Suda 51 has recently said that the game No More Heroes 2 was influenced by the film 'From Dusk Till Dawn' by Quentin Tarantino among other things. When Suda was asked by Official Nintendo Magazine if Tarantino was the influence he replied:
"Yes. Yes. For example, do you know the movie From Dusk Till Dawn? It's a vampire movie starring Tarantino and George Clooney. Near the start of the movie they go to a motel. That image of the motel was my inspiration for the motel in Santa Destroy in No More Heroes. "

"Of course, it looks like any motel in the US, but it was the image of the motel in From Dusk Till Dawn that inspired me to make my motel look like that."
If you play No More Heroes 2 you'll be able to see many more subtle references to pop culture over the last 40 years or so and it's not surprising that Tarantino is one of those influences for Suda and his team at grasshopper Manufacture. Maybe they could contact Tarantino if he ever gets interested in making games sometime in the future?
