Suda 51 has officially revealed Killer Is Dead, the Grasshopper Manufacture-developed game that will arrive sometime after Lollipop Chainsaw's June 12, 2012 release, the latest issue of Famitsu confirms. In fact, the game will be the product of the same partnership that Grasshopper has with Kadokawa Games on Lollipop.

Killer Is Dead is not a sequel to either Killer 7 or No More Heroes, though with the main character carrying a job title of "Executioner," there's obviously a spiritual tie to those earlier Suda games. The main character basically travels all around the globe, taking out "S level criminals" along the way. It's not clear how this Executioner gets the job done, but Killer Is Dead won't be returning to the swordplay of No More Heroes.

Suda notes in an interview that while planning started for Killer Is Dead toward the end of 2009, development didn't start in earnest until spring 2011. It's still early days too. A prototype will be ready soon if it isn't already and the first draft of the game's story, a process which Suda is overseeing, was only recently finished.

Suda also drops a few more vague hints. While Killer Is Dead isn't science fiction, the enemies you'll be taking on have some connection with the moon. There's also an underlying theme of love in the game, with the main character doing the work that he does in order to protect someone else.

I told you it was vague. Hopefully we'll be hearing more about this one soon.
