Details have come out regarding Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture's latest project, entitled Killer is Dead.

Famitsu Magazine in Japan has some info on the game, which Suda 51 himself says contains the essence of previous assassin games like Killer 7 and No More Heroes, but is not directly related.

The main character is an executioner who must track down high-profile killers.

Killer is Dead is expected to hit next year for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Japan.
