Killer is Dead third trailer [Update 2]

Plus, Scarlett Missions detailed.

Kadokawa Games and Grasshopper Manufacture have released the third trailer for Killer is Dead, showing some of the lovely ladies Mondo will encounter.

You’ll see the previously revealed Natalia, voiced by Kanako Tojo, Scarlett, voiced by Manami Numakura, and 20-year-old new girl Koharu, voiced by Mai Nakahara, also called “The Golden Geisha.” A Famitsu preview also teases a second new girl named named Betty, who will be detailed in a follow-up report.

The report also details “Scarlett Missions.” Lurking throughout various stages is Scarlett, a scantily clad nurse you can find by breaking objects or entering hidden doors, watching Mondo’s every activity. Find her and she’ll issue a “Self-Challenge” for Mondo to complete, which can vary between defeating an enemy within a certain amount of time, defeating an enemy using only skills, or racking up a certain number of combo hits. Scarlett is aroused by such activity, and will gradually become more attracted to Mondo as he clears her challenges.

Killer is Dead is due out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 worldwide in August.
