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.

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!
