Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Askiisoft have launched the full version of Katana Zero.
Katana Zero is out now on Windows PC and Mac (via Steam), along with Nintendo Switch.
A samurai assassin with no recollection of his past utilizes his powers to predict the future to perfectly cleave through henchmen to reach his targets in one-hit-kill combat (for both you and them). You play through this “prediction”, slicing up foes and platforming- while avoiding any harm.
The neo-noir action-platformer also utilizes “radical dialog design” allowing you to change the narrative in subtle ways- even interrupting can open up new possibilities. All while your perception of reality begins to crumble away.
In case you missed it, you can find our preview here. You can also expect our upcoming review soon.
You can find the full run-down below:
Katana ZERO is a stylish neo-noir, action-platformer featuring breakneck action and instant-death combat. Slash, dash, and manipulate time to unravel your past in a beautifully brutal acrobatic display.

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.
