Warning: Just a quick heads up before you watch this new trailer. Killer is Dead is set to be an insanely brutal, violent and twisted ride when it launches. The same can be said for this video. Watch it where you won’t offend others.
Killer is Dead is being developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and Goichi “Suda 51” Suda. Those are the same folks responsible for games like Killer7, No More Heroes and Lollipop Chainsaw. If you’ve ever tried any of these titles, then you know they certainly aren’t meant for everyone.
Instead, fans who enjoy absurdities and halfway decent gameplay mechanics layered below unique style, like myself, will probably be able to glean a lot of entertainment from Killer is Dead.
As insane as all the screenshots and trailers have made this game seem, it’s been on my radar ever since its announcement. I’m picking it up based on the teams behind it, and I know I’m in for a wild ride.
Who else is interested? Killer is Dead will hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms on August 27th, 2013.
