In a new interview at Japanese outlet Automaton, Suda51 shared some more tidbits about working on new projects at Grasshopper Manufacture. Specifically, Suda51 had meetings with Marvel and talked with them about the “possibility of working together on something”. He hopes “the power of video games” will help boost the possibility of working with Marvel on a new project. Here’s what he had to say, courtesy of VGC:
“From now on, we’d like to create three new IPs and launch them one by one.
However, we have also said that we would like to make IPs that are based on attractive original works, if there are any. I think that will depend on the discussions we have with Marvel Studios. If Marvel Studios comes up with something good, we’ll think about it.
I’m sorry, I was saying that from the top down, I’m just kidding.
But we’ve had a few meetings with Marvel, and we’ve talked about the possibility of working together on something. We hope that the power of video games will help to boost these opportunities.”
We hope Suda51 gets that dream opportunity to work with Marvel on a new game with an iconic character like Deadpool. In the meantime, stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news and updates!
