Two of Grasshopper Manufacture's recent high-profile hires have left the company as of last month, Siliconera reports. Former Marvelous president Yasuhiro Wada and Little King's Story creator Yoshiro Kimura both left Marvelous and joined Grasshopper in 2010. Both had previously worked with Suda 51 as producers on No More Heroes.

We're unsure what the two were working on at Grasshopper, but the company currently has plenty in progress. It's making Evangelion Sound Impact, Lollipop Chainsaw, Codename D, and, with Digital Reality, Sine Mora and Black Knight Sword.
