image Grasshopper Manufacture director Goichi Suda is involved in a bunch of projects. He’s developing Lily Bergamo with GungHo Online Entertainment, contributing to Liberation Maiden Sin with Mages, and working on Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day.


This PlayStation 3 sidescroller is the fifth story in Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo’s upcoming film, Short Peace. Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day will be released as a combo with the film on January 16, 2014. The movie/game combo will retail for 6,980 yen ($70).

    maybe a suda game will be positively recieved this time round?

  • Solomon_Kano

    Ohhhh so it’s coming in a combo. I was wondering how they were going to make the last part of the story completely separate without some damn good marketing, so this makes sense.

    How did she get Rikka’s Jaou Shingan?!

  • Zeonsilt

    All Suda51 games are great(though,maybe too easy).
    I recently Platinum’d Lollipop Chainsaw and not so long ago – Shadows of the Damned,it was pretty fun.
    Next on my list – Killer is Dead.

      Try Liberation Maiden on hard.

  • Freud_Hater

    …Hey, that looks pretty cool ‘.’ Very Japanese… Interesting :3

  • Cool! ^_^

  • I really hope we get this, first Grasshopper game I’ve been interested in in ages.

  • Shady Shariest

    Suda… Has he ever done ANYTHING not out of ordinary? (Not sure if this is one of the fabled Japanese Marketing thingies)

    On the topic: This seems kinda weird-ish… In a good way! Bundling a game with the film seems like a smart move, and if i was a fan, things like this would definitely get on my shopping list :3

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      Samurai Champloo Sidetracked? But even that one is insane (It’s a hack & slash/DJ/breakdance hybrid thing that had one of the busiest HUD’s in gaming history).

      • Shady Shariest

        Uhh… The game appears to have flying simulator’s hud o_O’

        • Juan Andrés Valencia

          What kind of flying simulators have you been playing? XD

          Not even X-Plane or… EVE Online have tricktime and time indicators, health and weapon bars, a neat puppet jumping near a dartboard, the amount of money you have and some seizure inducing slash number (AKA combo) indicators. At least the map and health bar are normal? Anyways, no, he hasn’t made a normal game, even Michigan: Report From Hell is weird.

          • Shady Shariest

            Those Cauges brought flying first into my mind :3 So i wen’t with that :3
