Killer is Dead Has a Romantic Side

By Lexley Ford, 3 years ago
Kadokawa Games and Grasshopper Manufacture have released fresh details on their upcoming action game, Killer is Dead, relating to the title's rather different Gigolo Mode, a selection of side mission in which the protagonist, Mondo Zappa, travels to various parts of the world in order to meet and seduce exotic women.

Naturally, Mondo's katana isn't the correct tool for these kinds of tasks, luckily, he has something else he can use, the Gigolo Glasses. By using these glasses, everything about the woman you are looking at is revealed to the player, though not only facts like her age and nationality, they also secretly reveal her true feelings and deepest desires, giving our hero the edge he needs to complete his mission.

These missions aren't just a distraction and do have meaning to the rest of the game, as by improving his gigolo skills, Mondo will receive extra equipment and enhanced abilities to aid him in his goal of becoming the world's strongest executioner.

Released alongside these details was a new set of screenshots showing off a few of Mondo’s combat skills, such as the sword slash, dodge, guard and guard break.
