Grasshopper Manufacture Joins GungHo Online Developers

on January 30, 2013 10:14 AM

GungHo Online Entertainment has announced that is has acquired Grasshopper Manufacture, studio behind Suda51’s more recent games. Grasshopper will join GungHo Online’s other developers that include Game Arts, Acquire, and Gravity.

All titles currently under development by Grasshopper will not be affected by this deal with all titles still remaining under current publishing terms. Currently it seems that Xseed is set to publish Killer is Dead, which should involve no issues between the two companies considering that Xseed brought over Ragnarok Odyssey that was developed by Gravity.

GungHo Online and Grasshopper Manufacture coming together should provide an interesting combination and allow Suda51 and crew to work on some interesting titles without being restricted by funds or most publisher demands.
