Concept

The title revolves around Harman Smith, a 60-year-old assassin who is bound to a wheelchair. He is capable of manifesting seven personalities into the real world, each with their own personal style of killing; the group is collectively known as the Killer7. The dominant personality is Garcian Smith, who, while in the presence of security cameras or television sets, has the ability to call upon the six other members of the Killer7 anywhere at any time. Unlike most multiple personalities, Harman does not just think he is someone else; rather, his personae actually take on a unique physical body when called upon. Harman Smith is the main character in the metaverse of Killer7. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

A physical body is an object which can be described by the theories of classical mechanics, or quantum mechanics, and experimented upon by physical instruments. ...


Gameplay

The gameplay in Killer7 is that of an unconventional first-person shooter. The game takes place on rails, and the player, using the A and B buttons (or for the PS2, the Triangle and X buttons), directs the character on-screen to move forward or reverse direction, respectively. The most freedom the player has comes when the player reaches intersections, at which point the player must choose which path to continue. This article is about video games. ... This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


A substantial part of Killer7 is its puzzles. The player must collect rings that will help them to progress. There are 6 rings (not counting the vision ring); Fire, Water, Wind, Time, Stamina and Power. The diversity of the characters is what provides for most of the mystery in the game. If the player hears the twang of a guitar, it means that a puzzle needs to be solved or an item needs to be used. A lighter tune is heard when the player has successfully overcome an obstacle.


When the player encounters one of the enemies, known as Heaven Smiles, it announces its presence by laughing maniacally. The player then must go to first-person shooting mode and scan their surroundings in order to see it. Destroying any limbs of the Smile or hitting their weak "critical spot" consisting of a glowing spot on their body gives the player so-called "Thick Blood", which is then used to upgrade six of Harman's seven personalities (Garcian cannot be upgraded) at checkpoints called "Harman's Rooms," which sometime offer the ability to save, and always exist for blood upgrades and as respawn points should one of the Killer7 be slain. Look up Limb in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Story

The storyline has many interpretations and meanings, with the main strands being: the Killer7 group, political tensions between Japan and the United States, a mutant terrorist group named the Heaven Smile, and the demi-gods Harman Smith and Kun Lan. The Killer7 is best described as a collective of murdered assasins, re-born and controlled by a demi-god force that has a human representation called Harman Smith. Killer7 is in direct opposition with the demi-god force represented by Kun Lan, which both created and controlls the group of creatures called Heaven Smile (humans who have been touched by Kun Lan's "God Hand").

After a series of "Targets", missions which either chronicle the rising political tension between Japan and the rest of the world or are tangential sidestories which have little to do with the overarching plot of the game, the player discovers that Garcian is actually Emir Parkreiner, once an assassin trained by the Japanese United Nations Party at their training facility in Coburn Elementary School. The goal of the United Nations Party is to unify the whole world under Japanese control, using the Yakumo Policy, which was devised by previous Japanese politicians as the ultimate way to achieve power. The UN Party aimed to do this by training children to become assassins and politicians at Coburn. Emir Parkreiner was a star student at the school and was mentored by then-Principal, Harman Smith. Image File history File links Screenshot from Killer 7. ... Image File history File links Screenshot from Killer 7. ...


Emir became a hit man and killed Harman Smith and his team of assassins, who were staying at the Union Hotel in Philadelphia. Emir killed all of the Smith assassins and after killing Harman Smith, Emir, who believed he had killed his mentor, shot himself on the roof on the hotel. Nickname: Motto: Philadelphia maneto - Let brotherly love endure Location in Pennsylvania Coordinates: , Country Commonwealth County Philadelphia Founded October 27, 1682 Incorporated October 25, 1701 Government  - Mayor John F. Street (D) Area  - City 369. ...


Garcian becomes aware of his true identity after reliving his past events when a mission leads him back to the Coburn Elementary School and the Union Hotel. At Coburn Elementary School, Garcian comes in contact with cassette tapes that elaborate on the identity of Emir Parkreiner. When the Killer7 reach the auditorium, the Smith personas all presumably die at the hands of seemingly invincible Heaven Smiles. After all the personalities die, Garcian appears and takes possession of his old weapon, the Golden Gun (an homage to James Bond), killing the Heaven Smiles. He proceeds to the Union Hotel, seeking answers. The Golden Gun is a customized pistol that is seen in the James Bond 007 movie The Man with the Golden Gun and several other James Bond 007 video games. ... Flemings image of James Bond; commissioned to aid the Daily Express comic strip artists. ...


There, he experiences several flashbacks of the Smith Assassins being systematically shot and killed by someone armed with the Golden Gun. On the top floor of the Union Hotel a young Harman Smith reveals Garcian's true identity, and Garcian witnesses the final flashback of Emir's suicide, and becomes remorseful and in denial over killing his own team. He opens his briefcase and discovers he had been carrying their weapons in his briefcase the entire time. For other uses, see Suicide (disambiguation). ...


