Killer is Dead: Nightmare Edition comes to PC

It’s a shame we didn’t have this option from the beginning, but as they say, it’s better late than never. Deep Silver has today announced that Killer is Dead, Grasshopper’s latest cell-shaded weirdness, is coming to PC.

Titled the Nightmare Edition, Killer is Dead‘s PC release will include the Nightmare difficulty, where only Adrenaline Burst, Dodge Burst, and Headshots cause damage to enemies. A theater mode and the Smooth Operator DLC will also be included in the package.

While I’m confident that the game will look and perform well on PC, I still have major issues with the game’s writing and characters. In my review I called Killer is Dead, “an OK action game with a horrible plot that seeps desperation from its developer to outdo themselves.” I had some big issues with it, but at least it’s now coming to a platform where its art style – something I really liked about the game – will shine and more people will get to play it.

Killer is Dead: Nightmare Edition will be arriving to the Master Race platform on May 9 for $19.99. Check out the trailer below to be as confused as I was when I played the game.

    I actually liked Killer Is Dead. Mainly because of the art style yes, but I also like games every now and then where I have no idea what is going on, but it feels dark. I just wish I had waited to play it now because I would’ve rather played it on PC in the first place.

    As a huge fan, i liked the game on PS3, but now i feel like an idiot for buying it at release. To be fair, as much as i liked the art style, it does feel like something’s missing in this one. Sure, Suda games are always more about the style than everything else, but KiD was the first time i felt like it is the ONLY thing going for it. The game feels less polished than Lollipop Chainsaw and Shadows of The Damned, right out of the bat, and the mission structure makes the gameplay feel disjointed and inconsistent. I dunno, there’s something off with this game. Not even the soundtrack is memorable, definetly Akira Yamaoka’s worst job.
    It saddens me to admit that this is the first time i regret buying a Suda51 game at full price.

      I never bother to say anything about the gameplay on Suda51 games, as they’re never good. Even when they’re okay, it gets old real quick. I agree about the soundtrack, I don’t see any reason to get the OST for it.
