Kadokawa Games and Grasshopper Manufacture have shared new information on characters and download content included in the Japanese Premium Edition of Killer is Dead, a first-run limited edition available at the same price as the regular edition.
A downloadable episode called “The Man Who Snatched Blood” containing “beautiful women, nocturnal beasts, and lingerie” is included in the Premium Edition. The quality of the episode is promised to be on par with the main game’s episodes. Two new sub-missions are unlocked once the new episode is cleared.
Characters who appear in the episode include the previously revealed bloodsucker beauty Betty, and a new character named Sebastian.
Vampire “Beauty” Betty
Betty a.k.a. “Lifeforcer”
Betty is a beautiful vampire co-existing with humans (a real beauty) who loves wine, but prefers the blood of strong men. She becomes one of the Bryan Execution Office’s clients after requesting Mondo carry out the execution of Sebastian, who transformed into an enhanced being known as a “Wire.” Mondo will face Sebastian in his castle.
Betty only appears in the downloadable episode and is also the fourth Mondo Girl.
Execution Target Sebastian
Origin: English (UK)
Sebastian is a gentleman with a strong interest in vampires who captivates beautiful women with his suave appearance. He hates being disturbed by people. An execution target with repulsive attacks, he transforms into an abominable monster when engaged in battle.
He only appears in the downloadable episode and is not part of the main game.
Also detailed are two new enemies. Dark Eyes are huge, armored, flying eyeball Wire creatures who suddenly appear out of thin air. They can summon Red Eye creatures, who appear from above the ground and attack Mondo with destructive beams. When destroying them, they explode, so it’s best to stay back on the final hit.
Killer is Dead is due out in Japan on August 1, and in North America and Europe on an unannounced day in August. Screenshots showing the Premium Edition content detailed above can be seen at the gallery.
