Killer is Dead Launch Edition Announced for North America

XSEED Games have revealed the Killer is Dead Launch Edition for North America today, and this limited edition package isn’t half bad.

I’ve been writing about special editions for a long time and the general outcry by our North American cousins is Europe tends to get the better limited edition run packages but I’d say this is a far match-up to the Fan Edition.

Killer is Dead Launch Edition Announced for North America

All initial launch copies of the game (which includes pre-orders, obviously) will come packaged with:

  • 80-page hardcover art book
  • Soundtrack CD containing 25 songs
  • ‘Smooth Operator’ DLC pack containing:
    • Bonus in-game goods ‘Gigolo Glasses,’
    • An alternate costume for Vivienne and Mika
    • A bonus ‘Gigolo Mission’ with Betty
    • Entire additional episode with the vampiric Sebastian

“We are looking forward to the upcoming release of Killer is Dead with a special art book, soundtrack CD and bonus DLC,” said Shinichi Suzuki, President of XSEED Games / Marvelous USA, “Fans have been very supportive, which we’re extremely grateful for, so everyone who has pre-ordered the game or buys it at launch will get a deluxe version for no extra charge.”

Pretty generous bonuses for free, something rarely seen in this day and age. Of course it does lack a poster that is found in the Fan Edition, but with a price tag of $59.99 USD and all the extra goodies, it’s hardly worth complaining about.

Killer is Dead will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from August 27th, 2013 in North America.