Three years later, Emir/Garcian arrives at Battleship Island in Japan to resolve the issue of Heaven Smile and the escalating diplomatic tension between Japan and the United States. There, he meets Kenjiro Matsuoka, a president of the United Nations Party. He warns Emir that if he does not kill him right now, the U.N. will rally under him and plan a massive assault on the U.S.. But if Emir kills him, then Japan will be destroyed by the U.S. to hide Japan's knowledge of the fact that the elections in the United States are rigged by the Education Ministry. So the player must decide whether to save Japan or the United States, and essentially forced to continue the cycle of east vs. west. “Gunkanjima” redirects here. ...

Bush (R)  - Vice President Dick Cheney (R) Independence - Declared - Recognized...


Either way, Emir finds himself back in his trailer house, where he chases down the Last Shot Smile into the basement where it is revealed to be Iwazaru. He finishes off Iwazaru/Kun Lan, finally ending the menace of the Heaven Smiles.


However, despite Emir's efforts, the battle between deity Harman and Kun Lan, restarts 100 years later in Shanghai, and so the battle between "Good/Evil," Yin/Yang, East/West forever goes on.


Shinji Mikami has been quoted saying, "Me and Goichi Suda [the writer] are fond of plotlines that are 'Open Ended,' and what I mean by that is, when you first play the game you will think, 'What-Just happened?' and it's not until you watch it all again that you say, 'Oh, he was talking about this thing or event here, or he was referring to THAT person' and it's not until then that the plot starts to make sense. These are very complex, very involving stories that you do not usually see in video games these days." Goichi Suda , born January 2, 1968), is the CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture. ...


Killer8

After successfully completing the game, a new Start menu will appear. The menu appears almost the same as the previous one except for the new yellow text and the words Killer8. This is not a different game but there is one difference. As the player starts the game a second time, the younger Harman Smith is now accessible as a new player. Also new to this mode is the lethal difficulty mode: nearly every single attack from a Heaven Smile in Killer8 mode is fatal. Nearly every single character, save for Garcian, Mask, and Harman, can die from just one attack. Also, no critical spots show up on Smiles in this mode. The bosses are harder to beat, though the damage of their attacks remain the same. In the battle against Greg Nightmare in Smile (Target 05), the 7th Heaven Smile runs toward younger Harman Smith instead of Garcian, because there are now eight personas and not just seven.


Hopper7

A final mode appears after the completion of Killer8 called Hopper7. In this mode the heaven smiles look like normal people except they wear big grasshopper masks, and all are killed in one hit, as if their entire bodies were a "critical point." All other game play is unchanged, however only the first level is playable.

Trivia

  • The character "Kevin Smith" is not named after the director Kevin Smith, although, like Smith's on-screen character Silent Bob, Kevin never speaks in the game. Suda 51 claims that he had never heard of this director nor seen his movies.
  • There were actually two versions of the Killer7 story - one being the original story from Suda 51, which would cost too much time and money to make into a game, and the other being the shortened version Suda 51 made for the game. The original story was detailed in a Japanese-only supplemental book entitled Hand In Killer7: Kill The Past, Jump Over The Age.
  • Harman and his band of personalities all share the same last name, Smith, making them "the Smiths", as in the 1980s pop group. Killer7's creators acknowledged and furthered the reference by scrawling "How Soon Is Now!" (the title of one of the band's most popular songs) on a wall in the first mission as well as by naming the in-game memos after the band's songs.
  • All of the carrier pigeons have the same names as female characters from the James Bond films.
  • The Killer7 is a customised AMT Hardballer in Capcom's Resident Evil 4, an obvious tie-in to Killer7. Though unrelated to any of the guns used in Killer7, it is remarkably similar visually to KAEDE Smith's gun.
  • In Resident Evil 4, when the 'Handcannon' weapon is equipped, on the menu screen, Leon holds the gun exactly the same way as Dan Smith does in Killer7. The game also features a monster called "Regenerator", which looks similar to a common "Heaven Smile" in Killer7.
  • The TV channel Garcian watches at the beginning of the Cloudman and Alter-Ego episodes, ZaKa TV, is the same channel the player works for in Michigan (one of Grasshopper Manufacture's previous titles).
  • The bellhop who greets Garcian Smith in the Union Hotel during the Smile episode is Edo MacAlister, the hotel manager of Flower, Sun and Rain (another of Grasshopper's previous games).
  • Jack Thompson cited Killer7, among other games, for being responsible for the deterioration of modern society, claiming that 'profanity, sex and bloodshed are commonplace'. This quote was later used on the back of the third comic book for publicity.[2]

Reception

The reviews for the game were very mixed. Review scores have ranged from low 5's from sources like Electronic Gaming Monthly and GamePro, or a 1.5 out of 5 in GamePro's case, to low-to-mid 8's from sources like GameSpot, IGN, and Nintendo Power. Some of the reviews from reviewers like IGN and Gamespot have stated that the Nintendo GameCube version is graphically superior, as well as having far faster loading times, and better control than the PlayStation 2 version, meaning that these sources recommend the Nintendo GameCube version over the PlayStation 2 version. Many fans think that the reason for low scores are that reviewers were not attracted to the game's strange style and gameplay.
