Suda 51 is very interested in online gaming.  He is even considering bringing online functionality to No More Heroes on the Wii:

When asked about the chances of online play appearing in No More Heroes, Suda replied, “This is still up in air. Personally, I am very interested in online play.” 

Should online play fail to make the final cut, there’s every chance that Suda will go on to concentrate on an online game for his next project: “I want to undertake an online game once the No More Heroes project is completed,” he said. 

I hope Nintendo keeps the third-parties in the loop about online play for the Wii!
