New Killer Is Dead Screens

By Cindy Minguez, 5 years ago
In Killer is Dead, Mondo Zappa searches out and destroys criminals of the highest order. If you've kept up with previous stories about this title, you're no doubt aware that this is one bloody baby. XSEED's newest offering looks like the crazy lovechild of Sin City and Kill Bill in anime form.


The latest from the demented mind of celebrated game creator, SUDA51, serving as a spiritual successor to previous cult favorites No More Heroes and Killer 7. Stylish cel-shaded visuals set the mood in this gritty, bloody, ultra-violent world where biomechanical augmentations increase the power of criminals and “executioners” alike. Mondo Zappa, a newly recruited executioner, hunts criminals wielding a Japanese sword in his right hand, and powerful biomechanical engineering in his left.



The gameplay gets interesting as Mondo hunts down his target, whether that be a homicidal madman or lovely lady. He can take down his prey with his katana or with his gigolo glasses, a special piece of equipment for use in Gigolo Mode. Gigolo Mode is a set of sidequests in which Mondo tracks down and seduces women all over the world in order to gain new equipment.






For those with the stomach for it, Killer is Dead is expected to make its blood-dripping appearance in August, 2013.
