I’ve been saving Mark Of The Ninja for the winter months. Dark nights, curtains drawn, the room lit by a candle light that’s been strategically placed in a breeze to create rippled shadows. I might even move to Japan to enhance the experience. I’ve put it off this long, what’s a few more months for an unnecessary and stressful intercontinental move? And to everyone about to say “You should have played it already”, well waiting means I get to play the game with the newly announced DLC in one big pile of 2d stealth fun. This new DLC only adds a new prequel level and two new items to help you play more stealthily, but the biggest addition is my favourite game extras: a commentary track.
Klei Entertainment have recorded insights and japes for every level, including the prequel level, so I’ll be sat there with a chatty development friend talking about all their design decisions. It will be like I have friends! The Special Edition DLC be out on Steam on August 16th for $5. Here’s a trailer.
Ooh, I’ve suddenly remembered Ask A Ninja!
