DLC announced:

Klei Entertainment has announced that Mark of the Ninja will receive new Special Edition downloadable content on Steam and Xbox Live Arcade this summer. The content will include a new level “set in a flashback to the early life of Dosan (the enlightened tattoo artist) that will set the stage for the events that transpire in Mark of the Ninja.”

Players will also be able to utilize a new nonlethal takedown ability, plus two new items -- “one more geared to stealth and concealment and one a bit more direct.” The game will also receive developer commentary, which will “discuss various aspects of the game's creation, anecdotes, at least two history lessons and other behind the scenes info from nearly everyone on the team.” The commentary will be available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese.

Klei noted that “for anyone who has already played Mark of the Ninja, we're hoping the Special Edition will give them a reason to revisit the game with both new challenges and insights, much as you'd watch the director's commentary of one of your favorite movies.”

No price or release date has been announced for the Special Edition, but players can get their first look at the content at PAX East in Klei’s booth.

Klei Entertainment's excellent 2D stealth game Mark of the Ninja is getting its first bit of DLC with the Special Edition add-on, due 15th August on XBLA and Steam.

For $4.99 / 400 Microsoft Points, this expansion will add one new prequel level, two new items, and a new costume that focuses on items and non-lethal takedowns.

Furthermore, it will add an optional developer's commentary track to every stage, including the new one. Game director Nels Anderson told me "it's a ton of commentary. it's about 25 pages written out from a bunch of different members of the team. Commentary is something I wish more games did, so I'm super excited to get this out there."

We at EG were very fond of Mark of the Ninja. Our Dan Whitehead called it "an embarrassment of riches," in his Mark of the Ninja review. "A game that never rests on its laurels and offers ample replay value, Mark of the Ninja is a much-needed shot in the arm for Live Arcade's lacklustrer summer offering," he concluded.
