Awesome news over the weekend as this evening, NIS America announced that Iconoclast writer/director Goichi Suda and legendary director Shinji Mikami would be bringing Killer7 to Steam this Fall, fully upgraded and rendered in high-definition. Details about the release are, of course, sketchy beyond what’s been released by the company today. and no price point was attached to it either. But the key detail to keep in mind here is that this isn’t a remastered edition, it’s a graphical refresh, meaning you’re going to see the design it had 13 years ago but upgraded to look cleaner than before. Below is the official introduction to the game and the announcement trailer for your enjoyment.
