What do you get when you mix Bayonetta with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance ?

Uh…this piece of inspired, mind-bending insanity.

Killer is Dead is the latest over-the-top action extravaganza from Grasshopper Manufacture and Kadokawa Games ( Shadows of the Damned , Lollipop Chainsaw ), and it's lookin' mighty interesting. The latest trailer sort of lulls you into this false sense of security and the wallops you right between the eyes. First, there's a dramatic, highly stylized story bit and then, Mondo Zappa goes absolutely apesh**.

We're not really sure what's happening there, or how exactly Mondo does what he does, but perhaps those are questions that are best left unasked. Killer is Dead is due out this summer for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
