No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

Japanese development team to broadcast live on UStream to mark game's European release.

In the tradition of HOPPER'S Vol. 1-3, Grasshopper Manufacture is proud to present Grasstream: HOPPER'S TV, a live broadcast from the eccentric minds that brought you No More Heroes, Silent Hill, and Aquanaut's Holiday.

On Friday, May 28th, Suda 51, Akira Yamaoka, and Kazutoshi Iida will host HOPPER'S TV on the UStream video service and give fans a rare look inside Grasshopper Manufacture and the mad geniuses behind the games.

Tune in for live chats with Suda 51, Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), and Kazutoshi Iida (Tail of the Sun, Aquanaut's Holiday). DJ Happi-O will set the mood with a set of eclectic electronic music, while the trio talks about No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle and their vision for the future of Grasshopper Manufacture.

Joining us will be Weekly Famitsu’s Rolling Uchizawa and Gamer’s Angels game idol Megumi Ito.

In addition, all three will be taking part in a live Q & A session on Twitter via @Grasshopper_EN and @Grasshopper_JP.

During the show, Suda 51 will announce the winner of the first round of our “Quiz or DIE!” trivia challenge. We'll also have some exclusive, Australia-only Bizarre Jelly 5 T-Shirts to give away!

Since we have fans around the world, we want to give everyone a chance to talk to Suda, Yamaoka, and Iida. Fans can post questions on our Facebook page or send them to with the subject "Grasstream". We'll translate them and do our best to have them answered during Friday's show!
