Infamous auteur, risk-taker and CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture, Suda 51, has announced that his studio is teaming up with publisher Digital Reality for future downloadable games. The duo's first collaboration is Sine Mora, a PSN and XBLA shooter which "mixes traditional side-scrolling gameplay with unique time manipulation mechanic." There are no further details on the game, but you can probably expect to be, hm, an assassin... who lives in a motel and talks a lot? Thaaaaat's Suda! (Laugh track.)

If you've done a bunch of missing out because you hate fun or something, Grasshopper Manufacture created the No More Heroes series, but is probably best known for the controversial killer7, a super-stylish PS2/GameCube action game which was both adored and scoffed at by critics and gamers. Suda knows the avant-garde ain't easy, but that's never stopped him, so expect Sine Mora to be loaded with more of his trademark imagination, and all in crisp HD.

Future titles and more details should be announced within the next few months.
