Muramasa: The Demon Blade Slicing Into Stores Soon

murama Possibly sooner than expected. Marvelous covertly announced Japan will dice up Oni in Muramasa: The Demon Blade this April. Not bad timing for a game that went silent months after it was announced at Tokyo Game Show 2007.


No news about a firm date for the rest of the world, but we are getting Muramasa: The Demon Blade. Perhaps in the wishy-washy summer placeholder held by a number of retailers isn’t too far off. I hope so since Muramasa: The Demon Blade was a blast to play at Tokyo Game Show 2008.

    Thats good to hear my nintendo wii just came in mail a few days ago.
    I wonder if the controls on this game will be good…

  • lostinblue

    @ Eddie – it only uses classic controller control schemes so far, motion is not implemented and if it’ll be there it’ll be optional since it supports both basic and gamecube controllers.

    I hope this plays more like a straight up side-scroller than Odin Sphere. They should make more anime games w/ amazing 2-D graphics like this.

  • looks more amazing every time I see it.

  • lostinblue

    Aoshi00 like castlevania? :P

  • Aoshi00

    @lostinblue – why not, huge fan, Order of Ecclesia hard as heck though.

  • lostinblue

    ^ that’s my point, I’d love to see a home console Castlevania, in 2D and moving like this…

    Miles and bounds better over 3D for that franchise!

  • Aoshi00

    Definitely, PSX sprites from SotN was jaw-dropping, so is this and Odin Sphere, I keep imagining all the good looking anime games they can make w/ this kind of graphics.

    This one looks good though, I hope it would be fun to play. The other game I’m looking forward to is of course Trace Memory, looks like Hotel Dusk on the Wii.

  • lostinblue

    I loved the original trace memory, I’m really happy to see ashley back :3

    Hotel Dusk Wii would rock though.
