It’s Friday and you know what that means: another installment of the Grasshopper Manufacture podcast. Once again Grasshopper employees Esteban Salazar and John Davis are your hosts and this time they have a very special guest. Acclaimed composer Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill 2) joins the show to discuss his career and what gamers can expect from his work on the mysterious Grasshopper EA Partners game.
Unsurprisingly we don’t learn much about Grasshopper’s next game but Akira does drop a few interesting tidbits about what we can expect from his music. The interview itself is interesting and I’m sure fans of his work will enjoy getting a chance to get some insight from the prolific composer.
Also, this week’s episode ends on a high note as the new name of the podcast is revealed. I won’t spoil it for everyone but fans of Grasshopper Manufacture should dig it, especially since Suda 51 himself chose the name from a bevy of user submissions.
