Strange announcement, stranger interview.
Electronic Arts said at a media briefing at its Redwood City headquarters Thursday that it would partner with Japanese developer Grasshopper Manufacture (maker of No More Heroes) to produce a multi-platform, horror-themed videogame. On hand to discuss the partnership were director Goichi Suda (right) and producer Shinji Mikami (left).
Of course, since absolutely no details about the project have been revealed, Suda and Mikami couldn't actually talk about much of anything. And there were several times when they engaged in some spirited back-and-forth with their translator about whether or not they could say things that they'd already said.
Even with all the confusion, jokes about high school baseball, etc., it was an interesting 20 minutes. Read on for the results.
