Congrats, Grasshopper Manufacture!
Worldwide sales of Lollipop Chainsaw have crossed the million mark, Grasshopper Manufacture has announced. The milestone took nearly two years to reach, following the saccharine zombie game's launch in June 2012.
That may not...
Cool eye patch, girl.
The stunning fifth and final episode of Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo's Short Peace anthology made its debut on PlayStation 3 in Japan today. I'm all kinds of jealous right now.
A sidescrolling action game, Ranko Tsukigi...

Just in time for the holidays
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 ...
Visual novel hits PlayStation 3 in Japan on December 5
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...
Quirky game developer offers clarity and praises indie games
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...

New Suda game trademarked
We learned about Lily Bergamo, a new game from Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture, last month when Suda51 took the stage at a Sony press conference in Japan. The team hopes to have the PS4 game playable by next TGS and relea...
What a rush!
Liberation Maiden Sin is all kinds of pretty. The follow-up to Grasshopper Manufacture's Nintendo 3DS shoot-'em-up is ascending to Japan on December 5 for PlayStation 3. Until then, check out the visual novel's exhilarating opening cinematic featuring music from Marina Nakamura.
Get it? Cause Lollipop Chainsaw
Either I totally missed it, or it's really about time someone made a Juliet Starling figurine. The chainsaw wielding hero from Lollipop Chainsaw will be getting a 1/8 scale figure, and is available for pre-order right now.
Ring in the New Year with a new Grasshopper game
Grasshopper Manufacture's next project is leaping to PlayStation 3 on January 16, 2014 in Japan. The fifth and final chapter of legendary Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo's Short Peace anthology, Ranko Tsukigime’s Lon...
Soaring to Japan on December 5
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.
New game from Grasshopper Manufacture
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...
Gigol-oh-no: What the creatively bankrupt, boring missions have to say about Killer is Dead
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...
Mega Mondo Zappa
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.
Debuts at number five with 17,709 units sold on PS3
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...
The whole game is going to be spoiled at this point
Hey Suda 51, you're great. I love your games. Killer Is Dead looks like it will be a lot of fun. But enough is enough! There's promotion, and then there's just spoiling every single little aspect of your game.
We've seen so ...
Plus Japanese rock band jesse and The Bonez featured in soundtrack
Yes! Killer Is Dead will feature both Japanese and English voiceover options. This is something I was hoping for forever, as I much prefer the Japanese voice actors over the English ones. As for the English voice cast, you c...
Headed to Android devices later this month
After a string of ports, Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture's well-regarded shmup Sine Mora has found its way to iOS. This version for iPad and iPhone is priced at $5.99 and was developed by Pocket Scientis...
Game releases in late August
Ever since word got out about Killer is Dead from Famitsu or wherever those initial screenshots originated, I've been trying to keep my distance so as to avoid spoiling any more than is necessary. Almost there! Grasshopper Ma...
Even more mental stuff
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...
More mental stuff
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!
Lots of pictures of a man doing a killing
Here's a gigantic bucket of screenshots for Grasshopper Manufacture's Killer Is Dead. You get to see our hero on the Moon, a grinning king, a lady in a dress, and a whole bunch of character stills. There's loads to gawp at.
Tiger tiger tiger!
Finally, a good look at Killer is Dead's gameplay. The first video here shows off some of the fighting mechanics with your sword and robotic gun arm. Plus we also get to see a boss fight against Hamadayama that starts off wi...
Includes DLC, costs no more than regular version
Deep Silver has revealed Killer Is Dead will be getting a premium edition.
It will include a bonus "Beauty & The Beast & The Lingerie" download, the "Temptation of Miss Vampire" gigolo mission, one extra epi...
And robot samurais too
The latest barrage of screens for Killer is Dead focuses on two of the bosses you'll encounter in the game. First there's Hamadayama, who rides around on a freaking tiger. Yes, a tiger. How badass is that? Then there's Samura...
Believes new home at GungHo will help
While sales of Suda51's games aren't always where publishers would like them to be, if there's one thing to be said, it's that those who do play the designer's titles sure are passionate about them. Speaking to GamesIndustry ...
Here is a new trailer for Killer Is Dead. If my intuition is correct, the underlying message of the video is that women have breasts. This startling revelation may representing a bold step forward for the field of human biol...
What is this I don't even
Jessica Nigri is reprising her role as a promotional model in Grasshopper Manufacture and Kadokawa Games' latest collaboration, Killer is Dead. After portraying Juliet Starling for Lollipop Chainsaw, Nigri takes on the ...
We fight for our people!
Liberation Maiden is getting a sequel! Well, sort of. It seems like Grasshopper Manufacture has decided to eschew Shoko's roots, following up last year's 3DS shooter with a visual novel for PlayStation 3.
According to Si...
