Goichi Suda

Got info on Goichi Suda?

"Hi, I’m the director of No More Heroes, I’m basically in control of the scenarios and the game design – I’m also the CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture, which was established in 1998. Before that I’ve been working on titles for specifically the Japanese market, but since working on Killer 7 I’ve wanted to make more action titles, which is how I came up with No More Heroes. People often say that the work I’m doing now appeals more to the European and US market than the Japanese market – so that’s why at TGS I’m doing interviews with mostly Western press! There isn’t that much interest from Japanese press.

I started in the industry by making Pro Wrestling video games. There’s a classic Japanese series called Fire Pro Wrestling, which was developed by Human back then. In 1994 I worked on the third instalment of the series, which I enjoyed because I’m a big fan of Pro Wrestling! Working on that title was the reason why I wanted to join the video games industry."

Software Highlights from Credited Titles

Goichi Suda's first video game work that SPOnG is aware of is the 2008 title, "No More Heroes" (Wii) as Original Concept.
