Girls Suda 51
Goichi Suda (須田 剛一 Suda Gōichi?, born January 2, 1968), also known as Suda 51, is the CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture and a former designer at Human Entertainment. The “51” in his nickname,Suda51, is a pun on his given name. In Japanese, “Go” means 5 and “ichi” means 1. His works include Moonlight Syndrome, The Silver Case, Flower, Sun and Rain, Michigan, killer7, the No More Heroesseries, and most recently, Shadows of the Damned and Lollipop Chainsaw. He was known to make appearances wearing a lucha libre mask while promoting killer7. He has been called an “auteur” video game director.
Suda and his studio also frequently collaborate with other developers, including creating the story sequences for the Wii title Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, Suda’s involvement in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (his nickname “Suda51” appears in the credits for the game’s “Subspace Emissary” mode), and a radio drama prequel to Snatcher with Hideo Kojima titled Sdatcher.
In August 2008, Electronic Arts announced a deal to publish Shadows of the Damned, an action horror game developed by Grasshopper in conjunction with Q Entertainment. The game was directed by Suda and produced by Shinji Mikami with music composed by Akira Yamaoka, and was released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in June 2011.
On January 26, 2010, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle for the Wii was released in North America, with successive releases in Europe and Japan later that year. It is one of the few Suda 51 directed franchises commercially successful enough to earn a sequel.
