of Killer7 in the future. Only one third of my original script was used for the game, so there was 60% not used at all.
So the complete version will cover all of my script. It’s not 100% going to happen of course, but maybe in the future we’ll be able to deliver the complete version of Killer7. I’ll do it before I retire!"
Suda51 also talked about porting the remastered version of Killer7 that is currently available on Microsoft Windows to the Nintendo Switch.
"I want to be involved in the process. It may take a bit of time, but it’s definitely one of my goals."
Killer7 is a game that mixes several genres together, but it mostly involves on-rails shooting segments that are interspersed with cutscenes and puzzles. The player takes on the role of a group of assassins who possess unique abilities and are all different personas of a single elderly man.
Killer7 is regarded as one of the most peculiar games of all time, as it meshed several different gameplay styles together and wrapped them around a bizarre story that might seem off-putting to those who aren't used to Suda51's particular style of madness. Killer7 also managed to attract a cult fanbase who appreciate the game for all of its strange design choices and its uniqueness.
Suda51 doesn't seem to think that a complete version of Killer7 is coming any time soon, but the fact that there is support for the idea from within Capcom gives us hope that one of the strangest video games of all time can be brought back in a new form and made even stranger than before.
