Muramasa Rebirth DLC Coming To U.S. In Early 2014

By Ishaan . October 31, 2013 . 4:30pm

The Muramasa Rebirth DLC that will add four new characters with their own playable stories to the game will be released in North America in early 2014, Aksys Games have announced. The first piece of DLC will be “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata,” which will have you playing as a cat lady.

 

In Fishy Tales of the Nekomata, Okoi is tasked with delivering a prized tea set to the shogun. She and her brother set out on a journey to Tokyo, but Okoi’s family’s chief retainer attempts to take the tea set from them.

 

Okoi will differ from Momohime and Kisuke in that she uses her claws and other special powers to combat enemies. You’ll be able to upgrade these abilities via a skill tree. She can also fuse with her companion Miike to transform into a more powerful form.

 

Fishy Tales of the Nekomata will feature new enemies, but once you’ve completed the chapter, you’ll also be able to take on the bosses from the main Muramasa Rebirth campaign. In case you missed it, you can view a trailer for the upcoming DLC here.

    “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata will feature now enemies”, there’s a typo it should be new enemies.

    Wow I’m glad we had this confirmed! Super excited :D

  • Malon

    Omg I wanted this like forever, I’m so glad it’s coming to Eur… Wait, WHAT?

  • artemisthemp

    Looking forward to hearing when, EU is getting this

  • z_merquise

    The wait will take a while but at least it’s already confirmed for the English version so that’s great news.

    Fishy Tales of the Nekomata will feature new enemies, but once you’ve completed the chapter, you’ll also be able to take on the bosses from the main Muramasa Rebirth campaign.

    So other than the new story exclusive for the DLC character, you can also play them in the main campaign. Sounds like the DLC is totally worth it.

      This. It seems so simple; just let us play new characters in the existing game. You can just butcher out all the story-specific aspects. Why don’t developers get this? *points to Arkham City and teasing you with being able to play the whole thing with the DLC characters*

  • Arcana Wiz

    looking foward playing as the neko neko, she looks cool and her story looks great…..

  • AkiraScare

    AHHHHHH cant wait to play as the Old Cat lady…. Cat Girl (^_^) this will be so awesome i still rmember the wii version…

    I’m having a hard time debating a Vita against bills these days…

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Oh hell yeah! Very happy about this =^_^=

  • Jettythesunfish

    Finally. I bought Rebirth just for this.

  • ZekeFreek

    Other companies rereleases included extra content in the initial release free of additional charge.

    What the fuck do they think makes Muramasa so special?

    • Ferrick

      considering that the deadline for dragon’s crown was on the horizon, i don’t think they would want to do the dlcs first, unless if they want to miss that due date just to satisfy entitled idiots like you

      • ZekeFreek

        Expecting extra content in a re-release is not entitlement.

        That’s just common sense. Doubly so if you already bought the game the first time around.

        • Solomon_Kano

          If I buy a movie on DVD and there’s bonus content on the Blu-Ray re-release should it be free, then?

          Because that’s basically what you just said.

          • ZekeFreek

            Simultaneously BD release? No.

            Re-release of older film on BD? Yes, it should.

            Not that it matters, you’re comparing apples to oranges anyway.

          • Ferrick

            hmm lets see,
            MGS 2,3,PW HD edition, no new content
            KH1.5HDremix, no new content
            DMC HD, no new content
            Silent hill HD, other than a broken game, no new content
            Zone of the enders HD, no new content
            GOW Collection, no new content
            The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection, no new content
            Ōkami HD, other than improved art, no new content

            yeah, because all re-releases should have additional contents right ?

          • ZekeFreek

            More referring to Vita re-releases. Not just HD remasterings, which to me fall under a different category.

            HD Remasters=/=Full-On Re-releases, i.e D3:AoD, or P4G.

          • TheExile285

            Not just HD remasterings, which to me fall under a different category.

            how so?

            *EDITED

          • Solomon_Kano

            I mean, he did say “to me” lol.

          • TheExile285

            Shouldn’t you be playing DC! Away with you! I hate that my lightning edits don’t appear right away

          • Solomon_Kano

            We’re on hiatus.

            You’ll never be quick enough :V

          • TheExile285

            Hiatus until when? :V

          • Solomon_Kano

            Dunno :V

          • TheExile285

            Well I wanna play when you guys start back up!

          • ZekeFreek

            It says right there. “to me”. There’s a different between full-on re-releases with actual effort put into them and what are essentially HD texture packs running at a higher FPS.

