Suda 51's barmy action title Killer is Dead coming to PC

Includes Smooth Operator DLC and new difficulty mode.

Suda 51's barmy action title Killer is Dead will jump to PC this May.

Publisher Deep Silver will release the PC version under the title of Killer is Dead - Nightmare Edition, to be sold physically and digitally for $19.99/£19.99.

New to the PC version will be a new difficulty mode, Nightmare, where enemies can only be defeated with Adrenaline Burst, Dodge Burst, and Headshot attacks. You can also wave goodbye to the Final Judgement finisher.

The PC version will also feature the Smooth Operator DLC pack, which is unlocked after the game's third episode, and a theater mode that allows players to rewatch cutscenes with "extended background information" on the game's cast of characters.

Deep Silver did not mention who was handling the PC port, or whether there would be any visual upgrades and improvements.

But is it worth picking up? GameSpot's Mark Walton slapped a score of 5 on the PlayStation 3 version of the game last year.

"Unless you have a voyeuristic curiosity about Japanese games and culture," he wrote, "[Killer is Dead] simply can't hold its own against its far more entertaining contemporaries. It's too immature, too confusing, and far too unrefined to be anything more than a strange, mildly amusing distraction."

Thank you, I was thinking of emulating this game on my ps3 emulator which is buggy and can't raise the damn resolution and no AA and other shit which annoys. I wish all companies do this and port all the console titles to pc even if it is several years after release on console, cause we PC gamer play games from all time.

It's almost always the crappy selling console games that spurs devs to port to the PC. That is sad beyond belief...

I paid full price for the 360 version and yet I want a Shadows of the Damned Sequel because it deserves on even though it wasn't advertised well. It's a great game.

<< LINK REMOVED >> If only that was happening. I think given how great the first 2 were is too bad Suda may have move on to PS4 with Lily Bergamo.

Awesome ! Wasn't expecting this at all. I have played MGRR on the PC and its one of the best action games of last year and puts a lot of games out there to shame :D Seriously Platinum Games and Suda never disappointed so far :D

Killer is Dead is such a great game, only people who hate it either haven't played it or suck horribly at it. Suda games are very derisive and polarize people into two groups: those who get it and those who don't get into the complicated game mechanics he puts in his games. Glad it's coming to PC... still wish the PC port system didn't take so damn long though.

<< LINK REMOVED >> signed it about 10 days ago and some of my friends did it too. The number of signs are descent but still far away from the target. But SEGA has seen and keeping an eye on this petition. Hope this reaches the target.

Exactly... why Suda51 would start porting their games NOW? I know I could use lollipop chainsaw and Shadows of the Damned on PC.

Barmy? Ahh, yes, as Wikipedia states: containing barm, i.e. froth from fermented yeast. Well, that does it! I just have to play it then.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Who is we? Just you? You neglect that this is good for PC gamers and Developers. 1. you are getting a console exclusive and 2. Developers might make more money that they didn't do on the 360/PS3.
