New information released for Killer is Dead

For those of you unfamiliar with the title, this is Suda 51‘s latest work for Playstation 3 and XBOX 360. The game has a No More Heroes vibe, but traces of Killer7 can also be seen in this title. It has been a while since we heard anything new about this game, so let’s just see what Famitsu had to tell us about it this week!

The game will take place in many different settings around the world. The only ones we are told for sure are Japanese alleyways and old Western style buildings

Your task is to execute assassins for an organization known as ‘The Execution Office’

Basic attacks involve using a sword, but your main character comes with his left arm modified and you can use this as a drill, gun, among other things. It can also be upgraded

When you absorb enough of your enemy’s blood, you can later unleash an attack known as ‘Adrenaline Burst’ which is much stronger than a normal attack

It seems enemies can also be turned into dark matter as well and can be consumed as energy if used with blood during the Adrenaline Burst

The Moon seems to play a big part in the story (as featured in multiple shots in the scans below)

Mondo Zappa is the protagonist. He is a 35 year old male born in America. He seems to be a fearless man that loves to seduce women and his favorite food is a half-boiled egg

Mika Takekawa is Mondo‘s assistant. She was born in Japan, is 20 years old, and is great at making half-boiled eggs. She is currently living with Mondo and they have a great relationship, but she can be a bit of a ditz most of the time

Vivian Squall is a 25 year old woman who was born in England and is Mondo‘s boss. She is a young blonde woman that is usually calm most of the time, but can become quickly irritated when discussing private affairs

Brian Roses is the Chief of ‘The Execution Office’. He is a 65 year old man who was born in America and was once known as the best executioner, and was even turned into a cyborg at one point, but he is retired from executing now and focuses more on managing the office

Victor is hard to sum into words, but he seems to steal talent from musicians. He uses this talent to manipulate human emotion by playing the songs on top of a tower. It is clear his intent is evil and he wishes to fill the world with malice through music. His appearance is quite deceiving too. He presents himself as a human, but when he transforms, he is robotic.
