    The DLC is tons of fun but I warn anyone who hasn’t finished Momohime and Kiskue’s to hold off updating version 1.01 because it mutes battle grunts and some sound effects in Momo and Kisuke’s modes.

    If you finished both, no worries then. The DLC itself plays and sounds fine.

    • Rafael Budzinski

      …what? This mute stuff is a bug, right? I updated in order to play the DLC, but I’ve already 100%’d the game with both characters, so, their game’ll be “muted”? o.o

      • TheExile285

        Yes, its a bug because even Muramasa’s sound effects are muted. The DLC is not affected by this.

        • Rafael Budzinski

          …got it. Just hope they’ll be fast to solve this, so.

        • Rol

          The DLC IS affected by the fact that they did not subtitle when the main character Okoi cooks food or eats at a restaurant. Hopefully this will also be addressed in the patch.

          • TheExile285

            That sounds like a slip up on Aksys rather than a bug.

            Does she actually say anything? Whenever I go to a restaurant it just sounds like shes moaning as she eats. >_>

          • Rol

            It depends on what she eats. If she hates it or is wary of the food, she definitely says something about it…

    • kureno

      I ordered the physical copy and was planing to finish it before I get the DLC.
      When you speak of update do you mean the DLC or a patch?
      Should I not download any updates that livearea show’s my when inserting the physical copy?

      • TheExile285

        Talking about the patch. The only one that has been released is the one that came out yesterday. Make sure you don’t have automatic updates switched on in the settings menu and don’t download the update from livearea and you’ll be fine.

        • kureno

          Thank you very much for for the information =)

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      Does the DLC include trophies~?

      • TheExile285

        6 Hidden Trophies

        • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

          Awesome, I was curious about that. Thanks for clearing that out~.

    • Ric Vazquez

      Damn, this happened to me, I hope Aksys fix this quick

      • TheExile285

        I emailed Akysy about about and people seem to be talking about it on their twitter and forums. Its still probably gonna take 2 weeks at the least because of how PSN updates are.

        • Ric Vazquez

          Good to know, thanks.

    • MaximDualBlade

      Was it worth it for you? Explain your answer please. Did you play the dlc in Fury Mode? how many bosses does the dlc have?

      • TheExile285

        I like it so far but I haven’t finished it yet so I can’t answer any of those questions.

        • MaximDualBlade

          ok thanks. I hope they fix the patch bug

    • Ping92

      Aw man that sucks. I have not yet gotten kisuke’s last ending.

      On the other hand, the nekomata dlc has been really fun so far, looking forward to the other 3 DLCs

    • Hinataharem

      Are you serious?? Dang I already updated….

      *cries deeply*

      • TheExile285

        Well…. At least the DLC is really fun (IMO at least)

        • Hinataharem

          Yeah I guess that makes up for it. Thanks anyway

    • chava

      damn you have to play as both characters? What if im stuck in the last level of Momohime and haven’t started Kisuke’s story. Will i be able to use the dlc without finishing those? … I have attempted Momohime’s last boss a dozen times and its just impossible for me too much going on I always end up frustrated :/

      Edit: never mind I just saw the article where it says you dont have to beat the story xD

    • Guest

      Was the text messed up for you or anyone else as well? Especially in the menu and the training-tree, but most obviously in the credits. Aksys really messed that one up, it seems… I hope the fix will be released soon.

  • Christopher Nunes

    Funny I was looking at the DLC for Muramasa Rebirth today and I wondering when the first DLC for the US version will be released… and today the announced it! XD

    Can’t wait to grab it! How much do you think it’s going to cost?

    • TheExile285

      $4.99 in NA.

      • Christopher Nunes

        Not too shabby.

        Thanks.

    • Luis Es.

      It’s worth the money! And it was announced and released yesterday.

  • buddyluv324

    MINOR SPOILER ALERT: As to what to look forward to on the DLC, lets just say one of the boss characters gives a new meaning to the word, “Tea-Bagging”.

    • ZnTxn

      Considering she uses CLAWS, I’m cringing in pain.

    • golden izanagi

      I honestly was hoping that what he was attacking the nekomata with was not what I thought it was but then I beat the boss and yeah still speechless from that.

      • buddyluv324

        Lol! I know right? >D I said to myself after that boss fight, “Did I just get tea bagged by a fucking raccoon?!” Most bizarre boss fight ever! I’m still waiting on sites like Kotaku, Giant Bomb, and Polygon get up on their white high horses and try to pill their SJW tricks bitching over how a Japanese mythical creature has gotten them butthurt because of the size of his genitals.

        • golden izanagi

          I’m surprised you haven’t mentioned his minons you know the ones who have flashlights coming out of their asses.

          • buddyluv324

            Ah you must be talking about the yokai, Shirime. Yeah I figured people knew about those already since Kotaku tried their usual click-baiting tactics on it trying to pull a “Dragon’s Crown” on it

    • MisterFoxInc

      The spoiler is the only thing “minor” about this, though…

  • brostar

    They really should have included at least one of these stories in the standalone version of Rebirth. Hopefully when all the DLC is out they’ll do a bundle thing on PSN for those who haven’t bought it yet.

    • buddyluv324

      From what Ive read somewhere in a website, Vanillaware said something about them having reached their limit on the budget for Muramasa that they were unable to add the extra stories for the original Wii version. Im assuming they wanted to make up the cost for the extra characters on the Vita version by making them paid DLC. It would be nice if they were already added in the re-release, but at least they didnt pull a Capcom having them as locked DLC.

      • Lucky Dan

        At least Vanilla ware knows DLC means “Download Loadable content” unlike Capcom’s version “Disc Locked Content

      • brostar

        I get that but they could have at least added something new to Rebirth because all it was, was the Wii version on vita.

  • sharpshot909

    I’m trying to expand my Vita library, so can someone please tell me if this game is good?

  • MaximDualBlade

    Anyone who uses the European store, the game is on a discount right now at 12,49 euros and for psplus 11,49. Also the game is not a big file so it shouldn’t be a problem for those with small memory cards.

  • Ping92

    GET LOST, I’M ALREADY RICH !

  • Go2hell66

    Damm im like $1 short XD

  • KuroNathan

    For reference sake on length, it took me 6 hours to beat the game on chaos mode from start to finish. This includes all the boss restarts and the learning curve of a completely new character.

    After you beat the story it unlocks fury mode (1 hp legend mode) and removes the map restrictions allowing you to explore the rest of the world and fight all the bosses from the main story.

    Apparently there’s a second ending you can get after beating all the main story bosses.

    • Lucky Dan

      I think you have to do the caves as well.

      • Landale

        Caves are not required. You simply have to kill off all of the bosses from the main game, cave versions of those bosses do not count, which will give you an item and specifically tell you to equip it when going back to Miike’s final boss. The alternate ending is odd to say the least.

        • Lucky Dan

          Not like the first ending was odd enough…

          • Landale

            The first ending makes sense, and ties it in to the main game’s story. The alternate end is just a big case of screwing with your head, followed by sudden cuteness just because.

    Wow, this came much faster than I expected! I thought they would release all 4 DLCs in Japan first before starting to release any in NA or Europe. A pleasant surprise.

  • Adam Zaorski

    So sweet.

  • Virevolte

    Okay, okay… I already beat the game on Wii but if you’re gonna make awesome DLC, I just need to buy it again.
