We headed over to the Gungho offices to talk with Hideyuki Shin, game director of Let It Die, the next goretastic game by Grasshopper Manufacture and Goichi Suda.

Get an inside look at this amazing game from the minds who making it, in the above video interview.

    So… is it going to be completely uncensored in the west, and what platforms is it on

    Playstation 4, and as far as I know, no Suda 51 or Grasshopper Manufacture game has ever been censored. Hope you enjoyed the video.

    They have been censored… in Japan. No More Heroes removed most of the blood, if I recall correctly.

    I’m getting the feeling that the game is probably getting delayed. I saw a few mentions of the word “early” for the game, which seems odd considering it only has, at most, a little over a month to release.

    No More Heroes’s PAL release was censored by removing the blood effects and replacing it with gold coins of money

    Surprisingly enough, it fits the game’s themes and satire like a glove.

    Man. Grasshopper Manufacture post-No More Heroes 2 has been disappointing. Hopefully this game is good.

    I’ve played the game on several occasions for a cumulative number of hours.. it’s really fun at its core. I think the real question will be how long it will be appealing as you play it over a long period of time, esp. with the whole Demons/Dark Souls-esque player data being inserted into your game to screw you over, etc. Overall though it’s a fun game. I’m excited for it!

    NMH 2 wasn’t that good either.
