Katana ZERO, from developer Askiisoft and publisher Devolver Digital, released earlier this week to positive reviews from critics and players alike. Billed as a neo-noir action platformer, players come for the fast-paced combat but get a good helping of story on the side. Katana Zero is available on Nintendo Switch and PC. Check out the new launch trailer above and pick up a copy ($14.99) through your favorite digital retailer (Nintendo Switch Store, Steam, GOG, and Humble Store).
Key features include:
- Exceptional Combat: In insta-kill combat, you must overcome your opposition in any way possible. Slow time to execute acrobatic attacks with deadly pinpoint accuracy. Deflect gunfire back at foes, dodge oncoming attacks, and manipulate enemies and environments with traps and explosives. Leave no survivors.
- Hand-Crafted Sequences: Each level is uniquely designed for countless methods of completion. Defeat foes creatively, using spontaneous approaches to eliminate your enemy as you see fit.
- Unconventional Storytelling: An enigmatic story told through cinematic sequences woven into the gameplay, twisting and folding to an unexpected conclusion.
