Killer Is Dead

Killer Is Dead is an action video game in development by Grasshopper Manufacture for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It is currently slated for a worldwide release this summer, and will be published by Kadokawa Games in Japan, by XSEED in North America and by Deep Silver Games in Europe and Oceania.
 
Described as an amalgamation of the play-styles in Grasshopper's killer7 and No More Heroes, Killer Is Dead places players in the role of an Executioner tasked with eliminating S-Level Criminals. The game will illustrate the "dark side" of being a James Bond-esque secret agent, and will feature many "beautiful Bond Girl-like ladies" as well as fighting mechanics involving swordplay.

Suda has described Killer Is Dead as, "the story of a man who doesn't show himself much in the public world but still worms his way into society and mercilessly eliminates the evil dispersed in it. It's a personal story, not one that's conscious of the chaos going on in the real world at the moment, but you might get more than a taste of that in the end anyway."
