Grasshopper Manufacture’s latest eyebrow-raising endeavour Killer Is Dead will flirt with store shelves on 27th August in North America, publisher XSEED Games has announced. All launch editions of the bloodthirsty outing will be bundled with an 80-page hardcover art book, a soundtrack featuring 25 songs produced by legendary Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka, and a download code for the ‘Smooth Operator’ DLC pack, which includes a handful of bonus missions and content.

Those of you in Europe need not worry, as domestic publisher Deep Silver has confirmed that the exact same deluxe edition will be available overseas. You’ll have to twiddle your thumbs until 30th August to bag it in the old world, but we’re sure that it will be worth the wait. Is this title on your wishlist?
