Suda 51 announces Sine Mora, a new XBLA/PSN shooter featuring "unique time manipulation"

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.

    {AWESOME SPOILERS} One of Suda's consle games has an amazing and totally unexpected shmup that pops up randomly halfway through. I suggest buying all Grasshopper console games just so you don't miss it.

    Isn't "sine mora" latin for "without delay"? I would love it sooo much if this game got delayed.

    It's pronounced like cine-matic, not co-sine?

    All you had to say was that Suda 51 was making a new game and I'd already be interested.

    I can't wait to try this. Suda's games are also so crazy, I'm sure I'll like this one too.

    "Time Manipulation?" Thats how they got me to buy Blinx. Then again that was a good game too.

    I don't have a Wii, so I haven't been able to play the No More Heroes games. I'm glad he's bringing some games to other platforms, so I can get my hands on some Suda.

    I love Suda 51, he's such a great guy and all the games he's involved in always have a wonderful style. He's very individual. Therefore, you can consider me interested.
