Devolver Digital has never backed away from showing off retro styled games that oozed with personality. Whether it’s Hotline Miami, Enter The Gungeon, or Hatoful Boyfriend, Devolver has always published some of the most unique and interesting indie games out there. It was on Wednesday that Devolver showed off the next game called Katana Zero, a side scrolling hack and slash title set in a neo-noir setting.
The art for the game looks fantastic while the synth styled music is a thing of beauty while combat of the game looks reminiscent of an earlier title Hotline Miami where you create your own experience when handling your enemies fate.
Devolver released information for the game:
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.
Exceptional Combat: Overcome your opposition however the situation requires. 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.
Katana ZERO will be coming to console and PC this March.
