Killer is Dead Ship Date and Deluxe Launch Edition Announced


The next great bizarro action game from Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture is set to slice up store shelves on August 27th, XSEED Games confirmed today.

At launch, all initial PS3 and Xbox 360 copies of Killer is Dead will be available in a deluxe edition featuring an 80-page hardcover art book, a 25-song soundtrack CD, and a Smooth Operator DLC bonus pack. The Smooth Operator pack will contain “in-game goods ‘Gigolo Glasses,’ an alternate costume for Vivienne and Mika, a bonus ‘Gigolo Mission’ with Betty, and an entire additional episode with the vampiric Sebastian.”

Priced at $59.99, the Killer is Dead deluxe launch edition won’t cost a cent more than the normal retail price. Now go pre-order. Mondo Zappa says so, and you don’t want to piss off anyone named Mondo Zappa (particularly one who’s a master swordsman and has all sorts of biomechanical augmentations at his disposal).
