Liberation Maiden Sin looks gorgeous in latest trailer

Liberation Maiden Sin is unfairly pretty. The follow-up to Grasshopper Manufacture's Nintendo 3DS shoot-'em-up is descending on Japan come December 5. Unfortunately, it's a visual novel, which all but ensures the PlayStation 3 exclusive won't see a release on Western shores.

Do want: PS4 title Lily Bergamo is the newest from Suda51

Killer is Disappointed: Gigolo missions & token weirdism
by Steven Hansen

I really like Killer is Dead. I want to like it more, but I’m increasingly unsure if I should. Unfortunately, the awful Gigolo missions are a big part of planting the seed of distrust in my mind.

Hah! I bet you thought you’d avoided a tirade on why Killer is Dead’s Gigolo missions are the worst thing since Reaganomics when Chris Carter only mentioned them in passing in his review. Allow me to Killer is Shed some light on the problem.

Killer is Dead launches to tepid sales in Japan

Mainstream success has largely eluded Grasshopper Manufacture. Despite giving birth to beloved properties like No More Heroes, the studio has had trouble garnering much of an audience outside of a devout cult following all to...

Okay Killer Is Dead, enough is enough

Hey Suda 51, you're great. I love your games. Killer Is Dead looks like it will be a lot of fun. But enough is enough! There's promotion, and then there's just spoiling every single little aspect of your game. We've seen so ...

Killer Is Dead features both Japanese and English voices

Yes! Killer Is Dead will feature both Japanese and English voiceover options. This is something I was hoping for forever, as I much prefer the Japanese voice actors over the English ones. As for the English voice cast, you c...

Killer Is Dead trailer shows fight with King Quasi-Naked

Here's a new trailer for Killer Is Dead. It's got some really good music, a load of talking in Japanese, and a boss battle showcase against a man who wears very little clothing and appears to wear a crown. Henceforth, I dub him King Quasi-Naked. For those who don't want to spoil the weirdness, I must urge once more that this video may give away too much for you. View with caution!

Low sales? Suda51 points to publisher barriers

While sales of Suda51's games aren't always where publishers would like them to be, if there's one thing to be said, it's that those who do play the designer's titles sure are passionate about them. Speaking to GamesIndustry ...
