The highly anticipated DLC for Katana Zero is coming soon, but just not yet.
Katana Zero is a platform game developed by indie creator Justin Stander. The story follows Subject Zero, an assassin who is suffering from amnesia. Subject Zero wields a katana, can slow down time, and predict the future.
Stander started working on the project in 2013, taking inspiration from films like Sin City and John Wick. Katana Zero was published by Devolver Digital on macOS, Nintendo Switch, and Windows. Later on, the game was ported to Xbox One.
Katana Zero received praise from critics and players alike, who consider it one of the best games of 2019. The game has sold over 500,000 copies and is expected to release a DLC soon.
Katana Zero DLC release date
In 2019, Stander shared his plans for a DLC drop that would fix and resolve plot issues, introduce new mechanics and new stories, and improve the overall experience.
According to Stander, he wanted the DLC to be on par with the base game. The project keeps expanding and is now described by the developer as Katana 1.5. The DLC doesn’t have a release date yet, but it is confirmed that it will be free.
Will there be more games in the Katana Zero universe?
Stander plans to continue working on the Katana Zero beyond the upcoming DLC. The developer also confirmed that he has plans for future games within the same universe.
“It’s all been very meticulously planned. The thing is, I didn’t want to cut any of the really good ideas I had. Katana Zero is essentially a big build-up for everything that’s going to happen later on,” Stander said in an interview with Industry Biz.
There isn’t a set release date for any of the projects. It might take a while, considering that Stander is still working mostly by himself on the projects.
