Killer 7 update

Capcom releases new details on Killer 7 for the GameCube. New screens inside.


Additional details on Capcom's Killer 7 for the GameCube have been revealed in the latest release of Famitsu magazine. Killer 7 will contain five storylines that span through four different worlds in two time periods, the present day and the year 2005. The world of 2005 will change depending on what the main character does in the present-day period.

The main character in Killer 7 is a 65-year-old man named Harman Smith. While Harman can barely walk on his own feet, he is feared as the most dangerous killer in the world. Harman has seven personalities obtained over the course of many years working for the government. Each personality has a unique name, look, and specialty, as listed below:

Garcian Smith - A man killed by Herman. Garcian has clairvoyant powers and is trusted by Herman to manage the rest of his personalities.

Dan Smith - A man with telekinetic powers that let him change a bullet's trajectory with a thought. He killed Herman four years ago.

Masked Smith - A retired wrestler who can use fire to become invincible.

Coyote Smith - Masked Smith's son. He has the power to teleport through objects.

Con Smith - A child with superior natural senses. Herman uses him to deliver false feelings of compassion.

Kaede Smith - A woman with the ability to make showers of deadly blood appear and who loves Coyote and Dan.

Kevin Smith - A new and mysterious Smith who has been given special orders by Herman.

Harman's objective in the game is to pursue Kun Lan, an old friend and neighbor who also happens to be the game's villain. Kun Lan is the criminal mastermind of an organization that can turn people into vicious monsters. Some refer to Kun Lan as God Hands.

Killer 7 is scheduled for release later this year and is currently 30 percent complete.
