Suda51 confirms Let It Die is still alive, planned for 2016 release

Playable on the PAX East showfloor

It's been almost two years since we last saw Let It Die, Grasshopper Manufacture's free-to-play action game in development for PlayStation 4. In a new video uploaded by GungHo Online Entertainment, however, director Suda51 and producer Kazuki Morhishita confirm that the game is still very much alive.

Watch the behind-the-scenes look at development on Let It Die as the pair explain why they've kept quiet since Tokyo Game Show 2014. Fans of the studio behind No More Heroes, Killer 7 and other quirky games will find that Let It Die still looks much the same as it did in 2014.

Unlike older Grasshopper games, the upcoming brawler focuses on online multiplayer and offers microtransactions. It will still feature the developer's signature brutal combat and absurdity, however: Players take on the role of an underwear-clad protagonist who beats up enemies to steal their gear, according to the game's reveal at E3 2014.

Its official website confirms a 2016 release, and Suda51 will soon reveal the first playable build of the game. A demo for Let It Die will be available to try out during PAX East, which takes place in Boston later this month.
