Goichi Suda has told 4Gamer he wants to “thoroughly demolish the existing Grasshopper [Manufacture’s] traits,” in order to create new ideas and “new ways to play”.
In the interview, translated by Siliconera, Suda51 said titles will bold challenges are what’s in demand.
“I believe that when it comes to ‘Grasshopper traits,’ people have different ideas [as to what they are],” said Suda. “Even for us, each staff member at Grasshopper has different ideas. In the midst of that, I personally would like to thoroughly demolish the existing Grasshopper traits, one by one. And by demolishing them, I’d like to propose new ideas, and create new ways to play.
“I believe what’s most in demand for video games are titles with bold challenges and something that offers a new way to play. If we can properly make a game like that, I’m certain that it will reach out.”
Proposing such new ideas, according to Suda, will be the best way to gain the consumer’s acceptance.
