XSEED Games Launches DEADLY PREMONITION and KILLER IS DEAD through Games on Demand for Xbox 360
Publisher’s Halloween Starts Early with Iconic Psychological Horror Game and SUDA51’s Bizarre Journey into a Mysterious World Packed with Violence
Torrance, Calif., (September 16, 2013) – Get your spook on early! XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., announced that the suspense horror title DEADLY PREMONITION and stylish action title KILLER IS DEAD are now both available for digital download at a suggested retail price of $19.99 and $49.99, respectively, for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft through the Games on Demand service of the Xbox Games Store. Previously released in 2010, DEADLY PREMONITION quickly became a cult hit striking a chord with fans of open world, non-linear play, and quirky narratives. KILLER IS DEAD, the latest title from KADOKAWA GAMES and game creator Goichi Suda (aka SUDA51) and his GRASSHOPPER MANUFACTURE studio, brings a surreal and ultra-violent tale to life with stylish cel-shaded visuals as players take on the role of executioner, Mondo Zappa.
In DEADLY PREMONITION players investigate the murder of Anna Graham as FBI special agent Francis York Morgan (York) in Greenvale, a town set “somewhere” in America. The investigations reveal the murder of Anna Graham is not a singular incident and that mysterious red seeds may be the link between Anna’s murders and others. York and his “friend” Zach encounter surreal situations and discoveries throughout their horrific exploration and must survive in a place where supernatural creatures and a folklore killer seek to end the investigation permanently. DEADLY PREMONITION offers over 20 hours of gameplay with York encountering his foes in an open world environment with a combination of a third person shooter and driving action blended into an adventure filled with plenty of side quests.
KILLER IS DEAD is an episodic cyberpunk thriller presented with striking art direction reminiscent of a moving comic book. Set in a futuristic world where biomechanical augmentations increase the power of criminals and executioners alike, players control Mondo Zappa, a professional ‘Executioner’ who wields a sword in his right hand while brandishing interchangeable weapons in his left artificial arm. Mondo encounters all manner of violent adversaries in KILLER IS DEAD throughout his global trek to fulfill contracts for ridding the world of its most nefarious criminals.
