It's almost time for another over-the-top bout of rampant insanity from Kadokawa Games and Grasshopper Manufacture.

Publisher XSEED Games has announced that Killer is Dead , the latest visceral production from Suda51 and his team, will be hitting store shelves in North America on August 27. It will be available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

All first-run copies of the game will come packaged with a special 80-page hardcover art book, a soundtrack CD that contains 25 songs, and the "Smooth Operator" DLC pack that boasts the unique Gigolo Glasses, alternate costumes for Vivienne and Mika, a bonus Gigolo Mission with Betty, and a whole new episode for the vampiric Sebastian. In the game's main adventure, players will take control of the flashy Mondo Zappa, a professional killer who has a sword on his right hand an artificial left hand that can wield multiple weapons. To learn more, check out our preview and visit the game's official website .

If you enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek violence and goofiness of games like Shadows of the Damned and Lollipop Chainsaw , this is undoubtedly the game for you. Get redy to slash!

I'm gonna enjoy this sometime down the road, as nice as those perks are I can't afford it when Tales of Xilla is coming.

still on the fence with this.
HATED shadows of the damned, but actually quite enjoyed lollipop chainsaw no matter how silly and sexist it was.
suda needs to play deadpool though, perfect demonstration of how to be silly, stupid, cheesy, and walk the line of sexism with class and style, and actually make it funny rather than juvenile and childish!

And I'll repeat this again-

When the press release comes, that's when it's official. It came yesterday.
