Killer is Dead: XSEED downplays US publishing rumours

By Dave Cook, Thursday, 24 January 2013 10:50 GMT

Killer is Dead – Grasshopper Manufacture’s rather mad-sounding hack n’ slash title – has been tied to publisher XSEED following a string of domain name registrations that appeared earlier this week. The publisher has contacted VG247 to deliver a frank, but painfully short debunker.

In a note sent to VG247, an XSEED rep stated, “XSEED Games cannot confirm that they are publishing Killer is Dead in North America.”

See? I told you it was short.

Regardless, Grasshopper founded Suda 51 has been talking about Killer is Dead in this week’s issue of Famitsu. He has discussed the game’s visual style and enemy types – including Yakuza that ride on tigers. All in a day’s work eh Suda?

We’ve also got the game’s debut trailer and a batch of screens. Enjoy!
