Games currently in development!
A project announced on October 20, 2010 will be one of two Grasshopper titles published by Kadokawa Games, the other being Lollipop Chainsaw. Development is being led by Suda and Sonic the Hedgehog co-creator Yuji Naka, the latter who describes it as "an action title that takes place in the sky."
Described as an amalgamation of the play-styles in killer7 and No More Heroes, Grasshopper's latest announcement is Killer Is Dead, which places players in the role of an Executioner tasked with eliminating S-Level Criminals. The game was planned as early as the end of 2009, and is allegedly not a precursor or sequel to killer7 despite sharing its title with a short story Suda wrote to explain the background of Dan Smith, a character in that game.
Flower, Sun, and Rain was considered for a follow-up around 2009, when Suda admitted he would like to write protagonist Sumio Mondo into a future video game.
Michigan: Report from Hell was in 2009 an idea Suda wished to remake or follow with a sequel.
Contact was a title director Akira Ueda planned in 2006 to follow without the involvement of Grasshopper Manufacture. While a sequel has yet to be developed, Ueda confirmed he would like to work with Suda on a second installment.
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle has been planned to receive a sequel since 2009, though according to Suda, "it won't happen soon." In 2011, Suda confirmed he was demonstrated Wii U hardware and was considering how to go about a sequel on that platform.
Shadows of the DAMNED was a title composer Akira Yamaoka admitted in 2012 that he was considering a sequel to, feeling relatively certain that Grasshopper would have Electronic Arts' support
Lollipop Chainsaw was discussed in a 2012 interview with Polygon where Suda said he would like to sequelize the game. This interview took place before the game's release however and Suda offered few other words about a second installment, so it is unclear if Lollipop Chainsaw is still considered sequel-material.
