Killer Is Dead: Nightmare Edition Will Get A Rare Retail Release In Japan

By Spencer . June 6, 2014 . 12:35am

killer_idDeep Silver and Grasshopper Manufacture worked on a PC version of Killer is Dead titled Killer is Dead: Nightmare Edition. This version includes all of the DLC missions, a new Theater mode, and a Nightmare difficulty level.


Killer is Dead: Nightmare Edition was released on Steam and in Japan it will also be sold in stores. E-Frontier is the publisher and Zoo is handling sales. While the game is on disc, it still needs to be activated through Steam.


Even if a game is developed in Japan, there’s no guarantee the PC version will be sold there. PC gaming is niche in Japan with the majority of releasing being visual novels. Falcom, for example, used to prioritize PC, but even their RPGs found more success when they moved to PSP.

    “Killer Is Dead: Nightmare Edition Will Get A Rare Retail Release In Japan” with a bug that makes the game unplayable on Mission 3. :P

      Bug, what bug? I played through KiD until the end and did not encounter any bug. Except glitches on my date clothes when I put on the eye glass. XD

    I had many high spectations for this game being a No More Heroes fan. But it is so slow and there is someting seriously wrong with the backgrounds so much empty space. has lots of potential but a harder difficulty setting is not going to do it. mabe moders can add all this game lacks.

    • Sion Cruz

      Mods can’t fix that big gapping plot (auto correct) vortex this game has. Other that that BIG issue, the game is very fun.

  • I really enjoyed that game

  • Zypharium

    I was really looking forward to this game, but it disappointed me in the end. It was nothing like Shadows of the Damned. No pervy jokes, no sex hotline, no boner, no walking on a sexy woman, you know what I mean. :D You did not even have a great partner with humour, and Mika is stupid as hell. I mean, yeah, she looks extremely hot, but I will not let any woman without intelligence in my bed. Betty and Koharu were just unbelievable hot, I could not take my eyes off of them. German and japanese women are great!

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    All of the DLC missions. All 1 of them!

  • Yan Zhao

    Still cant Gigolo Mika, my biggest gripe with the original!!!
