Killer Is Dead North American Release Date Revealed

Xseed has finally revealed the final release date for the North American version of Killer Is Dead, the latest game from Grasshopper and Suda 51. The unique third person action game will be available on August 27th on both Xbox 360 and Ps3: the game will cost 60$.

The publisher has also revealed that all launch copies of the game will include an 80 page hardcover art book, a soundtrack CD including 25 tracks and a Smooth Operator DLC pack which unlocks:

  • Gigolo Glasses
  • Alternate costume for Vivienne and Mika
  • A bonus Gigolo Mission with Betty
  • An additional episode with the vampiric Sebastian

Killer is Dead is going to be a really interesting game: Mondo Zappa will have to travel all over the world to take down the most dangerous criminal and killers. Suda 51 has stated many times that the game will be a mix of all his previous projects: the fact that Mondo Zappa is going after some crazy killers will probably make gamers think about No More Heroes. Just like in that game, the boss battles in Killer Is Dead are going to be unique and bloody affairs: Mondo Zappa will have to use his full arsenal to be able to dispose of these dangerous foes.

Killer Is Dead is going to be released on August 1st in Japan and on August 27th in North America on Ps3 and Xbox 360. More news on the European release will be coming soon so stay tuned for more.
