A Burning Muramasa: The Demon Blade Question Answered

By Spencer . April 1, 2009 . 2:15am

Marvelous’ Muramasa: The Demon Blade site has a Q&A with developers Nakamura and Mori answering important questions about their upcoming game. They explain the difference between the game’s two modes, if Muramasa: The Demon Blade will have full voice acting (it does), and how many characters you run into (if you count NPCs over 100). […]

Take Another Look At Muramasa: The Demon Blade

By Spencer . March 31, 2009 . 2:39pm

Most trailers of Muramasa: The Demon Blade focused on action. This clip shows the characters you interact with and then action. In between scenes of Kisuke (blue warrior) and Momohime (princess in pink) cutting through demons there is a glimpse of the weapon building tree which has a total of 108 blades.   Another interesting […]

Little King’s Story Marching Towards Release, Muramasa Cut From 2009

By Spencer . February 16, 2009 . 10:33am

Rising Star Games gave updates on two of Marvelous’ Wii projects. Elusive Little King’s Story must be nearing completion if it’s going to ship in spring 2009 like Rising Star plans. We haven’t heard much about shy Corobo in North America or Japan where the game is being developed so there is a chance Little […]

Muramasa: The Demon Blade Slicing Into Stores Soon

By Spencer . January 16, 2009 . 9:19am

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 Cutting Into Summer Vacation?

By Spencer . December 10, 2008 . 1:45pm

The last time we heard about Muramasa: The Demon Blade was around Tokyo Game Show where XSEED confirmed they were co-publishing it in North America and Rising Star Games mentioned Europe was getting it in November. Fortunately, our wait for Muramasa: The Demon Blade might not be as long Europe’s. Two separate retailers claim the […]

Muramasa: The Demon Blade Slicing Into Europe Next November

By Spencer . October 22, 2008 . 12:32pm

After I played Muramasa: The Demon Blade at TGS I wanted to know when I would continue my adventure past seeing Kisuke standing on a wooden boat rocking in gorgeous 2D waves. Marvelous noted Vanillaware would be done with Muramasa: The Demon Blade sometime next year. Rising Star Games, Marvelous’ European arm, is more specific […]

Muramasa: The Demon Blade Stunning In Stills And Stunning In Motion

By Spencer . October 16, 2008 . 9:00pm

Vanillaware’s first Wii game looked gorgeous when I saw it at Tokyo Game Show last year and I finally got to play it at Tokyo Game Show this year. While Muramasa: The Demon Blade isn’t complete it’s moving along nicely. The demo gave players a chance to select two missions one with Kisuke, the male […]

By Spencer . September 18, 2008 . 9:42pm

Xseed and Marvelous are joining forces to bring Oboro Muramasa Youtouden out in North America under the much more English friendly name Muramasa: The Demon Blade. We haven’t heard much about Muramasa: The Demon Blade since Tokyo Game Show last year and all we saw there was a gorgeous trailer. I can’t wait to see […]
