posted on by Karen Ressler
Kadokawa games began streaming a third promotional video for its and Grasshopper Manufacture's Killer is Dead video game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on Tuesday. The trailer, which is in Japanese with English subtitles, is the third in a series of promotional videos, and each one features a different character introduction at the end. The trailer also introduces more of the game's Japanese voice cast. XSEED Games has also streamed English-dubbed versions of the first three promotional videos. According to the new video, the game will ship in Japan in August.
XSEED plans to release the game in North America this summer.
The game stars Mondo, an "executioner" whose job it is to kill various heinous criminals. Executive director Suda51 stated the game will be full of the "condensed essence" of his previous "assassin games" such as killer7 and No More Heroes. He also noted that the game will feature sword fighting action just as No More Heroes does, and that it will be a "brilliant" game that goes in a different direction from the "pop and cute" Lollipop Chainsaw.
Update: XSEED is also streaming the same trailer with an English dub.
