Anyone familiar with Japanese game auteur Goichi Suda, better known as ‘Suda 51,’ knows to expect nothing less than complete absurdity from him and his studio, Grasshopper Manufacture. His latest project, Killer Is Dead, is a title due out this summer. Here’s the latest trailer, seen below in its English version.
Featuring katanas, cyborg arms, undead villains, slickly stylized visuals and copious bloodshed, the game certainly has it all, even if it looks to be targeting a very specific audience with acquired tastes. The game will put you in the role of cybernetic assassin Mondo Zappa, tasked with eliminating dangerous criminals for the Brian Execution Firm in a near-future setting. The moon will be a major plot point, and the story aims to be a deeply personal tale amid the ridiculousness.
Let us know if you’re excited for Killer Is Dead, which releases on PS3 and Xbox 360. Why not discuss the game on our new forums?
