This week’s Famitsu has the scoop on a new Grasshopper Manufacture production. To be published by Kadokawa Games for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013, Killer is Dead is a new action game directed by Goichi Suda (Suda 51).
The game follows the story of an executioner assassin (he kills killers). Its keywords are “moon” and “earth.” Though not a sequel to Killer 7, the game will have the essence of Killer 7 and No More Heroes. Sword fighting is said to be similar to the latter, but with new elements.
The game will also have beautiful James Bond-esque ladies. It’s described as a “Dark Side 007.”
