Grasshopper Manufacture is a very busy studio indeed, what with Black Knight Sword, Sine Mora, Lollipop Chainsaw and now this newly unveiled Kinect title at the Tokyo Games Show, Diabolical Pitch in its upcoming portfolio of games.
Originally announced at TGS last year as 'Codename D', Diabolical Pitch puts you in the shoes of a baseball player lobbing balls at an onslaught of oncoming monsters. Yes, you read that right. It's typically mental stuff from Suda 51 and his dev team.
On a lurid day-glo playing field, two players can band together to pitch and bat balls at monsters, lifting one another up for a health boost or holding hands to launch a sort of 'fusion' attack against the waves of antagonistic demons. Madness. It's nice to see something original for Kinect though. Diabolical Pitch will be heading exclusively to XBLA.
