Suda 51’s Killer is Dead Out In Japan This Summer, No North American Release Date Set

Grasshopper Manufacture’s Killer is Dead is coming out this summer in Japan for the Xbox 360 and PS3, but is still isn’t set to be translated in English.  Although the art style and name is extremely similar to Killer 7, Killer is Dead is not a sequel.

Almost looks like a cross over of Killer 7’s graphics with No More Heroes’ sword gameplay.

Suda 51 continues to create some great protagonist names with Mondo Zappa, the star of Killer is Dead.  Several screenshots show that this game is continuing the trend of the developer’s prior work by incorporating highly stylized, unflinchingly violent action.  Although there has been no news on whether this game will be translated to English, I’m remaining hopeful.  Suda 51 always manages to craft games with such visual flair and panache, and I hope his latest title hits North American shores sooner rather than later.
