Grasshopper Manufacture and Kadokawa Games have teamed up together for the new title ‘Killer is Dead’, which Suda 21 will be directing.
In this title, you play as a prisoner who’s been given the death sentence and your objective is to kill your assassin. The game promises to retain the essense of Killer 7 and No More Heroes, but it’s not a sequel to Killer 7. It’s kind of like a dark 007 game with a number of Bond girls. Early reports indicate that the gameplay will involve sword play, with new elements. Killer is Dead will be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013.
