Grasshopper Manufacture’s latest action game, Killer is Dead, finally has a release date set in stone in its home country of Japan. Fans of director Suda 51 and his unique taste in action can pick up his game in Japan on August 1st.
The American release date hasn’t be given a specific day yet, but all sources are pointing to Summer 2013. With the Japanese August 1st date in mind, it is very likely the two days will fall close to each other if not on the exact same date.
Killer is Dead stars an elite assassin in the vein of James Bond. He murders by day with a katana and arm cannon and hits the nightlife as a male gigolo looking for love in all the wrong places.
Killer is Dead will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime this summer in America, and it is being localized by XSEED. Expect a release date in the near future.
