The announcement provided much information on what to expect. Kathy Rain: Director’s Cut will bring about an improvement to the already good narrative. This will come in the form of additional plotlines, as well as an extended ending. The soundtrack is also getting some love, as a remix plus fresh tunes will serve to liven up the proceedings.
With the motorcycle being a big part of Kathy’s persona, there will also be several unlockable paint jobs to give players some customization options. Game environments are also being enlarged to cater to the larger screens of today. Death sequences are also now a thing. More importantly, Kathy Rain: Director’s Cut will have controller support.
A thrilling journey
While many would have expected a sequel, the existence of Kathy Rain: Director’s Cut still remains a pleasant surprise. While it may be only a few years old, a revamp will definitely expose it to new audiences. If enough interest shown, a sequel could certainly be warranted.
Kathy Rain: Director’s Cut will launch later this year on Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux. If you own the original game, there will also be an upgrade discount waiting for you.
