Suda51's Killer Is Dead Might Fill The Gaping Hole Left By Killer7

(Via Famitsu and Polygon)
I should warn you, anything that Suda51 touches instantly engages a very deep and very dark side of myself that no one should ever see. I don't think there has ever been a developer out there that makes me squeal the way Goichi Suda does, and while it's bordering the line of creepy and fanboy it's all with good reason.

Last April, Grasshopper Manufacture announced it's upcoming title Killer Is Dead and other than a brief plot synopsis nothing else was known about the title. Japanese gaming magazine, Famitsu has finally broken the silence on the title and released a huge slew of information that was thoughtfully translated by Polygon for all to read.

Seeing the visual style of Killer7 in full HD is basically all I've wanted this entire gaming generation, and with it nearing the end I wasn't expecting anything like this. Goichi Suda states "We're trying to make a game that we'd only be able to make right now, at this point in time. The result is seen in our unique high-contrast shading seen in the graphics, as well as the high speed wrestling-like action" and goddamn did they do a brilliant job.

Hit the jump for a few screenshots of the game and then head over to Famitsu for the full gallery.
