First ‘Killer is Dead’ Trailer is Predictably Insane

The makers of Lollipop Chainsaw are back with another off-the-wall action title.

The first trailer has been released for the next game from executive producer Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture (Killer7, No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw). It’s called Killer is Dead, and as expected, the game looks insane. The below trailer is in Japanese with English subtitles, although no matter what language it’s in it doesn’t really do a great job getting across the point of the story, or why the “hero” has a robot-gun arm, or why some dude no longer needs a fleshy body. But we’ll let it slide for now.

Judging from the pedigree of Suda51 and Grasshopper, the game will probably be nonsensical anyway, leaving the gameplay to do the heavy lifting. And from what we can take away from the below trailer, Killer is Dead’s action looks pretty stylish and smooth. The game is supposedly coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in summer 2013.
