In 2014, Goichi Suda, director of Killer7, No More Heroes, and Shadows of the Damned, announced a PlayStation 4-exclusive brawler called Let it Die. Although little has been seen of the game since, which is being developed by his studio, Grasshopper Manufacture, a new video update on the project has revealed it is on track for a 2016 launch.

"Let it Die remains a crazy survival action game," explained executive producer Kazuki Morishita. "The world we are creating will push the envelope for asynchronous, free-to-play. The trademark Grasshopper visual and narrative flair remains a signature for the title."

Suda went on to reveal that Let it Die will be available to play at PAX East in Boston. The event is scheduled to take place between April 22 and April 24.

As previously detailed, enemies in Let it Die will use other players’ data, which accounts for the asynchronous online part of it. Players will be able to take a defeated enemy's weapons and clothes to customize their own character.

Let it Die is the first Suda and Grasshopper Manufacture game since the studio was acquired by Puzzle & Dragons publisher GungHo Online Entertainment. It is also the first PS4 game for both companies. The game was originally revealed as Lily Bergamo, but has changed its title since.

Take a look at a few new screenshots from the game below.
