===Summary===
+
The plot revolves around Harman Smith and Kun Lan, demi-gods fighting a battle of good versus evil over several centuries. In the game's present, the earthbound incarnation of Harman has taken on the form of a sixty-year-old assassin bound to a wheelchair, tended to by a maid named [[Samantha]]. He is capable of manifesting seven personalities into the real world, each with their own style of killing; the group is collectively known as the killer7. In these manifestations, Harman does not just believe he is someone else; rather, his personae actually take on a unique physical body when called upon. During the course of the game, the player is introduced to other ghostly figures from Harman's past that attempt to help the killer7, including [[Travis Bell]], the first target the group ever assassinated, and [[Iwazaru]], a subservient personality that appears from time to time to give the player hints.

One of the last missions takes the killer7 to [[Coburn Elementary School]] near Seattle, Washington. While exploring the school, the killer7 discover tapes that reveal that the school was a front for the United Nations Party to train young students to become brainwashed assassins for the Japanese government. One such child, Emir Parkreiner, stood out from the others and was mentored by the school's principal, an avatar of Harman Smith. Clues at the school point to a shooting massacre several years earlier at the [[Union Hotel]] in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At the hotel Garcian discovers ''all'' of the killer7 personae were victims of the massacre and were murdered by him. He later learns he murdered his mentor Harman, and experienced a psychological breakdown and attempted suicide by shooting himself in the mouth. Despite his seemingly fatal injuries, he survived the aftermath by fusing himself with the cosmological ''entity'', Harman Smith, and became Garcian Smith, the ''killer7''. Garcian realizes he is actually Emir Parkreiner, and ceases to exist as a persona. Emir then screams in despaired denial at the painful revelation and opens his suitcase in horror to reveal the weapons of the killer7 personas.

One such child, Emir Parkreiner, was mentored by principal Harman Smith and stood out from the others, but his fate is unknown. Clues at the school point to a shooting massacre several years earlier at the [[Hotel Union]] in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At the hotel Garcian discovers that all of the killer7 personae were victims of the massacre, all killed by Emir, except for Garcian: Garcian's persona is actually that of Emir, who committed suicide after realising that he had shot his mentor, Harman. Emir reincarnated as Harman, Garcian, and the killer7 personalities, but had forgotten his past. He screams in despaired denial at the painful revelation.
   
Three years later, Emir has fully awakened as the "Bloody Heartland" and freed himself from Harman and Kun Lan's control. He arrives at [[Battleship Island]] near Japan, via the [[transcontinental expressways]] between the United States and Asia. Intending to put an end to Heaven Smile and ease tensions between Japan and the US, he meets with [[Kenjiro Matsuoka]], leader of the majority United Nations Party, who gives him a choice: keep Matsuoka alive, which will allow him to rally Japan underneath him for an assault on the United States and result in Japanese worldwide takeover, or kill him, which will lead to the United States discovering that their elections have been rigged by Japan and the destruction of the foreign power, cycling into the establishment of an American world-state. Regardless of the choice the player makes, Garcian discovers the [[Last Shot Smile]] in the door Mastuoka was sitting in front of, and gives chase. He kills the Last Heaven Smile only to discover that it is Kun Lan himself, in Iwazaru's body, ending the threat of the Heaven Smile forever.

In an interview conducted by Rising Star Games, director SUDA51 told viewers, "I'm really happy to hear every time I come to London that the fans want to hear about a sequel to ''killer7''. This is a title that made Grasshopper a worldwide name so it is very important to us. In the future we're interested in making a similar game, but there are no definite plans yet."<ref>[http://www.siliconera.com/2010/03/22/suda51-interested-in-making-a-game-similar-to-killer7/]</ref>

==Leak==
 
In late 2016, a download was found on a small server somewhere on the internet. This download contained the ''killer7'' source code, and was found to have been uploaded earlier that year. This code included several unused files such as models, rooms, textures and script files, many of which consisted of content used in trailers. However, the game could not be compiled for hacking purposes because some files were missing.
 
 
Although the original download links are gone, the leak has been preserved and can be downloaded [https://mega.nz/#!NXBxiAbJ!MGGPmHLtKs9yJVyl7Qd6GcGit3fcMZATG2LtVrvMnaU HERE]. It is still largely undocumented.
