After remastering The Silver Case and its sequel 25 Ward on modern platforms, Grasshopper Manufacture has set its sights on bringing its cult hit Killer7 to Steam.
Announced during a panel discussing the company’s history at this year’s Momocon, the remaster arrives this Fall.
The Steam release won’t be a remake but a graphical refresh. Grasshopper has told Game Informer the game’s simple models and colors scale nicely to modern resolutions. Additionally, mouse-and-keyboard aficionados will be happy to know they’ll be able to use their mouse to aim at the many weakpoints on the Heaven’s Smiles.
The Steam version is a collaboration between Grasshopper and Engine Software. NIS America will publisher the title with Capcom’s blessing. The remaster has not been announced for consoles.

I’m very curious to see what Killer7’s art style looks like in modern resolutions, and to see how mouse controls might work. Hopefully, this port will catch on and let Grasshopper continue remastering its games – Flower, Sun, and Rain and No More Heroes could use some love!
