Reports – Grasshopper Manufacture figureheads leave dev

Grasshopper Manufacture, the Japanese developer home to the iconic Suda 51 has lost two of its key staff, Siliconera reports.

Harvest Moon creator Yasuhrio Wada  and Little King’s Story creator Yoshiro Kimura have apparently left the company after joining last year. Wada came on as COO while Kimura took the role of CCO. Both devs seem to have left in August. No reason was given for their departure.

Grasshopper is currently working on a range of titles including Lollipop Chainsaw, which is looking suitably mad, coming from this team. Hopefully this loss won’t affect the game too much.
