Game Overview

KILLER IS DEAD is an action game developed by Grasshopper Manufacture for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Advertised heavily as a Suda51 game, despite his only credit as a Writer, the game follows an executioner named Mondo Zappa who works for the Bryan Execution Firm. His job entails hunting down dangerous criminals and assassins.

While the game isn't a sequel to any previous games, it is considered to maintain the essence of the assassin series started with Killer7 and No More Heroes. The games unique artistic style and story has been described as a "Dark Side 007", but deals with an even seedier underworld that the surface world.

Bad timing really, the game no doubt
wouldn't do that well in Japan but by
the time it drops in the US... man. Hope
Grasshopper don't lose too much on this
or at least get a chunk back with the
upcoming Liberation Maiden Visual Novel

Japan but... damn

Only 17,000 in Japan pretty much seals
this one its a huge flop. I enjoyed
Shadow and Lollipop was amusing, but
they keep flopping like this and
eventually you have to close your doors.
