Description

Transform your free copy of Super Bernie World into a two-games-in-one edition that includes Kitsune Zero, the prequel story to Kitsune Tails.

Run, jump, and stomp on ghostlike creatures from Japanese folklore lurking in the countryside and castles. Collect powerups that make Yumi grow in size, grant fireball abilities, and make her invincible for a short time. Gather the necessary ingredients to break the pact's magic and take down the leader of the samurai clan to end the war.

Defeat a sinister samurai gang to stop the clan's war of conquest. Hear the cries of the local onmyouji, a wizardly bureaucrat assigned to keep the peace, and end the magical pact the samurai have with vengeful spirits. Only Yumi can break the alliance and restore peace… and maybe get to go on a date for her trouble. Gather the necessary ingredients to stop the dark pact's magic and the leader of the samurai clan once and for all. But beware, you may need to save a damsel, err, a dashing gentleman in distress!

History

Kitsune Zero is a prequel story to Kitsune Tails, intended to create a bridge from Super Bernie World to Kitsune Tails. It is a reskin of Super Bernie World which keeps the original levels but adds new bonus content and a brand new story. It was partly conceived of to give the Super Bernie World speedrunning community a way to run the game at marathons which would otherwise be concerned about the political content of the game, as well as giving speedrunners content for new categories as the main any% run was heavily optimized.

Features

  • Play as a cute fox girl
  • Experience new graphics, and a new story with voice acting
  • Explore twenty four new bonus levels featuring brand new enemies
  • Challenge yourself with the optional hard mode
  • Save your progress and resume playing from any level you've previously reached
  • Enjoy new and remastered music
  • Guaranteed 100% free from American electoral politics
  • Fully backwards compatible with Super Bernie World any% speedruns
