Outrageous violence, swordplay and beautiful art. Yep, it’s Suda 51 alright.
Famitsu has released a venerable treasure trove of sumptuous screenshots for the upcoming Suda 51-directed, Grasshopper Manufacture action adventure game Killer is Dead, scheduled to released this year for Xbox 360 and PS3.
We also get a look at the outrageous, cel-shaded and bombastic art style of Grasshopper Manufacturer (this week, at least). There’s plenty of sword play and cybernetic slashing, both embodying the iconography of No More Heroes and Killer 7. If Suda 51 was aiming to pay tribute to those titles, he’s certainly succeeded in spades.
Killer is Dead is expected to release this Summer, though there’s been no word on a Western release date.
