Grasshopper Manufacture acquired by GungHo
GungHo, best known for Ragnarok Online, stated that combining Grasshopper's development team with its own, the two will be better able to release high quality titles.
"We believe the strength of a publisher lies in its creative talent so with the addition of Grasshopper Manufacture and Suda 51 we are adding some of the most innovative talent in today's gaming world to our stellar family of independently-operated studios," GungHo CEO Kazuki Morishita said of the acquisition.
"Suda 51 projects are known to put a unique spin on every game so coupled with our proven ability to support development with AAA resources including a tailored online experience, we believe gamers will benefit from this collaboration," he concluded.
