From Press Release:
We’re excited to announce that Mark of the Ninja: Remastered releases on October 9th on PlayStation™, Nintendo Switch™, Xbox One™ and Steam. Now beautifully updated into 4K resolution (on supported hardware) with a full audio remaster, players will be able to enjoy all of the content from this critically acclaimed game and the additional “Special Edition” DLC content in one experience.
The original in-game art was compressed to 720p, despite the source material being originally drawn at a much higher resolution. In the remaster we’ve re-exported everything in high definition up to full 4K resolution.
INCLUDES SPECIAL ADDITION DLC
Adds Dosan’s tale. Play as a young Dosan, get new unique items, an additional story level and unlocked developer commentary nodes throughout the original game.
CHARACTER & BACKGROUND ENHANCEMENTS
Characters have been re-exported from the original vector graphics and all backgrounds have dramatically increased resolution. The remastered visuals allow for never before seen detail and overall reduced banding and other artifacts, even when playing on standard 1080p monitors and devices.
All scenes exported at 4K resolution, polished and most scenes have been reanimated for additional detail.
All new 5.1 surround mix for the entire game. In-game audio uses new high quality compression and the cinematic audio is completely redone to improve both fidelity and quality.

Mark of the Ninja: Remastered will be available for $19.99 USD on PlayStation™, Nintendo Switch™, Xbox One™ and Steam.
