Plus, Suda on multiplayer, DLC, and Move support.

Killer is Dead director Goichi Suda recently answered some burning (okay, not exactly) questions at the Taipei Game Show.

Asked about a potential PlayStation Vita port of Killer is Dead, Suda told Inside Games that “it is currently undecided.”

On PlayStation Move support, he said the same. Turning his head to his public relations people, he said, “that is also undecided, right?”

Quizzed on multiplayer support, Suda said to expect an announcement at some point in the future.

Finally, regarding download content, Suda said they currently at the point where they’d appreciate you looking forward to it.

Killer is Dead will launch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this summer.

    If they do a Vita port, I’ll buy it there and on console. Some Grasshopper goodness on the go would be great.

    • Pyrofrost

      Damn right ^_^
      Suda goodness on-the-go would equal AWESOME!

    • Sevyne

      Totally with ya on that one.

      • Pyrofrost

        Yeah, and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to see why portables have become such a huge thing in Japan. I’m really surprised they aren’t bigger here in the West, at least in larger cities.

        • Sevyne

          I still enjoy my consoles, but I’ve definitely become a mostly portable gamer over the recent years. If a portable version of any quality console game is possible, I’ll usually show my interest.

          • Pyrofrost

            Same here, and I still do lots of console gaming. I just find myself doing more portable gaming now than ever before.

        • Skerj

          Probably because people are worried about getting their 2-300 dollar device snatched by some asshole in the streets. Phones are bad enough but at least you’re holding those up to your head when in use. Otherwise they’re small enough to cradle in your hands when doing anything else on them.

          Vita has juuuuust enough space to fit another klepto paw in the middle. That said, I play mine quite often (PSP too still) and fortunately the places I do use them are relatively safe. far.

          • Pyrofrost

            That can happen anywhere though. Crime rate has less influence on sales, it more has to do with the fact that people in the west spend more time at home than they do in Japan.
            I was just bringing up bigger cities, because more time is spent away from home there and use of public transit is higher.

            If crime was a factor, then it would more stop the purchase of home consoles (which is way higher here than Japan). After all, in the US for example, home burglary is far more likely to happen to you than being robbed in the street.

          They’ve always been ahead of the curve with mobile devices. Part of that is infrastructure and part of that is… infrastructure, ahaha.

        • The only thing I don’t like portables is when buttons problems occur… Other than that, I love them…. ^_^

          • Solomon_Kano

            Yea, my PSP’s analog nub fudging up stopped me from ever finishing Birth by Sleep.

            Buttons are the only issue I ever have with my portables. I never break the screen or kill the battery or anything else, just buttons.

        • KurisuMakise

          I think it’s a difference in mentality. When you’re on the road, you’re not quite thinking about the possibility of having fun on the journey. It’s very much a “do this, this, and this!” thing before returning to your sanctuary. Whereas with long commutes in Japan, you’ve just got time to kill, why not let it be enjoyable.

          • Pyrofrost

            Yeah, that’s kinda become my mentality. Every spare moment I have when I’m not doing something, I’ve got my nose buried in a game.
            No point in being the guy who’s doing absolutely nothing, just sitting there talking about how bored he is, right? :p

          • HeatPhoenix

            Well, in a really early morning/after sunset commute like mine usually are, I’m just too tired to do something like that on the train.

  • God damn it. If he had said outright “no”, then this hope would’ve have reared up in my chest. Please don’t crush it Grasshopper.

  • Skerj

    Just the fact that it is “undecided” and not “no” fills my body with dreams and power.

  • Suda sounds so clueless LOL I think it will be fantastic on the Vita. More and more people are realizing that smart phones are never going to give us these types of games …well at least this gen anyways and the Vita sales would skyrocket if devs forget about smart phones for some time and put games on the Vita and 3DS.

    Its like they are depending on an un finished cake …the phone thing will come but right now its just a bit to early for these type of caliber games.

    I say do it! even if its download only.

  • Prodigy-X

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this game.

  • I hold my breathe for this one… Don’t get me wrong, I like to see it happen but I just don’t see it happening…. Maybe somewhere down the road after the console versions released?

  • its no good…
    why should they doubt the vita , this looks great on OLED screen

  • PrinceHeir

    getting both either way :P

  • Asking Suda about DLC is like asking yourself if you can suck your own dick. Not going to happen.

  • Elvick

    That would actually be a great thing for me. At current I have little interest in the game, but if it were on Vita (where I spend most of my time these days, sans Ni no Kuni) then I’d definitely be more interested.

  • shogunknight

    Beautiful game. Im glad but im not very happy that the vita gets quite a few more ports than original titles or sequels/prequels. Its still better than having none though.

  • Neutron15

    my only answer to this topic is: YES!!!!!!!!, and now I expect many dislikes

  • YangTerlupakan

    Vita need original game not just port

    • Elvick

      Good thing it gets both then.

    • Sevyne

      Somebody needs to port a functioning brain into your head because your original seems defective.
