Killer is Dead Concept Art Revealed

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
A week ago we revealed a brand new title from Kadokawa Games and Grasshopper Manufacture, https://www.trueachievements.com/Killer-is-Dead-xbox-360.htm. In a story of "life, love, and death", players take on the role of a professional Executioner who is tasked with killing S-level criminals across the globe.

Although the game is set in modern times, they won't be conventional modern times. This world involves defensive walls armed with turret guns, genetic enhancements, towers that are tall enough to break out of the atmosphere, men who are taller than buildings, and what appears to be icicles that suddenly sprout out of the ground, impaling everything that happens to get in the way.

The Executioner attempts to blend into the crowd. The only issue is that his briefcase appears to look like a giant sword. He will be fighting to protect somebody he loves and I'm willing to bet that the girl featured in one of the next pieces of concept art will play a prominent role.
