Let's talk about anything about video games, no matter what platform it is. What is your favorite game? Who is your favorite character? What are the recently released games? What is DLC (downloadable content)? How do I beat this boss? How do I set up my team?

Grasshopper announces Killer is Dead
Directed by Suda 51 (and not a Killer 7 sequel).
http://gematsu.com/2012/04/grasshopper- ... er-is-dead

This week’s Famitsu has the scoop on a new Grasshopper Manufacture production. To be published by Kadokawa Games for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013, Killer is Dead is a new action game directed by Goichi Suda (Suda 51).

The game follows an executioner imprisoned and sentenced to death, now out to kill his assassin. Its keywords are “moon” and “earth.” Though not a sequel to Killer 7, the game will have the essence of Killer 7 and No More Heroes. Sword fighting is said to be similar to the latter, but with new elements.

The game will also have beautiful James Bond-esque ladies. It’s described as a “Dark Side 007.”

Kadokawa Hopes to Use Lollipop Chainsaw Feedback For Killer is Dead
http://andriasang.com/con1qx/killer_is_dead_lollipop/

In an interview with Impress Watch, Kadokawa Games CEO Yoshimi Yasuda said that he's speaking with Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Suda 51 to see that user feedback from Grashopper's recent Lollipop Chainsaw will be put to use in Grasshopper's next game, Killer is Dead.

The feedback for Lollipop Chainsaw was mixed, Yasuda said. While the game did get plenty of praise, he was also happy to see feedback of the form "this is bad" and "fix this" and "if you make a sequel, do this." Not only does Kadokawa listen to this form of player opinion, Yasuda noted that third party analysis played a part in Lollipop's development.

Yasuda mentioned Killer is Dead, Kadokawa's second joint project with Grasshopper, only one other time in his interview with Impress, saying that development of the game is reaching its peak. We've heard little about the game since its announcement back in April, so Yasuda's comments hopefully mean that Kadokawa will begin a promotional push soon.

Grasshopper Manufacture reportedly showed a trailer of the new game at the event, which showed a male character with a cyborg arm and katana, and will be cell shaded alá No More Heroes. The developer isn’t saying much about the game at present but Suda said the game will have lots of attractive women and tell a new assassin’s story in the tradition of Killer7 and No More Heroes.

Killer is Dead detailed in Famitsu
The latest from Killer7 director Goichi Suda.

Famitsu this week has a six-page feature on Grasshopper Manufacture’s Killer is Dead, directed by Killer7 and No More Heroes all-star Goichi “Suda 51″ Suda.

Story

Only a short time in the future, where we travel to the moon and remodel our bodies, one day the main character Mondo Zappa receives a notification of employment from the secret state agency called “The Execution Office.”

Gameplay

The battle basics are primarily close proximity attacks with swords. Weapons unfold in acrobatic movements.

In addition, the main character’s left arm has been modified and can change from a drill to a gun, etc. It can be upgraded as you progress. Mondo lost his memory of modifying his left arm.

By absorbing your enemy’s blood, you can utilize a powerful attack called “Adrenalin Burst.” A large quantity of blood gushes when you decapitate your enemies.

There is a component where you can transform people into dark matter, too. The Adrenalin Burst move seems to change the dark matter included in the blood into energy.

Setting

The moon appears in various images.

Stages are set in various places around the world, including old Western style buildings and an alleyway with Japanese style homes.

Xseed Register Web Domains For Killer Is Dead
Earlier today, a report revealed that Xseed might be the U.S. publisher of Grasshopper Manufacture’s next game, Killer Is Dead. A week ago, Xseed registered a bunch of web domains pertaining to the game.

We got in touch with Xseed to see if they had any comment, and the publisher’s Executive Vice-President, Ken Berry, replied: “Xseed Games cannot confirm that they are publishing Killer is Dead in North America.”

Killer Is Dead hasn’t been formally announced for a U.S. release yet. Japan will get the game this summer.
