'Katana Kata' (ALL) Comes To Switch, PS4 And Xbox One This Week - Screens & Trailer

Katana Kata is an indie souls-like action game with an innovative fight system where you practice your Katana on the path for endless improvement; again and again.

Katana Kata is a souls-like game, where not only your timing matters, but also directions of strikes.

You will fight your way through a bunch of enemies on different locations to kill the former apprentices of your master and fix his mistakes of the past.

You will die a lot, but as any apprentice learn their way through the kata with mistakes, you will learn your way through every enemy on your path.

You will try different weapons until you find what better suits your fighting style.

Your fighting skills will grow, but true mastery is in your head in knowing your enemies and nuances of fight.

The core of the fight in Katana Kata is in combination of strikes, blocks, parry and dodge - pretty easy to learn, but with a lot of nuances to master, so even after a lot of deaths and repetition every fight can feel different.

This is my katana.
There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My katana is my best friend. It is my life.
I must master it, as I master my life

Without me, my katana is useless.
Without my katana, I am useless.
It always cuts to the truth
I must be faster than my enemy, who is trying to kill me
I must cut his head before he cuts mine
I will.

My katana is my soul
And I trust it more than myself.
Life is better with it than without it.
Death is better with it than without it.

Today we start on endless path to improvement
To become the masters of our enemy.
To become the saviors of life.
So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace!

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Katana Kata is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One on February 26, 2021.
