Killer is Dead debut trailer now in English

A new version of the first trailer for Killer is Dead, originally released back in January, has appeared on the interwebs which features the game's English voice acting. I think my favorite part of the dialogue is when (what...

Bond, psychos, and gigolos: Suda51 talks Killer is Dead

2013 is the year of Suda51's next production, Killer Is Dead. In January, the game began its PR train with a cool, stylishly seductive trailer that oh teased us so. However, Famitsu was able to get a detailed interview out of him and his partner-in-crime from Kadokawa Games, Yoshimi Yasuda, in which they discuss everything from American Psycho and Bond, to gigolos and tiger-riding yakuza!

PlayStation 4 makes Suda 51 'horny'

Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Suda 51 is apparently more than a little excited for the PS4. In fact, the eccentric game designer claims to be horny for Sony's upcoming console. Let's hope it's not because he's had some thoughts...

Lollipop Chainsaw Valentine Edition revealed

Lollipop Chainsaw Valentine Edition has been announced for Japan, slated to arrive on February 14, 2013. 

The special edition release will include a "perfect unlock code," as well as two DVDs, and computer stuff including desktop clock, wallpaper, and video trailers. It all comes in obligatory fancy packaging.

It'll be coming to Japanese PS3s and 360s for 4,980 yen, so contact your favorite importer if this is something you fancy. Something tells me it won't be crossing the ocean by choice.

Sine Mora coming to PlayStation Network next week

As a shmup enthusiast and Grasshopper Manufacture zealot I was pretty vexed to hear that Sine Mora would be exclusive to the Xbox 360. Not only did that mean that I'd personally miss out on the game, but a large swathe of the...

Review: Liberation Maiden photo
Review: Liberation Maiden
by Tony Ponce

The Japanese-exclusive Guild01 is a "game jam" of sorts that bundles four games created by four notable designers in a single collection, and aside from Level-5's co-operation in their development, they are wholly unrelated to one another. Most importantly, it's not the kind of package you'd expect would receive localization.

Then Level-5 announced that Guild01 would be broken apart and brought out West as individual eShop releases. Only three of the games are making the jump -- the fourth, Omasse's Rental Weapon Shop, curiously didn't make the cut. Nonetheless, I'm pleased that the company is willing to take a chance on these fascinating titles.

First up to the plate is Suda 51's Liberation Maiden, a simple but manic 3D mech shooter with cutscenes provided by the animation studio Bones (Fullmetal Alchemist, Eureka Seven). Short yet sweet, it's quite the exhilarating rush, even if it lacks the signature mind-bending weirdness that Suda games often revel in.
