Muramasa Rebirth’s DLC Nekomata Coming On November 7 [Update]

By Spencer . October 29, 2013 . 2:03am

image Marvelous AQL and Vanillaware made four new characters for Muramasa Rebirth, but none of them are in the game yet. Additional characters like a Nekomata, ninja, an oni, and a farmer inspired by producer Yoshifumi Hashimoto’s work on Harvest Moon will be released as downloadable content. This was announced alongside the Vita version and it’s almost ready.


Famitsu reports the downloadable Muramasa Rebirth episodes will be available in Japan on November 7. Aksys confirmed they will release the Muramasa Rebirth DLC episodes in North America.


Update: We have the scan now and only the first DLC, the Nekomata episode, will be available on November 7. There are four episodes total, which will be released separately.

    about time, i honestly thought they forgot about it.

    • TheExile285

      I was beginning to think they canceled it

  • Hamaro

    Glory be, finally man. I too thought we would never get the DLC, time to buy me some JPN PSN cards.

  • Billy Kostyra

    finally !!!

  • safeto20scroll

    I hope they will go forward with bringing the DLCs to EU PSN ( ; _;)

    • TrueDefault

      Exactly. I haven’t bought the game yet because getting US DLCs for my EU account-tied Vita is too troublesome.

  • TheExile285


    Hopefully NA and EU get it soon

    • lol ya I have been waiting like a monk for this DLC. Muramasa Rebirth is one of the game I love the most in the Ps Vita. Aksys confirmed they will release the Muramasa Rebirth DLC episodes in North America.

      • Magicks

        Now the only question is when. :3 Looking forward to it.

    • Ric Vazquez

      Agreed, I’m hyped for this.

  • Seven of The Scions

    What i really want is….Momohime DLC as playable character in Dragon’s Crown.

  • Go2hell66

    whew just when i was starting to get worried

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Wow. I almost forgot about this….

  • leingod

    So each character comes with its own chapter? Nice.

  • Wow, that’s late.
    The game was released in like, March in Japan? That’s almost 9 months in between! I wonder how many people in Japan even care about it at this point…
    Oh well, very glad it’s happening though.

  • Raoni Marques

    Wow, about damn time!

  • Monterossa

    For those who doesn’t own the game yet, Play-Asia is offering a $27 sale this week.

  • Arcana Wiz

    Better late than never, but it sure took time…I was beggining to worry hout it…I want my Neko!

  • Ramengeddon

    Does this mean i can hope for new characters in Dragon’s Crown as well? :D

    • TheExile285

      probably not. this DLC was announced when the game was. unless I missed it, Vanilla never mentioned anything about DLC for Dragons Crown barring the voice pack

      • Brimfyre

        Not to give false hope, but they also said Cross Play wouldn’t be possible, so who knows.

        Still, probably best to expect nothing.

    • easter

      Jeez, I haven’t even tried out the Wizard yet, there’s a lot of characters to play and master.

      Personally, I’d like more stages. It should be less work than designing/balancing/animating whole new classes, and if Dragon’s Crown could use anything, it’s more stages.

      Perhaps one set in an icy environment, because they already covered most of the typical fantasy-setting bases. /shrug

      • Brimfyre

        And a sewer level would be radical!

  • Lucky Dan

    Thought everyone who bought the collection was being left out to dry ;_;


  • Abyan Haidar

    this… just passed my mind few minutes ago…

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Now bring Odin Sphere characters over to Dragon’s Crown, so I can see Gwendolyn again…

    • AkuLord3

      That would be pretty sweet

      • Skeptika Crediblus

        Right? They already have the sprites, actions and everything.

        Playing as Odin would also be acceptable.

    • Ric Vazquez

      That or make a Vita port.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Crap, forgot about this when I deleted the game. Guess I’ll be spending a week of on-off downloading this again. XD

  • z_merquise

    It’s been a while. I guess we’ll expect screenshots and (hopefully) gameplay trailers in the next dew days.



  • easter

    Any guesses on the NA pricing for this? I spent about $20 on the base game during the Japanese Developers PSN sale. Would be nice if I could get the full package for about what people paid upon release (~$40).

  • KyoyaHibari

    About DAAAAAAAAAAAMN time. -______-

    • Kamakuma

      You have no idea how much this comment made my day coming from Kyoya. XD

  • 栗場 江理久

    nyahaha~ I get to play with nekomata and fight vixens for mah man >:3

  • Göran Isacson

    Man, Vannilaware. They make their sweet time doing their thing, but at least they do deliver… eventually.
