Grasshopper Manufacture

Killer is Dead was a day one purchase for me, though from what I hear from my peers, a lot of consumers didn't have the confidence to pick it up upon initial release. With the gift giving holidays just around the corner, and ...
Books are pretty nice. You can read them. They can also be used to provide warmth. Should you ever find yourself taking refuge in a library after climate change suddenly leaves your city flooded and freezing cold, that funct...
In this hurricane of emotions and hype during the release of the next-gen consoles, it's easy to get caught up in fandom and want to stick with what you know most. Because of this, Suda51 spoke his mind about the current situ...

Liberation Maiden Sin is unfairly pretty. The follow-up to Grasshopper Manufacture's Nintendo 3DS shoot-'em-up is descending on Japan come December 5. Unfortunately, it's a visual novel, which all but ensures the PlayStation 3 exclusive won't see a release on Western shores.
Killer is Dead's Suda51 took the stage at Sony's press conference in Japan to announce a new PS4 game, Lily Bergamo. It's apparently an action game -- "extreme action" and "supreme action" -- but little was shown outside...
I really like Killer is Dead. I want to like it more, but I’m increasingly unsure if I should. Unfortunately, the awful Gigolo missions are a big part of planting the seed of distrust in my mind. Hah! I bet you thought...
Killer is Dead's hero Mondo Zappa has a pretty hard life! In-between traveling the world in search of love, he has to kill countless creatures, humans, and even face his own nightmares on a regular basis. As such, it can be pretty helpful to have a few allies outside of the Bryan Execution Firm, so here are some basic tips to get your started.
Mainstream success has largely eluded Grasshopper Manufacture. Despite giving birth to beloved properties like No More Heroes, the studio has had trouble garnering much of an audience outside of a devout cult following all to...

So many screenshots of Killer Is Dead have been released, I swear you could print them out and staple them together in flickbook form, and have the entire game at your disposal.  Anyway, here's another buggering flickloa...
Here's a new trailer for Killer Is Dead. It's got some really good music, a load of talking in Japanese, and a boss battle showcase against a man who wears very little clothing and appears to wear a crown. Henceforth, I dub him King Quasi-Naked. For those who don't want to spoil the weirdness, I must urge once more that this video may give away too much for you. View with caution!

2013 is the year of Suda51's next production, Killer Is Dead. In January, the game began its PR train with a cool, stylishly seductive trailer that oh teased us so. However, Famitsu was able to get a detailed interview out of him and his partner-in-crime from Kadokawa Games, Yoshimi Yasuda, in which they discuss everything from American Psycho and Bond, to gigolos and tiger-riding yakuza!
Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Suda 51 is apparently more than a little excited for the PS4. In fact, the eccentric game designer claims to be horny for Sony's upcoming console. Let's hope it's not because he's had some thoughts...
