Product Details:

Killer Is Dead is the latest title from the demented mind of celebrated game creator, SUDA51, serving as a spiritual successor to his previous cult favorites, No More Heroes and Killer 7. Stylish cell-shaded visuals set the mood in this gritty, bloody, ultra-violent world where biomechanical augmentations increase the power of criminals and "executioners" alike. Mondo Zappa, a newly recruited executioner, hunts criminals wielding a Japanese sword in his right hand, and the crushing power of biomechanical engineering in his left.

Latest Creation from Fan-favorite Game Creator SUDA51

The twisted mind behind controversial but adored titles such as Lollipop Chainsaw, Killer 7 and No More Heroes is back with a bizarre tale of an executioner tracking down high-level terrorists in a cyberpunk world.

Eye-catching Art Direction

Visuals are presented in a fashion reminiscent of a moving comic book, bringing the stylish and ultra-violent world to life.

Unique and Varied Action Combat

Swordplay is Mondo's preferred style, but his left bionic arm can be used for powerful punches to attack enemies or break through barriers, and it can also transform into a gun when ranged combat is necessary.

Extra Missions Give Way to More Cash, More Items, and More Girls

Dozens of extra missions outside of the main story give players access to unlockable outfits, money to upgrade weapons, materials to aid in a pinch, and "Gigolo Mode" to seduce the various beautiful women Mondo meets throughout the story.

Introduction

KILLER IS DEAD is a brand new action title jointly developed by KADOKAWA GAMES and GRASSHOPPER MANUFACTURE, with SUDA51 lending his trademark sense of style at the helm.

A reputable execution agency's newest recruit, Mondo Zappa, takes center stage as he stalks and beheads a wide variety of heinous criminals all across the world (and even, perhaps, outside of it). As he settles into his new job, he also comes to terms with his own inner demons, balancing his talent for dispensing swift and brutal justice with his fleeting memories of a traumatic past, and peppering it all with his many sensual conquests.

Be he a killer, a lover or a gigolo, his many tales of passion and brutality begin with his appointment at Bryan´s Executioner Office. A whole world of pain and pleasure awaits, and there's no telling where it might take him next...

Character

CV: Ryotaro Okiayu

Age: 35

Origin: U.S.A.

Mondo´s job is to execute criminals, and no hit is too big for him. He wields a Japanese sword in his right hand and has a blood-powered artificial device where his left arm used to be, configured to accept all manner of interchangeable attachments. Although extraordinarily useful in his line of work, Mondo has no memory as to how he acquired this particular "feature."

When he´s not working, Mondo is quite the sweet-talker, seducing a wide variety of beautiful women with ease.

His favorite food is soft-boiled egg.

CV: Yuhko Kaida

Age: 25

Origin: U.K.

Vivienne is a calm, cool and collected executioner who always takes a firm but fair tone with clients and is generally well-liked by everyone. Should the topic of her private life come up, however, her mood may sour very quickly.

Whenever Mondo is in trouble, Vivienne swings by on her motorcycle to help him out, unleashing her move using16 pistols collectively known as the "Vivienne Phantom."

CV: Aki Toyosaki

Age: 20

Origin: Japan

Mika met Mondo in passing, and found herself living with him as his assistant due to her extensive culinary skills (meaning, she´s good at preparing soft-boiled eggs just the way Mondo likes them).

Her eccentric words and "fangirlish"" behavior often lighten the mood during otherwise intense assignments.

CV: Unsho Ishizuka

Age: 65

Origin: U.S.A.

A retired executioner with an impeccable record, Bryan now runs the show - though he doesn´t pay much heed to company management, as he has a lot of confidence in his subordinates and really only still involves himself in the business as a matter of pride.

He was one of the best executioners in the world at one time, and his partially mechanized body serves as a reminder of his prestigious career.

Occasionally supports Mondo by combining himself with a gun turret to form the deadliest weapon of all: the widely-feared "Bryan Turret."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suda 51 at his best. Suda 51 is a well known game developer but his games are not mainstream which is a shame because he is one of the most innovate creators in gaming. All his titles are hit and miss with people but not with his fans, which brings me to my point if you are a suda fan you will love killer is dead. First of the game has a great opening sequence that just awes you with its graphical beauty to its complex story setup. The graphics are the first thing you notice and I thought It was going to be annoying in gameplay but it turns out to just be fantastic. The gameplay is button massing at first but you will eventually learn how to counter, dodge, and bring in devastating combos to the enemies. The sound effects are fantastic the music is bearable, but the voice acting....meh. Its good for mondo and a few other characters but the most annoying one is his sidekick she has the worst voice in any video game. But thats just about the only flaw, some people find no story but there is a good one its just complex, the gameplay is fun from start and gets better as you go, the sound/voice acting is hit and miss, the graphics are unique and beautiful, and the replayabiltity is good. This deserves a 9/10 refreshing, fun, crazy, brutal, beautiful, game and one heck of a ride. KILLER IS DEAD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Such interesting artwork, the story don't matter. Not sure exactly whats going on, but its fun getting there, Ive put in a couple hours of real slow progress, looking searching trying stuff etc. Definitely great eye candy with or without the story.Like i said i'm not sure i understand whats going on, but i like it and for 20 bucks who can argue.
