Suda51‘s studio Grasshopper Manufacture is planning a follow-up to Shadows of the Damned, according to composer Akira Yamaoka.
“I’m thinking of a sequel, actually,” said Yamaoka at the London launch of XBLA shooter Sine Mora. “I can’t tell you here, but clearly I’d like to.”
What’s more, it seems EA - via the EA Partners programme - are also keen on the idea. When asked if the label was interested, Yamaoka replied, “Probably,” before adding, “Well, yes.”
Shadows of the Damned was released last year, picking up some fans for it's bonkers action stylings. Not quite so enthusatic, in our review Dan said, "Grasshopper nearly has the makings of a franchise that could have a decent future."
Sine Mora is out now on XBLA. If bullet-ridden shooters are your thing, check it out. It's good.
