Looks insanely fun. Expect no less from Suda51. Never made a bad game.

Bugger, it looks a bit too much like No More Heroes for my liking.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

Every previous over-hyped, crock of poodoo game Suda51 has been involved in?
Childhood pictures redeem, clean and so serene
See myself without ruining lines
Whole days throwing sticks into streams

I have crawled so far sideways
I recognise dim traces of creation

Game of the decade.


Oh and his games cant be overhyped when thet fly under most people's radar. I think the term you are looking for is beloved. They are what some would refer to as cult classics. Not enjoyed or even known by the masses, but loved by a small group.

My suggestions for naming the sequel:

- Killer is still dead
- Killer isn't really dead, you know (fooled you!)
- Killer is actually dead, this time
- Killer's killer is now also dead
- Killer's son isn't dead, though
- Killer's son: guess what's happened to him...

Another sequel name : Killer is dead 2: no more heroes?! ;)


I think Suda 51 is a great guy he seems to have a good sense of humour, his games are like popcorn flicks to me though in that you kinda turn your brain off & just enjoy them for what they are. Killer7 is still his best work even though it was odd & i really enjoyed No More Heroes (kinda hope he does NMH3 in the not too distant future) but Shadows of the Damned & Lollipop Chainsaw weren't as good to be honest, hopefully this game may be a return to form...

I know his games certainly aren't for everyone but i for one do enjoy his boss designs more than anything, having grown up with the old school Mega Man games the bosses Suda51 comes up with kinda remind me of those in that each boss has a specific power & that you need to figure out their moves & patterns to beat them.
