Suda 51’s next game is Killer Is Dead

The creator of bizarre games such as No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned has spilled the beans on his new project.

The latest issue of Famitsu reveals Suda 51 is now working on an action game titled Killer Is Dead, according to Andriasang. It is due for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2013.

The action game is said to feature a similar style to Killer 7 and No More Heroes, continuing the latter’s swordplay mechanics. Players take on the role of a prisoner sentenced to die who is trying to kill his assassin.

Famitsu says the main character is a "dark side 007", and that the game will feature a number of beautiful Bond Girl-like women.

Killer Is Dead is the second game in a partnership between Suda’s studio Grasshopper Manufacture and Kadokawa Games. The first title, Lollipop Chainsaw, is being published in the UK on June 15th.
