Killer 7-esque game to be released 2013

Grasshopper, developer of Suda51-directed surrealist oddities Killer 7 and No More Heroes, has announced a new game by the name of ‘Killer is Dead’.

Set to follow the studio’s rainbow-cheerleader-zombie hack and slash Lollipop Chainsaw, ‘Killer is Dead’ will be released for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013.

With industry legend Goichi “Suda51” Suda as lead director, ‘Killer is Dead’ returns to a story akin to Killer 7, while not being a direct sequel. Taking control of a prisoner who has been sentenced to die, you goal is to kill your assassin. The game will feature No More Heroes style swordplay with new additions.


No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise was released for PS3 and 360 last year.

While there probably won’t be any scantily clad cheerleaders in ‘Killer is Dead’, it has been reported the game will feel like a twisted James Bond movie, with numerous Bond-girl like babes.

With an already strong list of upcoming games including Lollipop Chainsaw, Diabolical Pitch for Kinect and side-scroller Black Knight Sword on XBLA, Grasshopper’s release schedule is looking busy. In addition to this Suda51 has already expressed a desire to make No More Heroes 3 for the Wii U.

We’re excited to see what wierdness Suda51 can produce with the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 as the lead platform, but we’re sure fluid simulation will be put to good use through copious amount of blood.
