Why Suda51 wants to 'thoroughly demolish the existing Grasshopper traits'

Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi "Suda51" Suda wants to "thoroughly demolish" the traits associated with the studio that created games like Lollipop Chainsaw, Killer Is Dead and No More Heroes, according to a 4Gamer interview that was translated by Siliconera. Suda acknowledged that, even within Grasshopper, the studio's traits are debatable but ready for destruction. "I believe that when it comes to ‘Grasshopper traits,' people have different ideas [as to what they are]," Suda said. "Even for us, each staff member at Grasshopper has different ideas. "In the midst of that, I personally would like to thoroughly demolish the existing Grasshopper traits, one by one. And by demolishing them, I'd like to propose new ideas, and create new ways to play". The idea behind that creative...

Grasshopper Manufacture boss Goichi "Suda51" Suda sold his studio to publisher GungHo Online Entertainment because he wants the studio to be an in-house developer, according to an interview with 4Gamer (in Japanese). GungHo announced earlier this week that it bought Grasshopper, the developer behind games like Lollipop Chainsaw, No More Heroes and the upcoming Killer Is Dead. Both Grasshopper and GungHo confirmed yesterday that all projects that are currently in development will continue as usual and will not be affected by the studio acquisition. When asked why he chose to sell the studio, Suda said that up until now Grasshopper Manufacture has mostly worked with big clients and many of the difficulties it has encountered has resulted from its role as an "outsourced developer."
