More On: Wanted: Dead

Wanted: Dead from Japanese developer Soleil revealed a stunning new trailer at Tokyo Game Show, showing off the game's fast-paced GunFu-style combat, decapitating sword finishers, and various mini-games. Oh, and did I mention how brutally incredible the combat appears to be? Soleil features talent who have worked on combat in games such as Devil May Cry and Bayonetta - and does it ever shine through in this new trailer.

In Wanted: Dead, players will assume the role of Lt. Hannah Stone, who must lead her squad across a deadly cyberpunk version of Hong Kong. A variety of weaponry is on offer, from assault rifles to grenade launchers and of course - swords.

Wanted: Dead launches on February 14th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Check out the new Tokyo Game Show trailer below:

Tolochenaz, Switzerland - September 15th, 2022 - 110 Industries hacks and slashes in a grisly new Tokyo Game Show trailer for Wanted: Dead, revealing the sheer brutality that the game has to offer. Launching for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S & PC on February 14th, Valentine’s Day 2023, the trailer indulges us with a closer look at the game’s stylish high-octane combat mechanics, multiple mini-games, spectacular John Wick-esque style finishers and slick, limb-severing swordplay, accompanied by a seriously killer soundtrack.

Wanted: Dead will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show from September 15th - 18th for the first time in Japan as both media and the public will have the opportunity to go hands-on with 110 Industries and Soleil’s new hybrid slasher/shooter, from the makers of Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive.

Developed by Japanese studio Soleil and inspired by combat systems found in titles like Devil May Cry, Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Wanted: Dead unveils a brutal blend of relentless melee sword combat, thrilling gunplay and a unique limb severing system to deliver a deep action title to really raise the blood pressure.

Prepare for a fight to the death with an insanity-filled mix of advanced weaponry and lo-tech 90s retro-futurism, dealing devastating damage using projectile weapons such as assault rifles, SMGs, LMGs and grenade launchers. The fight you encounter will be far from easy in this truly hardcore experience so test your mettle and use every technique you have as you battle through hordes of mercenaries, synthetics and private security forces.

“We are excited to showcase Wanted: Dead at Tokyo Game Show this September, following our debut at gamescom and PAX West,” said Sergei Kolobashkin, founder and Creative Director at 110 Industries. “Our new Wanted: Dead Tokyo Game Show trailer perfectly captures the adrenaline fueled madness that will leave you gunning for more, we can’t wait for you to hack-n-slash your way through Wanted: Dead on Valentine’s Day 2023. We are stealing this holiday for ourselves.”  

The new Tokyo Game Show trailer features the track “Through the Night” by Stefanie Joosten and Raney Shockne. “Through the Night” is now available on all streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer.
