A remastered version of a beloved old game is always a great idea for all of the nostalgic gamers. Developers have been remastering their games since quite a while now and a lot of devs are taking interest in the remastered realm of games.
Similarly, Killer7, the cult action game from Goichi ‘Suda51’ Suda and Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, is in the process of being remastered and released for PC in 2018. The remaster was revealed during MomoCon, where Suda’s studio, Grasshopper Manufacture, hosted a 20th-anniversary stream.
“Dive into a dark world of underground assassins in a tale of revenge as Harman Smith, a man who manifests 7 deadly personalities into the real world, known as the killer7,” reads the official description. “Take control of this distinct murderers’ row as they hunt down the sinister Kun Lan, to stop his plan of world dominance, and end his organization of deadly suicide bombers known as ‘Heaven Smile.’
“For years, Suda51’s classic action-adventure title Killer7 has been highly desired among psychological thriller aficionados. And now, it’s finally coming back on Steam! Iconoclast writer/director Goichi Suda and legendary director Shinji Mikami bring back Killer7 for the first time in over 13 years, and fully rendered in high-definition.”
The fairly short trailer depicts a quick intro to the various characters that protagonist Harman Smith personifies. The trailer also uncovers that the remaster will be published by NIS, instead of CAPCOM, which originally published the previous main game back in 2005.
