Suda 51, the developer behind No More Heroes, has revealed a few details on his upcoming game. Titled Killer is Dead, players take the role of a character with the job title of “Executioner” who goes around the world putting stop to high-ranking criminals. Little about the actual gameplay is known, other than that it’ll feature swords and presumably violence.
Killer is Dead is being developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and planning for the game began towards the end of 2009. However, development only began in Spring 2011 and is still in early stages. According to Suda, keywords relating to the game are moon, earth and love – the latter because the main character is fighting for someone he wants to protect.
Killer is Dead will be out in 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3. We’ll keep you posted when we hear more.
