Mark of the Ninja: Remastered, which was announced several months ago by Klei Entertainment, now has a release date. And it’s very soon. Coming to the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One, the Nintendo Switch, and the PC, Mark of the Ninja: Remastered launches on October 9, 2018.
Klei Entertainment has a list of key features for the game:
True Stealth Experience – Player-centric gameplay rewards choice, be it finishing the game without killing anyone or assassinating all who stand in your way.
Enhanced Visuals – The original in-game art was compressed to 720p, despite the source material being originally drawn at a much higher resolution. In the remaster we’ve re-exported everything in high definition up to full 4K resolution on supported hardware.
Includes Special Edition DLC – Adds Dosan’s tale. Play as a young Dosan, get new unique items, an additional story level and unlocked developer commentary nodes throughout the original game.
Character and Background Enhancements – Characters have been re-exported from the original vector graphics and all backgrounds have dramatically increased resolution. The remastered visuals allow for never before seen detail and overall reduced banding and other artifacts, even when playing on standard 1080p monitors and devices.
Remastered Cinematics – All scenes exported at 4K resolution, polished and most scenes have been reanimated for additional detail.
5.1 Surround Sound – All new 5.1 surround mix for the entire game. In-game audio uses new high quality compression and the cinematic audio is completely redone to improve both fidelity and quality.
New Game Plus – Finish the game and unlock this mode, offering new challenges and rewards.
