Grasshopper Manufacture trademarks Diabolical Pitch

By Johnny Cullen, Wednesday, 12 January 2011 16:32 GMT


According to a trademark filing found by Siliconera, Grasshopper has trademarked the name Diabolical Pitch.

The name could be the full title of the developer’s Kinect project that was announced at Tokyo Game Show last September, Codename D.

The trailer for that showed off a creepy fairground with all sorts of stuff happening within.

It’s due out sometime this year according to comments from Grasshopper’s Suda 51 in Tokyo last autumn.
