It appears that GameCube title Killer 7, Capcom's split personality action game, will be released worldwide at roughly the same time this summer.

Capcom has previously confirmed a 7th June US launch date, while Capcom's European press website now lists the game for release on 24th June and the game is now set for a "summer" release in Japan.

Originally due out back in late 2003, Killer 7 - produced by Resident Evil and Devil May Cry creator Shinji Mikami and written by dev studio Michigan's Goichi Suda - sees the player taking control of seven unique assassins split from the mind of a wheelchair-bound chap in a suit.

It's also framed very nicely thanks to a stylish cel-shading-without-outlines approach that gives the game a very unusual look.

Apart from the GameCube version, Capcom is also planning a PS2 version at some point, although there's no word just yet on when we can expect to see that emerge.
