July 3rd, 1998: The day when all international disputes were resolved. This day marked the beginning of true peace for the entire world, for people of all races.
In the following years, all nuclear weapons were decommissioned in what would later be known as the “Missile Shows”. Air transportation and network stations were shut down in order to fully eradicate terrorism as a concept. However, in just a few years, terrorism was reborn. The “smiling faces”, religious suicide bombers, began attacking governmental institutions, seemingly with the only objective of causing terror .
The only ones who can stand up to the Heaven Smile terror threat are the team of omniscent and almost God-like assassins , the Killer7.

This happens to be the only strategy guide for a Grasshopper Manufacture game to be released in the west. It includes some very basic character and enemy blurbs, at times including some incorrect information, possibly as a result of mistranslations. The most interesting inclusion, in my opinion, is a Q&A with director Suda Goichi which clarifies some of the more obscure points of the game’s storyline.
