Killer Is Dead is a futuristic action game revolving around Execution Office agent Mondo Zappa. Loaded with cybernetic implants you are charged with tracking down and terminating criminal targets, the main antagonist being a cyborg named Victor, who has the ability to manipulate human emotions by using sound.

Killer Is Dead is set in a not-so-distant future similar to (but not the same as) the world we know now. The player takes control of an executioner named Mondo Zappa who wields a Japanese sword in his right hand and brandishes interchangeable weapons in his left artificial arm. His ultimate goal is to execute various heinous criminals scattered around the world and beyond.

Completely unique visuals and outstanding stylish action come together to deliver an unprecedented gaming experience in Killer Is Dead. This brand-new action title is being jointly developed by Kadokawa Games and Grasshopper Manufacture, with SUDA51 lending his trademark sense of style at the helm. Deep Silver, the games label of Koch Media, will bring the title to the countries of Europe and Oceania.

“XSEED is ringing in the New Year by sharing a glimpse of our upcoming lineup of great titles for 2013, including the exciting partnership for Killer Is Dead, the newest creation from Kadokawa Games and SUDA51, which I personally selected to bring to the US market,” said Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of XSEED Games. “In the coming year, we will release an array of solid action and role-playing games that are sure to delight fans through a combination of high quality gameplay and well-crafted localization.”
