XSEED has released more screenshots for their upcoming summer Xbox 360 and PS3 game Killer is Dead. Directed by SUDA51 (No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw, Killer7), Killer is Dead puts you in the shoes of an assassin, Mondo Zappa, who wields both a sword and a bionic left arm that can turn into multiple weapons, such as a gun or drill.
Recently, they also announced the presence of a “gigolo mode”, “in which Mondo travels to various parts of the world to meet exotic women” . Apparently, Mondo will also have two different kinds of “gigolo glasses” , one of which lets you see through clothes. I’m going to assume that these glasses have no relevance to anything and exist purely for sex appeal, which is mildly irritating, but I hope it doesn’t harm the overall appeal of the game for most people.
In case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the first trailer (in Japanese). There is also a second trailer out, and both are available with English voice acting. All of the trailers are on YouTube.
From the trailer you can see Killer is Dead’s unique art style. It’s probably the thing that makes me look forward to this game the most, which doesn’t happen that often with me. It just looks so awesome though. Here are some screenshots:
