Despite really (and I mean really) hoping that Suda’s recently announced game Killer is Dead was a sequel to Killer 7, it appears to not be the case. Over at Kotaku and a bunch of other places, it has been been stated that Killer is Dead is a whole new IP.
An assassin title that takes cues from both Killer 7 and No More Heroes, the game is about a person looking to murder his killer. It’s going to be pretty stylish, as it features “James Bond style Bond girls” and No More Heroes like swordplay.
Killer is Dead should be coming out sometime in 2013 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
