Legendary game director Suda51 is back with another super-stylish and ultra-violent hack 'n' slasher, Killer Is Dead - Nightmare Edition.

Next month PC gamers will be able to slice and dice like pros, as players take on the role of suave execution Mondo Zappa in yet another ridiculously over-the-top action game courtesy of Grasshopper. There aren't many more genres out there that demand 60fps quite like Suda51's smooth blend of action and grotesque violence. So, without further ado, let's check out the Killer Is Dead - Nightmare Edition system requirements...

Killer Is Dead Minimum System Requirements

There aren't many brand new games with system requirements as low as these are for Killer Is Dead's minimum system requirements. To get the game up and running you're only going to need an ageing rig, sporting a meagre 2 GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. GPU requirements for Killer Is Dead are slightly higher, but there's not much there to worry most people. 

The leap up to the recommended Killer Is Dead system requirements is pretty insane though, asking for a whopping 8GB of memory and some not-inconsiderable CPU requirements. We'd estimate that these recommended requirements will net you the absolute best settings, hopefully at a silky smooth 60 frames per second. While aesthetically stylish, Killer Is Dead doesn't necessarily push graphical boundaries, so the recommended system requirements might be a little on the high side here.
