Grasshopper Manufacture, creator of offbeat titles Killer 7, No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned, has teamed up with Japanese social gaming company DeNA to work on new projects. Expect kooky results.

A new team, Grasshopper Social Network Service, has been created to work on a joint venture between DeNA and Grasshopper Manufacture for Japan’s Mobage platform.

“Our new venture with DeNA will allow us to explore creative ways to bring Grasshopper Manufacture’s universe to a new world of players,” said Goichi Suda, CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture. “Mobage’s world-class entertainment network and the power of social mobile games will unlock new types of experiences for our fans.”

A similar collaboration between Square Enix and DeNA was recently announced and will see a game based on the Final Fantasy IP hit the Mobage platform.

There’s no word on Western release for either project as yet.
