The winner of this speedrunning event gets a real-life RGB katana

As part of a livestream celebrating the second anniversary of Ghostrunner (opens in new tab), 505 Games and One More Level outlined a “Legendary Ghostrunner Challenge” for speedrunners, with the grand prize being a real life, light-up katana based on the one from the game.

505 Games selected 16 players through qualifying rounds for the challenge, with participants competing for the best time with a limited amount of lives. In the final challenge, those 16 gamers will have to clear a brand new level, a dope-looking synthwave temple, as fast as possible with only one life. Those are pretty high stakes for the challenging cyborg ninja platformer.
