Killer is Dead details emerge, typical Suda 51 madness ensues
Suda 51 is known in the games industry for his twisted and original games. The Japanese mastermind has been behind titles such as Killer 7, No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned and it seems that his latest game, Killer is Dead, will be just as bonkers as his other creations.
The latest edition of Famitsu reveals that Killer is Dead stars Mondo Zappa, a 35-year-old man who works as an executioner for a renowned institute. Zappa is not your standard hitman though, as he sports a gun-arm that can be used as a drill and can absorb enemy blood for a special “adrenaline burst”.
Zappa is aided by his feisty female companion Vivienne Squall, a young British girl with a thing for cat-suits.
The main villain of the game is Victor, a green faced composer that can alter emotions through the power of song.
Commenting on the game Suda 51 said:
It’s the story of a man who doesn’t show himself much in the public world, but still worms his way into society and mercilessly eliminates the evil dispersed in it. It’s a personal story, not one that’s conscious of the chaos going on in the real world at the moment, but you might get more than a taste of that in the end anyway.
Killer is Dead is due for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 this summer.
