It looks like Gung-Ho Entertainment is planning to bring back the cult classic Killer7 through a "collab" event in the free-to-play PS4 title Let It Die. The event is to honor the Grasshopper Manufacture's 20th anniversary. 

The crossover is due sometime in spring and for those that don't know, the studio is headed by designer Suda51, who was the director of Killer7 and many other crazy games like Lollipop Chainsaw and Killer is Dead.

No details were given as to what the event will contain but let's hope that it won't contain simple Killer7-themed items for Let It Die players. Killer7 is a  game that to this day comes as a unique experience thanks to its visual art style and unorthodox gameplay mechanics. It's a game that sparked a lot of discussions about its story and how the game was presented, resulting in a few revisits of the game by fans years later.

If let's say a return to the world of Harman Smith comes to light even in the form of a remaster, that wouldn't be a bad idea. At the very least, it's great to see the studio honoring one of the games that started it all. 

Let It Die, is the latest game from the studio, and it's a free-to-play hack and slash game where players go through each level of the Tower of Barbs, in hopes of reaching the top. Last February, they announced that Let It Die has reached 4 million downloads since it's release back in 2016, showing a strong and thriving community for the game.
