Grasshopper Manufacture is a Japanese videogame developer that has built up a reputation for creative, bold projects that aren’t afraid to court controversy. With influential CEO Goichi Suda (a.k.a. Suda51) at the company’s helm, Grasshopper Manufacture has developed a number of celebrated titles including Killer7 and No More Heroes.
Speaking at a recently held event organised by Lollipop Chainsaw’s Japanese publisher Kadokawa Games, Suda51 said that global shipments of the game had reached 700 000 copies. This makes it Grasshopper Manufacture’s most commercially successful title in its 14-year history.
The developer’s next project is Killer is Dead, due out in 2013 for PS3 and Xbox 360.
