Watch A New Muramasa: The Demon Blade Trailer

By Spencer . February 6, 2009 . 8:36am


Muramasa: The Demon Blade comes out in April which means its time for Marvelous to start promoting it. They just released this brand new clip (thanks for the tip Ishaan!!) which shows more areas than the hands-on Tokyo Game Show demo.


See the part where Momohime slices creatures while waves rise in the background? That’s where the demo ended. I don’t recall the demo having giant spiders or millipedes either so most of this video isn’t recycled from old trailers. Be sure to watch it in high definition so you can see how gorgeous Muramasa: The Demon Blade looks.

    So, so beautiful. I hope XSEED keeps the Japanese boxart when they bring it over. It looks gorgeous.

    Vanillaware… marry me! XSeed I want your children. Oh, and I want this game…

  • I quickly skimmed through your previous articles, but I can’t seem to find a precise description of the controls. Does this support the Classic Controller?

    • lostinblue

      yup, supports all control schemes (including classic controller and gamecube controller, I believe). *might* have some motion sensing for wiimote users in the final version but they said such was not implemented right now and if they ever did it would be towards the end of development.

    • Muramasa supports the classic controller I’m sure of that.

  • Amazing visuals and the combat looks really fun. This is a must buy for me.

    My god, so freaking sweet, a ninja game w/ strong Jpn flavor has never looked so beautiful, the waves like the Ukiyo-e. To think that I alrdy got a kick out of Legends of Kage 2 on the DS. Wow.. probably the best looking game of ’09.

    I’d be all over this it this is just a straight action game, Odin Sphere’s gameplay wasn’t really for me even it looked beautiful too. Drool…

    BTW, does this support co-op? Looks like it from the screenshot.

    • Wha? Which screenshot?

      • Aoshi00

        I was referring to the octopus tentacle one above. On the left it says “one”, on the right it looks like a 2nd player could join, but I think I was mistaken. I thought one meant player one, it’s probably the no. of lives remaining, and on the right it’s probably the display for inventory and magic.. man, co-op would be pretty awesome.

        • Yea, it would have been great to see co-op. That’s the only thing the game is missing…at least, we think it is.

  • Just caught this on GAF —

    Looks like they plan to keep the Japanese boxart. :)
