Veteran Ninja Gaiden Developers Announce “Wanted: Dead” for PC, Consoles

You did it this time, Bon Jovi. They’re tired of your $#!+!

At Tokyo Game Show 2021, publisher 110 Industries and developer Soleil announced a new third-person action game Wanted: Dead for PC and consoles.

Set in a bleak, sci-fi version of Hong Kong, Wanted: Dead will feature both gunplay and melee combat inspired by Devil May Cry and Bayonetta.

Key development staff includes multiple action-adventure veterans, such as director Hiroaki Matsui (Ninja Gaiden series director), producer Yoshifumi Okamoto (producer on Ninja Gaiden II and Devil’s Third), lead designer Natsuki Tsurugai, and composer Dasha Rush.

Here’s the official breakdown of Wanted: Dead from followed by the teaser trailer:

Players assume the role of Lt. Hannah Stone, leader of the “Zombie Squad”, an elite team who work outside the purview of the traditional police force. Taking inspiration from the likes of Devil May Cry and Bayonetta, a deep combat system will give you the opportunity to take on enemies up-close and personal, or engage with guns from a distance, with cool slow-motion sequences, and a limb-severing mechanic that changes enemy attack patterns adding style and substance to combat encounters.

Among the talented team working on the game’s finessed combat systems are developers that previously worked on Ninja Gaiden and the Dead or Alive series.

Wanted: Dead is currently scheduled to release sometime in 2022 for PS5, SeXbox, and PC.
