Following the announcement of the PC port of Goichi “Suda51” Suda’s ancestral game Killer7, many recognized signals that some of the footage included in the trailer was possibly from the Dolphin GameCube and Wii emulator.

This sparked rumors alleging that the game might have not been an actual port, but simply an implementation of the emulator running the original GameCube code. In order to go to the bottom of the issue, DualShockers reached out to the game’s publisher NIS America.

Today we received a clarification:

“The emulator footage came from internal reference materials, which were mistakenly used in the creation of this trailer. No emulators have or will be used in porting killer7 to PC. We sincerely apologize for the confusion this has caused.”

So there you have it, straight from the lion’s mouth. The game will be an actual port, and it won’t involve any emulation.

The game will launch on Steam this fall, with no precise release date announced for the moment.

If you’re unfamiliar with Killer7, the game was originally released in 2005 for PlayStation 2 and GameCube. At the moment no other platforms besides PC have been announced for this re-release.
