This Week In Imports: Killer Is Dead Is Ready For Hire

By Spencer . July 29, 2013 . 5:08pm


Killer is Dead starts off like Devil May Cry with a client hiring Mondo Zappa to investigate something strange and each episode ends with a bloody boss battle. Because of the violence level, Killer is Dead got a CERO Z rating, which is quite rare for a Japanese developed game. When Lollipop Chainsaw came out the PS3 version was rated CERO D (like ESRB M) and only the Xbox 360 version was CERO Z. Killer is Dead will be CERO Z on both consoles. Will this affect how the game sells?


MIND≒0 from Acquire and Class of Heroes developer ZeroDiv and Metro Last Light from Spike Chunsoft also come out this week.

    Cloudberry Kingdom is coming to PSN too. I know because I preordered it. Looks really fun / frustratingly hard, so I’m excited.

    Actually both the Regular ver for PS3 & 360 were Cero D, while the Premium (& subsequent Valentine) edition for both platform were Cero Z, so it was the same.. Even Cero Z rated games are not immune to censoring in Jpn, Tomb Raider was heavily censored, and then you have something like the disgusting Corpse Party OVA.. which looks many times more revolting..

    The Jpn cover is cool w/ the bosses, but it looks a bit busy to me and I prefer the US cover w/ just Mondo and the moon.. can’t wait for Killer is Dead and Ace Attorney 5 :)

    • NeoStrayCat

      Yeah, people notice the ratings in games and such.

      I also agree about the US cover of KID (lol), looks a bit better IMO too. :3

  • Does anyone really know the size of the poster in KID’s Fan edition ?

  • Asura

    Probably would have got it by now and probably would have been hyped if not for those wretched gigolo missions.
