This is the insanity that is Diabolical Pitch


5:00 PM on 03.05.2012



If you haven't noticed by now, Destructoid attended a Microsoft Showcase event last week where we got to check out their 2012 line-up. We saw a bunch of titles, such as Grasshopper Manufacture's Diabolical Pitch.

I went hands-on with the lovely Tara Long and we ran down what you can expect from the game. It's a pretty simple to play downloadable Kinect title, but at the same time it is weird as f*ck. It'd be even weirder if it wasn't a weird game seeing as it is Grasshopper though.

It's also worth noting that the game has come a long way since Tokyo Game Show. It was hard getting Diabolical Pitch to even work properly last year, but this time around the Kinect was able to pick up all of my movements without any annoying lag.

This Diabolical Pitch trailer raises even more questions

And now I see why Hamza called Grasshopper Manufacture's Diabolical Pitch a "fighting baseball hybrid thing." I am similarly struggling to come up with humanly descriptors here. Perhaps that's just the Suda51 way. It'll be i...more

Suda 51's next game Let it Die will be exclusive to PS4

Suda 51 is infamous for games featuring ultraviolence and kooky psychological storylines. Though his games have become a bit more easily digestible over time, he still commands a lot of attention when he attaches his name to...more

Liberation Maiden Sin gets shiny new opener for Vita

Liberation Maiden Sin probably isn't ever getting localized, but we can always hope. The visual novel based on Grasshopper Manufacture's Nintendo 3DS shooter is definitely coming to PlayStation Vita, though. That's happening in Japan this summer. And the folks at Mages have put together a new opening cinematic for the game. So watch that and weep softly.more
