A blurb on Gameinformer today said the Executioner's name is Mondo Zappa. Yes. I am totally sold. I wonder if he meets up with Garcian Smith at some point in the game? That would be way cool.
New title will send up 007 spy series; to be released in 2013.
Grasshopper Manufacture partnered up with Kadokawa Games last year for Lollipop Chainsaw, an action game slated to be out this June. But the partnership isn't over just yet, as revealed by this week's issue of Famitsu (via Andriasang and Sinobu).
The magazine details a new game titled Killer Is Dead. The action game is about a man known as the Executioner, who is tasked with killing "S"-level criminals around the globe. Goichi "Suda 51" Suda will be directing the game. According to the companies, the game will retain the narrative style of Killer 7 and No More Heroes.
The game also acts as a dark homage to Ian Fleming's 007 series, complete with the title's version of Bond girls. Just like No More Heroes, the action title will have sword combat, albeit with new gameplay mechanics involved.
Killer Is Dead will be out for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2013. For more information on the first game announced by the partnership, check out GameSpot's recent coverage on Lollipop Chainsaw.
Man how did I miss this news back in April!!!!!!! Glad I finally dug my way out of the gaming hole in time to see some interesting new stuff to dive back in with
Oh! I'm already signed up for this! Loved No more Heroes and Killer7 so very excited for this. Just hope it's not totally controlled for Kinnect and Move. Just still not big on motion controls other than Skyward Sword being my only exception.
Yay! More Suda 51 is good. Probably will be the last games of Xbox 360 and PS3 before we go next gen.
Suda 51 games are always interesting. I'll keep my eye open; Killer 7 still sicks out as one of the weirdest/cool games I've ever played.
The headline was very confusing. I thought it was saying suda 51 announced that some game named Killer, which I had never heard of, was cancelled or "dead."
That sounds interesting. Looking forward for more information of this game from Suda 51, crazy and creative.
