Includes Episode 51, Gigolo Mission, costumes and glasses.

XSEED Games has released new screenshots of Killer is Dead‘s ‘Smooth Operator’ downloadable add-on pack.

‘Smooth Operator’ will include bonus in-game ‘Gigolo Glasses,’ alternate costumes for Vivienne and Mika (pictured), a bonus ‘Gigolo Mission’ with the lovely Betty, and an ‘Episode 51,’ an entire addition episode centered around the vampire Sebastian.

All launch copies of Killer is Dead will be packaged with the ‘Smooth Operator’ add-on, as well as an 80-page hardcover art book and 25-song soundtrack CD. The game is due out in North America on August 27 and Europe on August 30.

    It should also be noted that two additional sub missions unlock upon the completion of Episode 51. Also, for those of you wanting to play in chronological order, Episode 51 is actually Episode 7. This isn’t THAT big of a deal, but Vivienne makes a comment about something from Episode 51 during Episode 7, so some may want to go ahead and play that first before Episode 7 so her statement makes sense.

    EDIT: Sal, might want to just add that two sub missions are given with it as well. If you need the titles for them, they are:

    The Connoisseur and Vampire Chillers

      For those that don’t really care about spoilers and want to see if the missions are worth it, I’ll link them below. Episode 51 has the English audio while the sub missions contain Japanese audio (this was just based on how I recorded them, you can play the missions with either audio). Episode 51 by itself will take you 30+ minutes or so to complete (maybe a little shorter than that if you play on Easy).

      Just skip these videos if you’re worried about spoilers. I just know some that are curious as to what is actually in the DLC content, that’s all. (Episode 51) (DLC sub mission Vampire Chillers) (The Connoisseur)

        The spoiler warning is appreciated ^^

    DLC already? I hate this generation of games. Atleast it is nothing huge missing.

      “All launch copies of Killer is Dead will be packaged with the ‘Smooth Operator’ add-on,…”

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Yep. It’s all on-disc DLC.

    • Pyrofrost

      I don’t see where the problem or the secret is. This has been announced as a ‘pre-order/day-one’ bonus for quite some time.

      It’s just a ploy to give ‘pre-order’ incentive. People ‘really’ want the game will be getting the DLC for free anyway.

      People who will be waiting for the game to be under $20, won’t be getting it free. Too bad, so sad.

      What’s wrong?

  • PrinceHeir

    awesome :D

    i actually saw Mika carrying a pop corn in her cop suit :P

    i’m guessing that’s the mission about XD

    can’t wait for this!!!!!!!

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Nah, that’s from Episode 9, lol.

    That art style… So good !

    Mika acts too juvenile and Anime cliche for my tastes. She sounds borderline retarded pretending too hard to be a 4 year old. Her looks almost make up for it.


    I know I will get downvoted a lot for this because it will upset some Otakus that consider her their waifu, but fear not, I will treat said downvotes as negative energy and collect and consume it all to create a negative energy black hole ki bomb to throw back at you all muahahahahaha
