Paradise Killer Will Be Putting the Knife Into Playstation and Xbox

Paradise Killer, a detective game which casts you as a mash-up of Wonder Woman and Phoenix Wright, is coming to PlayStation and Xbox.

We reviewed Paradise Killer last year, when it launched on PC and Nintendo Switch, and had a real blast, remarking that “There are very few murder mystery games that give you as much agency as Paradise Killer does.” Sure, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is great, but it’s doesn’t let you deviate from the straight and narrow in the same way that Paradise Killer does.

Now, it’s coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, meaning you’ve got now excuse not to play it. The premise is that your character, Lady Love Dies, has been summoned from exile to solve a murder on Paradise Island, which happens to be inhabited by gods and enslaved mortals. Not sure how well accusing a deity of murder will go down? Maybe it’s time to find out.

The PlayStation 5 incarnation of the game will also sport DualSense support, giving you a night/day light bar, though we’re not sure how useful that’ll actually be. Both the new-gen versions of the game will run at 60 FPS in 4K mode, or thereabouts, so Paradise Island should look especially pretty if you’ve managed to nab one of those machines.

Paradise Killer is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S this March 16th. Or if you really can’t wait, you can pick it up on PC or Nintendo Switch right now.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
