Japanese gaming site Famitsu have recently posted new details as well a trailer of GrasshopperManufactures new game; Killer is Dead.
The latest offering from the game worlds Tarrentino -Suda51 is described by the excentric designer as a cross between his previous games ‘No More Heroes’ and ‘Killer 7′.
In ‘Killer is Dead’ players take on the role of Mondo Zappa a sharp suited, american ‘executioner’ tasked with taking out dangerous criminals. Armed with a Katana and an augmented left arm that can transform into a gun and a drill which will get incresingly powerful as the game progresses.
Joining Mondo is his boss, the british born, cat suit wearing Vivienne Squall and mondos young assistant Mika Takekawa.
The game’s Main protagonist is Victor, who looks a lot like Yoshimitsu from Tekken dressed up as Motzart, who uses song to manipulate humans into doing evil. bwahaha.
As well an international cast of characters the game also takes players to various different locals incuding what looks like the wild west and a traditional Japanese house.
Check out the game’s debut trailer below. I have to say it looks ace.
Killer is Dead is due for release for Xbox 360 and PS3 in the Summer in Japan. There has been no word on a western relase yet.
