Tokyo, Japan– February 28th, 2011 - Grasshopper Manufacture Inc. celebrates 13 years keeping the spirit of Punk alive in games with our second UStream event, Grasstream 2: Travis vs. Garcia at Shinjuku Loft Plus One! Travis, star of Grasshopper’s No More Heroes series, will come face-to-face with the hero of our latest game, Shadow of the Damned’s Garcia Hotspur. Will Garcia prove worthy of Travis’ legacy?

But this clash of legendary heroes is just the tip of the iceberg! Grasshopper’s taking Grasstream to a new level this year with more interviews, more live music, more guests, and best of all, a new game announcement!

Grasshopper Manufacture is also honored to have the cast of one of gaming’s most popular podcasts, 8-4 Play, joining us to provide English commentary for all of our international fans.
