Killer is Dead coming this August
Launch date and bonus items announced
XSEED Games, the console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, has announced that Killer is Dead will start shipping to stores across North America on August 27th, 2013.
All initial launch copies of the game will come packaged with an 80-page hardcover art book, a soundtrack CD containing 25 songs, and the ‘Smooth Operator’ DLC pack containing bonus in-game goods ‘Gigolo Glasses,’ an alternate costume for Vivienne and Mika, a bonus ‘Gigolo Mission’ with Betty, and an entire additional episode with the vampiric Sebastian.
Developed jointly by KADOKAWA GAMES and Goichi Suda (aka SUDA51) and his GRASSHOPPER MANUFACTURE studio, Killer is Dead is set in a contemporary world where biomechanical augmentation is increasingly common. Players control Mondo Zappa, a professional ‘Executioner’ who wields a sword in his right hand while brandishing interchangeable weapons in his left artificial arm.
Killer is Dead will be released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
