Killer Is Dead trailer shows fight with King Quasi-Naked


More mental stuff
Jun 24
Here's a new trailer for Killer Is Dead.

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! read
