I'm doing another art contest! Perhaps a few of you might recall the Persona related one I held over at my site two years agon. Which was such a success that I'm doing another one. This time, the subject matter involves the various ladies that have appeared in assorted Grasshopper Manufacture titles (No More Heroes, Killer 7, & Flower Sun Rain to name a few).
Why just the ladies? Well, the grand prize winner's piece will appear in my upcoming forth installment of the FORT90ZINE, as that issue's pin-up! Past installments have included Claire Redfield, Mona from WarioWare, and Samus Aran. Which means there are a few additional things to note, as it pertains to size and dimensions and the such, cuz it's a centerfold and all. Though before getting into all that, how about we check out the prize package that also comes with the winning entry? The pot includes...
Two sets of postcards, pre-order bonus items for No More Heroes for the Xbox 360 and PS3, which were only made available in Japan:
A guidebook for those same game(s), which also includes tons of awesome "making of" material:
A special mini comic featuring sexy stories (the PG-13 variety, nothing rated R) that was a pre-order bonus for No More Heroes 2, and again, was only available in Japan:
A (surprise, Japanese only) Killer 7 art book that includes autographs from many of the game's staff members, including the dude who runs the Grasshopper Manufacture Empire himself, Suda 51 (!!!):
And four, count 'em, FOUR extremely limited edition shirts, all having to do with various Grasshopper titles (of course):
BTW, I suppose it's worth mentioning how Grasshopper Manufacture is officially sponsoring the contest as well! Hence why some of you, fans of the company at least, might have heard about this already via their Facebook page a few days ago. Along with Jap-Sai, bar none the only place you need to go for classic Japanese games and hardware on the net! Once more, there are additional details, as well as additional pics of the prize package, over at my blog:
I'm fairly confident that at least a few folks around here are fans of No More Heroes and the like, plus it would simply be an honor to have some members of the Life Meter family take part! If anyone has any question, please pass them along. Thanks!
