Will XSEED Games be handling localization of Suda51's upcoming game Killer is Dead? If a few web domain registrations placed by the company are any indication, the answer is yes.
Kotaku has discovered that XSEED registered the domain killerisdead-game.com last week. Additionally, the localization studio claimed the domains killandlove.com and loveandkill.com, both of which may be used for the game's marketing.
Silconera reached out to XSEED Games for comment. In response, Executive Vice-President Ken Berry commented: “Xseed Games cannot confirm that they are publishing Killer is Dead in North America.”
Killer is Dead is being developed by Goichi Suda aka Suda51 and his studio Grasshopper Manufacture. It is the spiritual successor to two of their previous games, Killer7 and No More Heroes. The game will be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan this summer. Last week, a trailer showing a first glimpse of Killer is Dead was released.
