Contact is immediately recognisable as a product of SUDA51’s eccentric design, beginning with a retro stylised monitor asking you to configure your save data through virtual F Keys on the Touch Screen before refusing to give the player any indication of how to start playing the game. Only upon tapping our friend the professor will the game react, and immediately the fourth wall is broken. The player is not playing a game, but responding directly to that which is asked of him or her. Contact then takes things an inch further, reminding the player that it is in fact a game, and that the conversation they just had was one of entirely predetermined consequence.
Grasshopper Manufacture, known for its work on No More Heroes and Killer is Dead, is teasing something major for 15 June 2023.
Today Grasshopper Manufacture has launched a teaser website with a countdown hinting that "something's gonna happen" in approximately 71 days.
No More Heroes III came to new platforms earlier this month with the release of PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam) versions, so Gematsu sat down with No More Heroes series creator and Grasshopper Manufacture founder Goichi “Suda 51” Suda to discuss the game’s new elements, creating the series’ finale, if it’s really the series’ finale, PlayStation and Xbox versions of the first two games, and more.
