Last week, we learned that Grasshopper Manufacture was working on a new game called Killer is Dead. The title, while not a direct sequel, is said to be related to Suda51's cult favorite Killer 7. Now some concept art from the game has emerged, providing a glimpse of what kind of tone the studio is shooting for.

The images show off environments including a busy street and cocktail bar, and plenty of references to bladed weapons. Judging from past Suda51 productions, that last bit shouldn't come as any surprise.

Killer is Dead is due out in Japan in 2013 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
