The game will focus on sword fighting, futuristic prosthetics
Developer Grasshopper Manufacture is using the most recent issue of the Japanese magazine Famitsu to offer more information on Killer is Dead, the next project from well-known game creator Suda51.The new action title will put the player in the stylish suits of Mondo Zappa, who has been recruited by a government agency called The Execution Office to travel around the world and take out a number of enemy assassins.
He also had his left arm modified to turn, at will, into everything from a drill to a weapon, complementing his sword-based fighting style, according to Gematsu.
The world of Killer is Dead is cyberpunk-inspired and has the Moon as a destination for family vacations.
Suda51 also reveals that players will be able to absorb blood from their enemies in order to power a special decapitation attack.
The game is expected to arrive on home consoles in late summer on the Japanese market.
