Grasshopper Manufacture’s gonzo director, Goichi Suda, has commented on the underwhelming sales of Shadows of the Damned.
Goichi Suda/ Shinji Mikami collaboration, Shadows of the Damned, launched in Europe and North America this Summer to poor sales. Just 9145 copies were sold in Japan during its opening week.
“Of course we always wish to have a big hit, but at the same time – not just in Japan, but worldwide – I think it’s really difficult to be successful with a new IP,” said Suda 51 speaking with Eurogamer.
“You really need an extraordinary amount of support to have a new franchise be successful. Unfortunately we couldn’t really do as well as we hoped for.”
Suda added that he had a lot of ideas for online features to appear in the game that didn’t make the cut.
“I had lots of ideas for online. If I could do it over again I would definitely include online features.”
Shadows of the Damned is out now on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
