Grasshopper to announce new game and help quake victims at live event

Grasshopper Manufacturer said today that its Grasstream 2 Ustream event, which was originally announced in February, will serve as a charity drive for earthquake relief.

The event, fully titled Grasstream 2: Travis vs Garcia, will feature live music, a talk from No More Heroes 2 character designer Yusuke Kozaki and mechanical designer Shigeto Koyama, a speech by Suda 51 on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, new trailer and info on Shadows of the Damned, and the announcement of Grasshopper's newest game. Localization firm 8-4 will be hosting the English language version of the live stream and will release the event as a podcast.

Fans in Tokyo can attend the event themselves. Tickets are 2,000 yen (about $25) at the door, and 1,500 if bought in advance at convenience store Lawson. The event will take place at Loft Plus One in Shinjuku on March 30. Doors open at 6:30 and the event starts an hour later.

For fans hoping to watch and donate from abroad, the event wills start at 12:30 a.m. PST in the United States, and 8:30 a.m. in the UK.

    Yeh where's the PS3 NMH? And can they confirm that they'll release NMH2 in HD as well? And then announce NMH3? That'd be swell.

    What I really want to hear is a release date for the American PS3 port of No More Heroes. They've had their mouths shut up it for way too long.

    i'd settle for anything from Suda51 really, the man is a whirling typhoon of character, and if it IS NMH3, then i'll be pacing up and down my room hoping time goes by quicker until it came out ^^

    It needs to be No More Heroes 3.

    Perhaps I am in the minority, but I would really love to see Grasshopper announce a new IP. Just finished playing some killer7 the other day and it still holds up, which I feel is a sign of an innovative team.

    Suda talking about Scott Pilgrim? What? Because it's so similar to No More Heroes, I guess...?
  • smashpro1 - March 25, 2011 9 p.m.

    No More Heroes 3, pleasepleasepleaseplease!
