Grasshopper CEO, Goichi ‘Suda15’ Suda, has given a hint as to what one can expect from Grasshopper’s next game. He revealed that the next game from Grasshopper will feature a new style of online functionality.
He confirmed that the game is slated for consoles but no exact platform has been set at this time, “Naturally we are interested in developing games for the next-gen platforms. We are investigating the specs and all that right now.”
A key visual for the game which can be seen above was released along side the game’s tag-line “What the hell are you looking at?” It is said to be set in the near future.
Suda51 spoke more on the new title, “This is going to be an action game obviously but the gameplay style is going to differ very much – it’ll be unique. This is a title that GungHo Japan and Grasshopper Manufacture is working on together collaboratively so there will be an online feature, because that’s their forte and what they specialize in. On the simplest level it will be social, but the word social is used and misinterpreted a lot these days. GungHo has over ten years of experience in providing online gaming services so that is their strength.”
When asked about the game’s online multiplayer aspects he had this to say, “This is a very new style of online feature, so there’s no example from the past.”
This is all very exciting for fans of Grasshopper and Suda51, but for now its all just part of the hype train. We will keep you updated on Suda51’s next game as more information comes to light.
