Killer is Dead: More from Suda

at 2:49 PM
Just thought it necessary to pass on the debut trailer for Suda 51's newest, Killer is Dead. A Japanese release is confirmed for this summer, and while no NA plans have yet been announced, I think it's safe to say it'll show up here eventually. If we got Lollipop Chainsaw (by way of Warner Bros. no less), I don't know what it would take for Suda to render a game untenable for the West. From this trailer, looks like the game is going to continue in the footsteps of No More Heroes, both stylistically and in terms of gameplay. There was also a quick burst of shooting in there, but I doubt it'll be full on Shadows of the Damned. Lollipop had some brief throwaway gunplay as well.

This is the first time I've been worried about Suda's originality folding in on itself. No More Heroes and Shadows worked as satire and Lollipop and NMH2 as homage... frankly I'm happier to experience a failed experiment like Contact than yet another over-the-top actioner. But who knows. Killer is Dead could have any number of tricks up its sleeve, and at worst will probably be a really fun game.
