Klei Entertainment has announced a Special Edition DLC for Mark of the Ninja.

It will be made available for download on Steam and Xbox Live Arcade, and inlcudes a new level which flashbacks to Dosan’s early life. It is basically a precursor to the events which transpired in the core game.

Here’s a set of features:

  • A new style of play, which includes a nonlethal takedown ability, and provides a hybrid of lethal and nonlethal approaches to the game.
  • Two new items, one more geared to stealth and concealment and one a bit more direct. Both the items and the new play style will be available in the main game as well as the new level.
  • Finally, we’ve added a ton of developer commentary to the main game. All the original levels will feature a number of commentary nodes that 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.
  • Developer commentary has been fully localized for English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Japanese.

The Special Edition will be available this summer.
