SUDA51 On The Pax West Panel
During PAX West on September 2nd, Grasshopper Manufacture’s SUDA51 who directed “The Silver Case” original game and acted as producer for the HD Remaster version for PC, and Active Gaming Media’s Douglas Watt who directed the HD Remaster version for PC will be present on the panel to talk about the significance behind reproducing a past work.
■ Date and time: 9/2/2016, from 14:00 (PST)

■ Topic: Reviving the Past: On Preserving Past Works
■ Details: 17 years on from its original release in 1999, Grasshopper will release its maiden work “The Silver Case” this Fall 2016 worldwide for PC. Why distribute this game worldwide, which up until now was only available in Japan? Why choose PC as the platform for the remastered version of a game originally released on Sony PlayStation? In an age where hundreds of new games are released on a daily basis and consumed at an accelerated pace, we will be talking about the significance of reproducing a past work.

What Is The Silver Case?
1999 – the “24 Wards”. A string of mysterious serial killings plagues the city.
The detectives of the 24 Wards Heinous Crimes Unit have their eyes on one man: Kamui Uehara, legendary serial killer and assassin of a number of government officials 20 years prior in the now-famous “Silver Case”. However, nobody knows the true identity of Kamui. Has he really returned? Who is this infamous serial killer?
The player takes control of the protagonist, a member of the Special Forces Unit “Republic”, from a first-person perspective.
The game takes inspiration from the adventure game and visual novel genres, leading the player through an in-depth story in which the truth is gradually revealed as they solve various puzzles, offering a fresh and unique experience.
“The Silver Case” was the debut game of developer SUDA51, who has worked on “Flower, Sun and Rain”, “killer 7”, the “No More Heroes” series, “Lollipop Chainsaw” and currently “LET IT DIE”. Now, “The Silver Case HD Remaster” will become the maiden work of Grasshopper Manufacture Inc., scheduled for release this fall, 2016 on various PC distribution platforms.
The game will be fully remastered, while retaining the same atmosphere of the original 1999 game for Sony PlayStation, and the game will be fully localized into English for the first time, finally giving the chance to fans of SUDA51 worldwide to enjoy “The Silver Case” in English.
