Killer Is Dead trailer breaks the fourth wall, has bondage-gear swordfights

A new trailer for Suda 51's surreal hyper-violent action game Killer Is Dead mixes action and cutscenes with protagonist Mondo Zappa facing off against a myriad of foes.

The trailer introduces us to an antagonist named David, who says he's seeking power to take over the world. Mondo calls him out on this by breaking the fourth wall between fiction and the audience, saying it's trite and cliche and that the gamers will complain about it.

Following up on that, the trailer introduces enemies like a spider-lady fought in a house made out of sweets like candy and doughnuts and a giant that shoots lasers out of its eyes. Mondo and David duel, with the antagonist clad in what appears to be a golden fetish harness and jock strap.

Killer Is Dead releases on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this August.
