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!

Killer Is Dead trailer ... well, there are boobs  photo
Killer Is Dead trailer ... well, there are boobs
by Jim Sterling

Here is a new trailer for Killer Is Dead. If my intuition is correct, the underlying message of the video is that women have breasts. This startling revelation may representing a bold step forward for the field of human biology. I've forwarded these findings to New Scientist magazine.

Killer Is Dead features Gigolo Missions in which you must seduce women. Why? Because Suda51 is involved with this game, is why. 

Trailers with sexy women in them are no less cliche than game boxes featuring generic gruff soldiers with guns. It's just not very original. Lacking originality is quite a feat for a game that's showing us nurses riding giant floating syringes and suited men with giant robot arms running on the Moon. 

Show us more of that stuff, Grasshopper. We can get boobs anywhere. We can only get magic carpet syringes from you.

Report: Liberation Maiden to get sequel on PlayStation 3

Our first detailed look at Suda51's Killer Is Dead
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Killer Is Dead is the next big game from developer Grasshopper Manufacture and the mind of Suda51. The basic idea echoes many past Suda games where you become a highly skilled badass taking on overpowered enemies by means of melee combat.

In this case, you play as Mondo Zappa, an executioner and new employee of the Brian Execution Agency. Unlike the assassins in Suda's other games, Mondo is actually working to protect the world (for the right price of course) as he takes on a new breed of criminals using biomechanical body part replacements to terrorize the planet.

Mondo himself is cybernetically enhanced, and uses a robotic arm in combination with his traditional Japanese katana to hunt down and execute his targets. Yep, sounds pretty Suda alright.
