The blood flows smoother than ever in Killer7’s new PC remaster trailer

Surreal murderventure Killer7 is a hallucinatory experience, and one that will be all the more vivid when it arrives on PC. Grasshopper Manufacture and NIS America have released a new trailer, showing off their upcoming PC remaster in action. Unsurprisingly, its razor sharp art direction holds up well at high resolutions, and a boost to framerate and an expansion to widescreen gives it a slick…

Grungy, wacky free-to-play hack n’ slasher Let It Die hits PC September 26th

Grasshopper Manufacture's offbeat dungeon crawler Let It Die hits PC on September 26th after nearly two years on PS4. While studio head Goichi "Suda51" Suda isn't director on this, his influence feels clear - as blood and rust-caked as Let It Die is, it's a very silly game, with an absurd joke to offset every Mortal Kombat-esque fatality animation. Part Dark Souls (especially in its…

Grasshopper’s Let It Die stabbing towards PC in autumn

Grasshopper Manufacture, the Japanese studio behind loud and stylish games including No More Heroes and The Silver Case, are bringing their free-to-play survival stabfest Let It Die from PlayStation 4 over to PC. First released in 2016, Let It Die is a brash action game set in a post-apocalyptic helltower where we fight upwards at the bidding of Uncle Death, a Grim Reaper who looks…

Killer7 remaster brings multiple personality murder to PC

Multiple personalities are kinda SUDA51's bag. Actually, everything about Killer7 is extremely SUDA51's bag. If a bag came to life and started monologuing during a SUDA51 game, that would also be on the level. What I'm saying is, if you've never noticed, I do believe that this gentleman has a predilection for making odd choices. And that oddness is perhaps at its most accessible (?)…

Feature: Grasshopper's future hopes for the PC

Interview: Suda 51 On The Silver Case & Future Remakes

Working on the remastered version of The Silver Case gave Suda 51 an opportunity to come face-to-face with a young Goichi Suda. They are one in the same, of course, but it was the 1999 release of The Silver Case that set Suda 51 on the path to becoming the game developer he is today. “The game was made by the young Suda,” he told…

The Silver Case Remake Is Out In October

Polish your magnifying glasses, The Silver Case [official site] PC remake now has a demo. This bit of the remake was originally shown at this year's BitSummit in Kyoto, Japan. The demo features the beginning of the first chapter of the game, Decoyman, giving you a brief chance to situate yourself in the story as a member of Republic, a Special Forces Unit. The Silver…

First Blood: Suda51’s The Silver Case Coming To PC

Grasshopper Manufacture, the studio led by Suda51, has made some incredibly strange games. Often excessively violent and surreal, they're the kind of things that capture my imagination immediately but often beat that same imagination to a pulp long before I reach the ending of whatever story they're spinning. Killer7 is the only Grasshopper game that I love but I'll always be interested to see what…

Killer Is Dead To Live Again On PC

I've just had a quick shuffle through the RPS lunar archives, where old posts are stored in a air-conditioned crater, and I can't find a single mention of Grasshopper's Killer Is Dead. Does this mean we didn't know that it was coming out on PC until this very moment? It certainly seems that way. From Killer 7 director Suda 51, it's an action game about…

Please, Sir, Can I Have Some Sine Mora?

When the splendid time-bending shoot 'em up Sine Mora arrived on PC after a long delay in the land of porting, I lamented the fact that the trial version wasn't available alongside the full release. As an XBLA game, the game already had a demo so it seemed odd that it had been lost during transition. Fortunately, it wasn't lost entirely and did in fact…

Where The Bad Bullets Go: Sine Mora Out Now

We did acknowledge the port of side-scrolling time-bending shooter Sine Mora a couple of weeks ago, but now that the game is out, perhaps you'd like to see a PC launch trailer? I played the game on the 360th Box and even though my bullet-dodging skills are more like those of a lobby security goon than a KeaNeo, I actually managed to complete it. Although…
