Grasshopper Manufacture has plans to create three original intellectual property over the next 10 years, according to studio founder Goichi “Suda 51” Suda.
Here is the full quote from Suda, speaking during the IGN Japan “Garden of Madness” No More Heroes III launch live stream:
“Over the next 10 years, we have three original IP that we’re going to be creating. It’s a 10-year plan. Of course, there are other things coming beyond those, but I have five projects that I currently have to work on, so we’re going to launch the new IP one title at a time.
“Though I would also like to do something based on a Marvel property. Maybe a movie with Shatterstar as the main character—well, there’s also Deadpool, but maybe a more [Grasshopper Manufacture]-like character? Shatterstar should be good then. Or how about my personal favorite, Quicksilver, as the main character—or Shatterstar? That would be fun, yeah? (Laughs.) Or, hmm, maybe (laughs) Venom would also be good? I really want to try my hand at a Marvel property one day.
“Nonetheless, for us here at Grasshopper, I want to strengthen our original IP, and offer our fans new games to play. So please look forward to them. First, we’ll focus on making these three games over the next 10 years.”
Thanks, Games Talk.
