As much of a fan as I am of Grasshopper Manufacture their games have always been a bit clunky to control, especially their latest game Lolipop Chainsaw. Even Shadows of the Damned wasnt quite up to par with other survival horror games despite Shinji Mikami's involvement.
So when Killer is Dead was announced I didnt expect much, but it seems it's quite a step up from their other games at least as far as I can tell from this trailer.
Looks promising. This might anger Killer 7 fans though, as it looks a lot more like No More Heroes, but hopefully some of them enjoy hack & slash games as much as I do. Also Eurogamer have compiled a bunch of gameplay videos so if you're interested check it out.
