Even though we really don’t know too much about Killer is Dead, the upcoming project from Grasshopper Manufacture and Kadokawa Games, there are a number of assumptions it’s fairly safe to make. The lead character is an executioner with a gun for a hand. His name is Mondo Zappa. The whole thing has emerged from the mind of Suda51. Surely, that’s enough…
This is the first time we’ve been treated to the English voice acting cast*, which further reinforces exactly the assumptions we’ve already jumped to. It’s a stylish hack’n’slash, and we’re promised some fascinating, exciting characters – so does it really matter that we don’t know much else about what’s in store?
Killer is Dead is due out in the northern Summer for PS3 and Xbox 360.
* One thing that we don’t know is whether the English dialogue will be an option, or whether we’ll be stuck with that or Japanese depending on where we’re based in the world. When we find out, we’ll let you know.
