Suda51, DeMartini hint at TGS reveal for Grasshopper-Mikami horror
Cologne’s so last week, darlin’. It’s all Tokyo from here on out.
EA Partners boss David DeMartini has hinted we may see a reveal of the horror collaboration between Goichi Suda and Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami at Tokyo Game Show next month.
DeMartini said Suda and Mikami have total freedom to make the game as they see fit.
“We’ve allowed [Suda] the opportunity to fully explore his creativity,” he told Eurogamer.
“The key thing is not for us to tone down Suda or try and westernise Suda, but to try and make sure the game gets broad enough exposure that more people appreciate it.”
When asked by the site if a Japanese reveal in September was likely and made sense, DeMartini only said: “Yes”.
As for Suda, all he said to EG at an event in Cologne last Wednesday, where he announced his new PSN and XBLA title Sine Mora, was this:
“Don’t worry. It’ll come soon.”
Does next month sound soon enough, Goichi?
“I’m not sure. But of course, please come to Tokyo.”
The project between Suda and Mikami was announced in 2008. EA confirmed it was a PS360 and PC title at the time, although DeMartini only confirmed to EG it was a PS3 and 360 game.
EA’s hosting a Tokyo showcase before TGS begins, where new games are expected to be announced.
That sound you hear is two and two being put together.
