The lights are on
Love him or hate him, it's hard to deny that Suda 51 has style. Coming off his zombie-fighting cheerleader adventure, Lollipop Chainsaw, the mad mastermind's Grasshopper Manufacture has revealed a bit more about Killer is Dead. This latest meander through Suda 51's mind puts players in the role of Mondo, a government-employed killer.
The trailer below (set to Wagner's "Flight of the Valkyries") only casually hints at the game's plot, in which the Earth is stolen. Mondo and his employer, Bryan, feature prominently along with a glimpse of the protagonist's powers. We've come to expect tons of blood and over-the-top action from Grasshopper Manufacture, and it appears that Killer is Dead will not disappoint. Despite the sparseness of plot information, the 90 seconds featured do give a sense of the stylized aesthetic (not entirely different from No More Heroes) and the type of combat on offer.
XSEED Games will deliver Killer is Dead this summer.

That music was painfully bad. . .
This is definitely Suda 51.
Looks awesome, I'm gettin' this game!
hell yes! But what was up with what looked like a mini game with some girl slapping the dude? Still it looks amazing, pure insanity!
That style of art is stimulating and distracting at the same time. I want to play this game. it has peaked my curiosity and I love the fact it is very different.
