Cult, the classic assassination game Killer7, which came to PS2 and GameCube in 2005, will get a PC version later this year, developer Grasshopper Manufacture announced yesterday at MomoCon
From the head of Goichi "Suda51" Suda Hiroyuki Kobayashi and Killer7, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, give you control of the seven personalities of Harman Smith as he chases down the leader of a suicide bomber group that has world domination. It's part puzzle game, Part FPS, and the controls are almost like an on-rails shooter: you can press a button to move forward, and another to change the direction, to stop head shots.
Each character has his own personality, weapon and special abilities. For example, Mask de Smith, a former wrestler, wears a twin grenade launcher that can fire gravity grenades while Kevin Smith wears throwing knives, and no one has ever heard him speak.
Neither Grasshoper Manufacture nor NIS America publishers have revealed much about what features the PC version will have. All we know is that it will be available on Steam this fall and that it will be "optimized for PC". I'm sure more details will be coming soon, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this strange and wonderful game can be brought to modern standards.
A PC release is not a big shock: Suda51
