5 Things to Do After Beating Katana ZERO

Katana ZERO is an interesting mind trip that eventually comes to an end. When you beat the samurai themed title you may be wondering what to do next. Here are 5 things to do after beating Katana ZERO. SPOILERS BELOW!

Speedrun the Game

When you complete Katana ZERO for the first time you unlock a couple of new modes. The first mode is a speedrun mode. This mode tests your skill by seeing how fast you can beat the game. Depending on how you do determines what award you receive at the end. To earn gold you need to beat the game in under 29 minutes. The speedrun game mode can be accessed on the main menu. Get running!

Do a Hard Mode Run

Another mode that is unlocked upon completing Katana ZERO is Hard mode. In this mode there are a number of changes to the game including new enemies, new boss mechanics, new level layouts and more. If you want to mix things up a bit, do a Hard mode run. Hard mode can be accessed under speedrun on the game’s main menu.

Fight the Hidden Boss

If you didn’t know, or missed it during your first playthrough, there is a hidden boss in Katana ZERO. This boss is the Psychiatrist. In order to access the fight you need to complete a number of steps during a playthrough. We have a guide detailing the process here. I highly suggest fighting this boss as it is weird and fun encounter.
