If you’re eagerly waiting for Killer is Dead, today’s your lucky day, as we just got a new press release with quite a lot of interesting info and assets for you to enjoy.
We learn about the game’s sixth episode in which Mondo is hired to execute Victor, an evil musician that stole the talent of Jubilee, a lovely lady whose music is so moving that it can even save a wicked man from a life of wrongdoings.
Mondo will have to head to the 1000th floor of Victor’s own skyscraper, cutting through enemies and even destructible pieces of the environment in order to defeat Victor and restore Jubilee’s talent.
Two of the minor enemies Mondo will have to defeat during this ordeal are the Skyplane, a flying drone armed with a gatling that is used mainly for reconnaissance and distraction, and the Beast, a large and brutish foe that packs high speed, powerful attack and a vicious dodge to compensate its lack of intelligence. It doesn’t have weapons, but relies a lot on tackling and biting. You can see them both in the gallery at the bottom of this post.
During every mission Mondo will need to find Scarlett, defined a “certified blood-sucking nurse”. She’ll be hiding either behind destructible walls or secret doors, and once found she’ll present our protagonist with a challenge. Scarlett’s challenges may vary between killing a certain number of enemies in a given amount of time or reaching a high enough combo streak. Every time Mondo completes a challenge Scarlett will get “all hot and bothered” (these aren’t my words, they come directly from the press release, I swear), and fall for Mondo a bit more.
It’s very likely that she’ll be the one to give Mondo the pink set of Gigolo Glasses (that we saw in an earlier post about the game), since she’s seen wearing them herself.
We also meet another of the “Mondo Girls”. Here’s her official profile:
Koharu A.k.a: “The Golden Geisha“
Height: 5′ 3″
Koharu is greatly attracted to Mondo’s special aura. She doesn’t treat Mondo as her customer, but instead sees him as a man. Upon meeting Mondo, Koharu can’t help but spill details on her private life, which baffles Koharu as it’s something she’s never done before.
A second “Mondo Girl” was just teased as well: a classy brown-haired lady named Betty. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait for another press release to know exactly who she is. In the meanwhile you can enjoy a brand new trailer and a large batch of new screenshots just below.
