It was quite disappointing that Oboro Muramasa Youtoden was barely seen at Tokyo Game Show. A short trailer ran on Marvelous’ main stage, but besides that Vanillaware’s next project was nearly a no show. These few screenshots and pieces of concept art are all that remains of Oboro Muramasa Youtoden’s TGS appearance. Granted the game looks beautiful, but I’m much more interested in how it plays.

    I just hope Vanillaware will resist the temptation to search for the dumbest and most tiring using of the Wiimote in an action game.
    If they can tweak Odin Sphere structure a bit to make it a bit less repetitive and item-based it would be great, too.

    @ Briareos Kerensky – I’ve read on IGN that they’re using various control schemes:

    “Players will be able to actually select the type of control. One mode of play promises simple, speedy action. The other, designed for game fanatics, promises extreme action and precise controls.”

    the question of course is how it’s executed, but still, more choices is best, I hope.

    One good thing about it… it (probably) won’t have the Odin Sphere’s slowdowns and hopefully it’ll have faster loadings (and I hope they’re hidden loadings). For those two things addressed I’d buy Odin Sphere again; and yeah… variety.

    I saw this at TGS and could have sworn it was on a monitor and below it was a PSP playing the same thing. So, I thought this was a PSP release. Then, I looked at the flyer I picked up and apparently its a Wii release. Vauxhall something part 2 is for PSP but does anyone know or remember if this will come to PSP also?

    I will get it for Wii if I have to but prefer play it on psp. thanks.

    I just want this to be more of a action filled side scroller than Odin Sphere. This game just looks too sweet.

    @ TT – it won’t come to PSP, and probably couldn’t come as is… PS2 is more powerful than PSP and still Odin Sphere had tons of slowdown, the kind of 2D they’re pulling is simply too intensive to the point of pushing that specific platform (that or lack of optimization).

    But even so, it’s being done for the ground for the Wii and with the Wiimote in mind, exclusively.

    I agree that a portable Odin Sphere would be neat though.

    @Pedro Silva: thanks for the info! I will just get it for Wii then. I must have been hallucinating at the TGS.
