Killer is Dead Global Publishing Partners Revealed

By Keith Gray, 3 years ago
Nine months has passed since Kadokawa Games and Grasshopper Manufacture announced that they would be teaming up again to create Killer is Dead.

Kadokawa Games had originally stated that it intended to be the principle distributors of the title. However, it has been revealed today that the publishing responsibilities are to be outsourced to other capable firms in specific regions. Deep Silver will handle the game's distribution across Europe and Oceania, whilst XSEED Games will deal with similar formalities in North America.

Suda51, the Executive Producer for Killer is Dead's production and the creative mind behind Lollipop Chainsaw appears to be continuing in a similar vein of colourful and crazed sensory madness with his latest creation. The newest screenshots, along with the previous coverage, are pretty clear evidence of his trademark approach.





In addition to confirming specific publishers, Kadokawa Games has now also narrowed down the expected release window for Killer is Dead to "Summer 2013".
