Grasshopper Manufacture, Digital Reality collabo confirmed for release on XBLA, PSN; new trailer inside.
Between Killer 7, No More Heroes, Shadows of the Damned, and Lollipop Chainsaw, it can safely be said that Grasshopper Manufacture has a flare for the eccentric. However, the Suda 51-led Japanese studio appears to be playing it a bit more conventional with its side-scrolling shoot-'em-up Sine Mora, which today was given a winter release window.
Sine Mora is the first title in Grasshopper's collaboration with Hungarian outfit Digital Reality. The game is being touted by the companies as traditional genre gameplay tweaked with time manipulation mechanics and support for 3D displays. The resulting mix will be available as a downloadable game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Grasshopper has a number of projects in development beyond Sine Mora. In addition to the aforementioned Lollipop Chainsaw, the studio is crafting a pair of DS remakes for its Silver Case series. The studio is also collaborating with Microsoft on a Kinect-enabled project titled Codename D.
As for Digital Reality, the publisher-developer's most notable upcoming project is Skydrift, a third-person flight combat-racing title that's due for release this summer for Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network, and PC.
Its been long time since i played a good shoot 'em up and i really hope this will become a crazy one. What troubles me are the last words in this video:"what would you do if you knew how much time you had left?".I really hope this doesnt mean that a timelimit plays a role.I have enough pressure at my work,i wanna relax and enjoy a game when i am back home :)
Meh, if only 5pb would translate some of their games for the US but that'd be a huge undertaking with all that text. It'd be awesome to play some other games like 999 except on the consoles.
