The gorgeous and violent Japanese anime-inspired action thriller is coming to the U.S. courtesy of XSEED Games.
Publisher XSEED Games is releasing the upcoming action thriller, Killer Is Dead. Developed jointly by Kadokawa Games and esteemed game creator, Goichi Suda (aka SUDA51), and his Grasshopper Manufacturer studio, Killer Is Dead will be available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
“XSEED has a lineup of great titles for 2013, including the exciting partnership for Killer Is Dead, the newest creation from Kadokawa Games and SUDA51, which I personally selected to bring to the US market,” said Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of XSEED Games. “In the coming year, we will release an array of solid action and role-playing games that are sure to delight fans through a combination of high quality gameplay and well-crafted localization.”
Created by game legend SUDA51, this highly anticipated original game is set in a not-so-distant future similar to (but not the same as) the world we know now. The player takes control of an executioner named Mondo Zappa who wields a Japanese sword in his right hand and brandishes interchangeable weapons in his left artificial arm. His ultimate goal is to execute various heinous criminals scattered around the world and beyond.
