Suda51's next game Killer is Dead sure looks the part

Your day has come, Suda51 fans

While I think the image above (via Famitsu) does an excellent job of communicating what the new project from Grasshopper Manufacture and Kadokawa Games is all about, we thankfully have a bit more to go on than that for Killer is Dead. As translated by Polygon, this week's issue of Famitsu has quoted Goichi "Suda51" Suda as saying "Development has already been ongoing for an extended period of time" and that the title will be released in Japan this summer.

"It's the first game in the 'assassin' series that Grasshopper Manufacture has worked on in a while, a title that picks up where Killer7 and No More Heroes left off," he stated. Killer is Dead stars Mondo Zappa, a well-dressed man who is sent to execute assassins across the globe. He's got an arm that can turn into a drill or a gun, and presumably plenty of things in-between. No big deal.

"It's not trying to regress into the past," Suda said. "We're trying to make a game that we'd only be able to make right now, at this point in time. The result is seen in our unique high-contrast shading seen in the graphics, as well as the high speed wrestling-like action." This sounds right in line with what one would expect the studio to be working on, doesn't it? Be sure to follow the link below to Famitsu for more screenshots.
