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.
Jesse McFadden, the vocalist, MC and guitarist of the rock band RIZE, created Jesse and The Bonez in November 2012 through a musical collaboration project known as “Stand Up!” Two of their songs – “BossMan” and “Access Violation” – used in the game are from their first album, “Stand Up!”, which was recently ranked in the top 60 albums of 2012 in Japan.
Jesse’s musical collaboration project “Stand Up!” started on November 11, 2011, and the band was formed a year later on November 11, 2012.
The diverse musical background of each band member enables them to create a unique mixture of sounds from alternative, hip-hop, folk, and even contemporary urban genres. The Bonez consists of American musician Jesse, best known as the Vocalist/Lyricist/Composer of the band RIZE, T$UYO$HI (Bass) & ZAX (Drums) from Pay Money To My Pain , in addition to ZUZU (Guitar) who was discovered via “Stand Up!” project auditions.
Their energetic live performances are fueled by Jesse’s solid, driven and incredibly powerful vocals, along with potent rhythms led by T$UYO$HI and ZAX, and the melodically-driven guitar sound injected by ZUZU.
Killer Is Dead supports dual audio, users will be able to select the original Japanese voiceover with subtitles if they please.
