You Fight A Guy Riding A Tiger On A Motorcycle. That's Killer is Dead.

Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

Famitsu has released two trailers showcasing Killer7 mastermind Goichi Suda's upcoming crazy violent, crazy... crazy action game, Killer is Dead.


The first video gives us an impression of what combat will look like; very stylized, very colorful, and very fast. Protagonist Mondo Zappa slices, dices, and drills his way through baddies monstrous and humanoid alike. The second one, however...

Shows us the dating minigame, called "Gigolo Mode." It's weird. The objective is to stare at girls' "sexy points," which fills your health meter. Scoring well nets you a pair of x-ray specs, the "Gigolo Glasses." I'm sure you can already tell where this is going.


Killer is Dead is out in Japan on August 1 for PS3 and Xbox 360. It's gonna be a wild ride.

When I read the headline, I thought it meant the guy was fighting a guy, who was riding a tiger, with that tiger riding a motercycle. :|
