Grasshopper Manufacture has been aiming for years to be owned by Nintendo, but I guess after the flop that was NMH3, I guess that's understandable. Still, it's pretty sad that their games may not be as they used to.

Flop?! Where'd you get that from? Lol

The sales haven't been that good AFAIK. And I know where you came from, NMH is one of my favorite franchises, but the reception the 3rd game has received was quite shocking in comparison to the original. You barely see people talking about the remastered collection on PC.

I'm not surprised that they are getting acquired by a large publisher. I think most of their games are commercial flop.

It's quite sad that they don't hit millions, but their games are high quality. Ngl, Killer is Dead and Killer 7 are a work of art.

Here's hoping that means they make more games with bigger budgets.
