The marketing line for Killer Is Dead‘s most recent trailer, “Mondo Girls,” practically writes itself: Hot Women… Cool Jazz… Killer Is Dead
The “Hot Women” include an unnamed woman with a pixie haircut; Natalia, a blonde bombshell; Scarlett, a nurse clearly modeled after a certain movie star with the same name; and Koharu, a Japanese woman who is in love with assassin Mondo Zappa. The “Cool Jazz” is courtesy of Marica Hiraga, a singer that wouldn’t be out of place on stage in a smokey bar backed only by a cello and a trumpet.
So sit back and relax as both sides of Suda 51’s obsessions come together in this trailer. Just… don’t watch it at work.
Killer Is Dead is in development at Grasshopper Manufacture for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The game will be released in Europe by Deep Silver in August 2013. XSEED Games will publish the game in America and a Summer release seems likely on this side of the Atlantic as well.
