Flower, Sun, and Rain
, an adventure game released in 2001 for the Playstation 2, is being remade for the DS, according to the latest Famitsu.
It's one of the earlier works of Grasshopper Manufacture, headed by Suda 51, and has a lot in common with later works.
Like Killer 7
and No More Heroes
, the protagonist of Flower, Sun, and Rain
is an assassin. Sumio Mondo lives the same day over and over again until he can stop a bomb from exploding in an airport. To do this, he must also solve the problems of the people he interacts with during that repeating day. As time (fails to) pass, his hotel room starts changing to reflect his mental state.
With The Silver Case
's remake being done with an eye for international release
, can we expect the same of Flower, Sun, and Rain?
(Will The Silver Case
actually be released outside Japan?) Is Suda 51 attempting to remake his complete works for the DS? That would certainly be welcomed by Suda fans and adventure fans. We've posted the magazine scan after the break.
