Killer Is Dead confirmed for a summer launch


As suspected, Xseed Games is localizing Suda51's Killer Is Dead for North America, and the title is due out this summer for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Japanese Lollipop Chainsaw developer Kadokawa Games and Dead Island publisher Deep Silver are releasing the action game in Europe and Oceania.

In Killer Is Dead, players control Mondo Zappa, an executioner who brandishes a Japanese sword in his right hand and interchangeable weapons in his left, an artificial limb.

GungHo Online Entertainment recently acquired developer Grasshopper Manufacture, but it won't be publishing this one.
