Killer is Dead coming August 27, launch copies include bonuses

Killer is Dead has set a date for its gonzo-action. XSEED and Marvelous USA announced today that the game is due on August 27 for $59.99. Launch copies of Suda51's latest will come with a few bonuses, to convince you to pick up your copy early.

The launch bonuses include an 80-page hardcover art book, 25-track soundtrack CD, and the "Smooth Operator" downloadable content pack. That comes with "Gigolo Glasses," a bonus Gigolo mission with Betty, costumes for Vivienne and Mika, and an additional episode with Sebastian. Our recent E3 preview noted the ten-part episodic structure, so a whole extra episode could be significant. The Gigilo content left me unconvinced at that showing, but if you get a kick out of leering at virtual ladies, you can get more of that.
