Katana Zero looks fantastic and has fun fast paced combat, unfortunately the combat is broken up with a confusing and convoluted story. It was all over too quickly, but for people who want more, a dialogue system provides replayability.

Worth your time

A great package that combines gorgeous graphics and sounds with very well-thought-out gameplay mechanics, while managing to differentiate itself from the insta-death genre staples.

For all its hurried stabbing and spilled blood, Katana Zero is a beautiful game, from the juicy text boxes onwards.

Overall Katana Zero is not only a great action platformer but also a game with a solid story that will leave you wanting more. Well worth buying to get that fix for your time bending katana wielding noir story needs. Katana Zero is available on Steam for $14.99 USD.

Katana Zero is a mesmerizing title. The narrative twists and turns in odd ways, and the payoff is both open and satisfying. The action is crisp if you can commit everything to memory well enough to create small, bloody masterpieces. With a familiar yet attractive presentation, Kata Zero feels right at home on the indie-loving machine that is the Nintendo Switch.

Katana Zero looked fun to me when I first saw it announced and I thought it might end up being a fairly shallow experience but I'm glad to be entirely wrong. This game pulled me in for hours at a time with its world and story and I can't recommend it enough if action platformers are your thing.

If you're in the market for a fast paced, action packed platformer then Katana Zero should be on your list. The gameplay is awesome, the music is great and I really like the art style! I highly recommend checking it out.

Weighing in at over five hours, it's not the longest game you'll ever play, but it's wide open for replayability, and the story is great.

Katana ZERO is an outstanding, though unfinished, samurai slasher.

Katana ZERO flings you into a challenging playground with intense battles and tricky time control skills. The story is a bit plain but still acceptable.
