Killer is Dead will slice up Japanese Xbox 360s and PS3s starting on August 1, according to Japanese site Hokanko-Alt. The site reports that the info comes courtesy of the latest issue of Dengeki Playstation. The game is also slated to arrive in Europe this August, though the North American launch is still a more nebulous "Summer 2013."

The latest from Grasshoper Manufacture and Kadokawa Games stars an elite assassin with a robot arm who hunts down and kills criminals. He also moonlights as a gigolo, apparently.
