Goichi Suda, the man behind No More Heroes and Killer 7 (above), is working on a new game called Killer Is Dead. According to the upcoming issue of Famitsu, Suda is directing this assassin title. The game apparently takes its cues from both Killer 7 and No More Heroes. Killer Is Dead, however, is an original game.


The game follows a protagonist on a mission to rub out his killer.

Killer Is Dead is like a "Dark Side 007" and features James Bond style Bond Girls and sword play, much like No More Heroes, but with new twists.

Killer Is Dead is slated for a 2013 release on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
