      It’s coming out worldwide. No need.

      • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

        Really?! Missed the international announcement, sorry.

        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          They said it when the game was first announced back in April last year. =) But they didn’t say a publisher. Me wonders if it’s Warner Bros. again, or someone new? I don’t remember hearing that Lollipop Chainsaw did so well at retail.

            I have no idea, usually Suda51 games bounce around to different publishers like Ubisoft, Electronic Arts and WB Games.

          • Revorse

            It ships at least 700,000. Not sure how many copies were actually purchased though.

            Thanks, safe to wait then. Suda’s games usually have good English VAs so I’m cool with it.

    Looks cool as fuck.

  • DarthBrian

    Yup.
    Looks like a Suda game to me. ^_^

  • DesmaX

    Yeah, it’s a Suda 51 game.

    Wished we’d get No More Heroes 2 on the PS3 too…

  • Bloodios

    In Suda51, I trust!

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Art style alone jumped this up to being one of my most anticipated games this year. Go Suda!

    • paperclichepixel

      Amen!!!

    • Rezar

      Reminds me of a combination of Lollipop Chainsaw and No More Heroes which is a good thing.

  • almostautumn

    Looks excellent like all his games— although I really hope this one actually excels in the gameplay department for once (well, since NMH).

  • Prodigy-X

    I want this badly.

  • DragonSix

    It looks exactly like the very first reveal trailer for Killer7, before it was severly dialed back to another style. I’m happy, I loved the look of that trailer.

  • Budgiecat

    Nice art style. Defe a cool change of pace for the PS3 in a gen full of generic realistic dull art styles…

  • Raiyu

    I’m hyped!

  • Eclipse

    As expected of Suda51… this looks incredibly sleek & stylish!

    Looks like this will be a definite import for me.

    And people say this generation of games are the worst. C’mon.
    Suda51 never dissapoint. Day 1 for sure!

  • Aldridge517

    At the very least it’s visually pleasing.

    Don’t like the way it looks, in my honest opinion i don’t like games like this if they release a demo i’ll try it maybe i’ll like it

  • PrinceHeir

    the screens are amazing O_____O

    finally a badass Dan Smith like with a katana and blaster gun :)

    fucking awesome!!!!!
