Killer is Dead

Killer Is Dead Gets Its First English-Language Trailer

Publisher XSEED has staked out some Facebook space for the upcoming Suda 51 title Killer is Dead, and it's marking the occasion with the game's first English-language trailer.

The game, which was first revealed in January, fits into Suda 51's assassin series, joining the ranks of games such as Killer 7 and No More Heroes. This one focuses on a guy named Mondo Zappa, an assassin who has an arm with interchangeable gadgets. As you can see in the clip below, he also has a sword, and he's not afraid of using it in some gnarly-looking kills.

Look for the game sometime this summer on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

  • Nicee!

  • I never got the chance of playing these, but I like the animation. Would you guys consider worth it to go back and give them a try?
  • I guess you could say this music is...killer

  • I love the colorful animations every color just pops this could be their best game yet.

  • This is semi-off-topic, but while we are talking about Suda51, I'd like to say that they would be well-suited for the development of a Dark Tower game...

  • Decent sounding dub, awesome graphics, fun looking gameplay, and a Cyborg lookalike? I may just have to check this out.

  • Not that it reflects much on the quality of the game, but what a miserable trailer! Japanese studios rarely know how to market their games to Americans.
  • Looks, and sounds, great! The voicework isn't your typical, annoying, cloying, cheap anime garbage. This is more in line with, like, Cowboy Bebop or Ergo Proxy. Frickin' great job, XSeed! As for the game itself, No More Heroes 1 and especially 2 were amazing. This is a day one purchase for me then, based on that pedigree. Never played Killer 7, and I'm actually kinda PO'ed Suda 51 hasn't "Xbox Live'd" that yet. I mean, it seems like it would actually make for a PERFECT Kinect game thanks to it's restrictive (on controllers) controls and gameplay. But for the limited stuff Kinect could do? Would fit like a glove, I'm sure.
  • Whoa, didn't realie how lose this was. Can not wait!

  • I recognize the music from Asura's Wrath, when he was fighting the giant i believe

  • Amazing trailer. I enjoyed all the animations, the art style, and just everything is general. I'm a huge fan of Suda 51 so there is no surprise here that I am excited for this game.

  • Voice overs done via integrated webcam mic? Sounds like bootay!

    Looks sweet tho

  • I'm looking to slicing people up this summer!

  • So looking forward to this game.  Killer7 was one of my favorite Gamecube games, and I enjoyed the No More Heroes games.

  • Totally awesome! I loved killer7!

    Now which system should I get it for....

  • I know I'm watching a Suda 51 game when I'm totally confused but want it immediately.

  • I really like the art style to this. Also enjoyed No More Heroes, so I will be looking forward to seeing more of this game.

  • Looks great, but I hope I can use Japanese voice overs. This and Last of Us are my most anticipated games of the year so far.
  • This looks awesome, I really hope it plays as good as it looks when it releases.  No More Heroes 2 and Shadows of the Damned were both really good games, so this could continue Suda 51's recent hot streak.

  • definitely playing this. Never played killer 7 or NO More heroes though :/
