Suda 51 is teasing a new action game, set for release in 2014.
The Grasshopper Manufacture boss - creator of Killer7, No More Heroes and Lollipop Chainsaw - is tight-lipped about what the game is, beyond saying that it will be “unique.”
What we do know, however, is that the game is set in the near future, will have some kind of online functionality, and a tagline of, “What the hell are you looking at?” There’s some art for the game below.
Speaking to Edge, Suda51 said "This is going to be an action game obviously but the gameplay style is going to differ very much - it'll be unique. This is a title that GungHo Japan and Grasshopper Manufacture is working on together collaboratively so there will be an online feature, because that's their forte and what they specialise in.
"On the simplest level it will be social, but the word social is used and misinterpreted a lot these days. GungHo has over ten years of experience in providing online gaming services so that is their strength. This is a very new style of online feature, so there's no example from the past."
Grasshopper Manufacture is currently working on Killer is Dead, which is due out this summer.
