Did You Forget About Flower, Sun, and Rain?

imageWe hinted at Grasshopper Manufacture’s future earlier in the morning. Now, let’s take a look at their past.


Flower, Sun, and Rain was one of Grasshopper’s earlier games. Even though FSR is coming out on the Nintendo DS this week, it was originally a PlayStation 2 game. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days developer, H.a.n.d., adapted the game with touch screen puzzles and a hidden No More Heroes costume.


Xseed’s version comes out tomorrow and it seems to be getting little, if any buzz. In an interview with Joystiq, Jun Iwasaki, President of Xseed, said, “So we considered, ‘is it appropriate to bring to the US or not?’ And considered it again and again, so finally we decided ‘okay,’ we’ll try to launch. This takes a long time of consideration.” It sounds there was a chance that Xseed was going to pass on publishing Flower, Sun, and Rain. After a release date switch from March to June Flower, Sun, and Rain will finally come out this week.


Did Xseed make the right choice picking this up? Are you still interested a Groundhog Day style adventure game?

    I know I’m interested. :3

  • Oh I’ll play it sooner or later, I just forgotten about it.

    Did anyone play the PS2 version?
    Either way it seems like an interesting game to pass up on all the way.

    Also, The Silver Case games are getting a DS remake too. I haven’t heard much about them anymore so I hope it isn’t cancelled.

    • Sooner or later here too. I can never say no to 51.

  • Ereek

    I’m very interested, but so many games have come out in the last two months that I’m already behind on what I want to play. When I catch up, I’ll probably pick this up.

    I had mine on pre-order for a while

    It can’t be any worse than Hotel Dusk…

    • What do you mean? Hotel Dusk was great. But hey, everyone has different tastes.

    • Viljo

      I’ll put it this way: Hotel Dusk is way better than this. Actually, it’s awesome compared to FSR.
