Under årets GDC snakket vi med prosjektleder hos Askiisoft, Justin Stander, om hva det er som skiller Katana Zero fra resten. Stander sa at det er en "neo-noir action platformer. It's very, very fast paced, everyone dies in one hit - you, the enemies, everybody. It focuses on tight, fast acrobatic combat. You can slash bullets in mid-air, kill people with them. You can slow down time, you can wall jump. You can do everything that you really want to."
Angående inspirasjonskilder sier han følgende:
"The '80s obviously. There's crazy neon lights everywhere, a bumping synth-bop soundtrack, gotta love that. And also Samurai movies, you know, Seventh Samurai, just the sort of eastern culture, I mean the whole story is basically about that, but we're not really delving into story right now."
