Mark of the Ninja Special Edition DLC Hits This Summer
Klei Entertainment has been quietly working on a new DLC for Mark of the Ninja, which it plans to rebrand as the Mark of the Ninja Special Edition.
This “Criterion Collection”-esque version of the game will add a new level set in the early life of the ninja’s tattoo artist, Dosan, which paints the stage for the events to come in the proper game.
In addition to the new level, an all new style of play is being added to the game with a non-lethal takedown ability. This will allow players to take a non-lethal approach through the game.
Also added are two new items, one which is geared towards stealth and concealment and one that favors a more direct course of action. Both items and the new non-lethal play style will be available as a part of the main game and the new level.
Finally, the developer plans to add developer commentary to the main game. Much like Valve’s commentary in Half-Life 2 and Portal 2, the main campaign will feature commentary nodes that players can activate that discuss aspects of the game’s creation and other behind-the-scenes information. The commentary is being localized into different languages.
It’s set for release this Summer on Xbox Live Arcade and Steam.
Beyond Mark of the Ninja, the studio is also working on Don’t Starve for the PC.