          • TheExile285

            And exactly how do you know how much effort was put into said game?

          • ZekeFreek

            By the additional content, duh. Also by modifications/changes made to the base game. There’s a lot of technical differences between D3:AoJ and D3:AoD, for example. Lots of added/changed features.

          • ZekeFreek

            Also, by my own definition, I would count game collections as “additional content”. If they are bundled several old games in a series together, that’s good enough.

          • ZekeFreek

            Okay, all these downvotes have shown me you are all clearly mindless sheep who will shell out all their money for the same stuff over and over again without any additional incentive on the dev’s part.

            Stop sucking cock and have some standards when spending money.

          • Ferrick

            are you retarded ? No, seriously, are you that retarded ?

          • Solomon_Kano

            Both of you though. The insults. Staph.

          • Arcana Wiz

            okay now you’re offending not only those who are disgreeing with you by downvotes, so if i buy this game i’m a sheep who sucks cocks? Oh okay o great Zeke, you’re clearly superior to everyone who bougth this game… so superior that i recommed that you dont try to talk with the fanbase… never again.

          • ZekeFreek

            Note: I did buy the game.

            There’s nothing wrong with buying the game. But please have some standards when it comes to re-releases. Don’t let them take your money with the bare minimum amount of effort with the promise of extra things coming later that you have to pay separately for.

          • Ferrick

            note: no one cares if you have bought the game or not, your salty QQs has gone to the point where even claims like that are not worthy of noting

          • ZekeFreek

            Don’t speak for everyone.

          • Ferrick

            i don’t need to, especially not after you insulted basically everyone who wants to experience the HD remakes on their consoles

          • ZekeFreek

            If you don’t need to, then don’t.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Um… a few things:

            1) Downvotes happen.

            2) You can do without resorting to insulting people who don’t share your “standards.”

            3) Warned.

          • ZekeFreek

            HD texture packs are not hard. Small mod teams do them in their spare time. For a developer, it’s a relative cakewalk.

          • Solomon_Kano

            And yet we still have terrible HD remasters…

            Not all HD remasters are created equal. The work that went into KH HD was not the work that went into Jak and Daxter HD.

          • ZekeFreek

            Clearly, but that is the incompetence/apathy of the developer, which has no impact on the relative difficulty of the process.

          • Ferrick

            silent hill HD collection would like to have a word with you

          • TheExile285

            Holy crap! An upvote from Rusheel! Come back to OT Uncle Rush!!!

          • Arcana Wiz

            well when you have time you can post in the OT, but i aint so active like in the beggining of the year… so probably we wont meet XD

          • Rusheeel

            that’s a shame =<

          • Arcana Wiz

            yeah, college is eating me alive ><

          • Solomon_Kano

            So… like… take this to the OT. Or Twitter :V

          • Arcana Wiz

            sorry, not gonna derail more the topic, just got caught in the moment =D

          • TheExile285

            If anyone dereailed it, it was me it was also intentional :P

            Arc…. get on Twitter more!

          • Rusheeel

            i see, well i guess i shall post in the OT when i have time

          • TheExile285

            GOOD!

    • ChiffonCake

      Vanillaware is a small developer, and they have more to work on than just Muramasa.

      Also, contrary to popular belief, DLC can sometimes be worth the money, which seems to be what they’re going for here.

      • ZekeFreek

        Thanks for being the only reasonable person here, apparently.

  • hadjimurad

    what’s the reason this is only for vita? is it not simple to make available to PSN PS3? i would definitely buy again after the bland ignition release.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Nyahahaha
    Let it come nyao.It looks purrfect

  • TheExile285

    Yay,!

  • Raoni Marques

    Dammit, don’t wanna wait that long! Good thing my gaming backlog is huge right now.

  • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

    Nyanyanya is all I can say about that darling cat girl.

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. Wonder if the girl is a nekomata from the start, or if she becomes one by fusing with that Miike-cat spirit.

    • TheExile285

      From the trailer, it looks like she fuses with the Cat spirit out of revenge.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhtJQiObTv4&feature=player_embedded

      • Göran Isacson

        Aah, I see. Guess we’ll have to see how the story ends for her, if it’s the standard “revenge quest ends with all parties involved destroyed” or if she comes out of it better off.

        • TheExile285

          Definitely doesn’t end well for those two guys at the end of the trailer.

          Scary neko is scary lol

    Finally, my mind can be more at peace
