Devolver Digital and Askiisoft's Katana Zero has sold 100,000 copies in its first week on sale. Considering the game is only available on PC and Nintendo Switch, that's pretty good going.

The 2D action platformer was released on April 18th and managed to sell 100,000 copies by April 25th. Developer Askiisoft is understandably pretty stoked by the news. Publisher Devolver Digital also got involved, telling its followers via Twitter that Katana Zero is "our second fastest selling Nintendo Switch game behind Enter the Gungeon". To accompany the announcement of the game's sales milestone, Askiisoft also announced that work on free extras for the game was underway. Katana Zero free DLC will be coming at some point in the future, as well as a speedrun mode.


We're still not sure when we'll be seeing this new content. In a reply to a fan on Twitter, Askiisoft's Justin said he would "do [his] best to get it out this year". Whether the DLC will arrive separately to the speedrun mode or whether they'll be available together is also not clear. We don't actually know what form the Katana Zero DLC will take - whether it'll be new levels, new modes, or something altogether different remains to be seen. Watch this space for more news on Katana Zero DLC and other upcoming content as we get it.

Katana Zero is a fast-paced indie action platformer created by Askiisoft and published by Devolver Digital. The game follows the adventures of The Dragon, a drug-addicted samurai given missions to kill various high-profile targets. So far, so Hotline Miami, but we thought this game did more than enough to mark itself out among its peers.
