Muramasa: The Demon Blade: Sharpening The Sword

By Ishaan . September 10, 2009 . 3:09pm

The biggest mistake you can make is to let an enemy find their footing — and give them a chance to block or retaliate in doing so — after you’ve launched them. If I had to make a comparison, I’d say that Muramasa feels like a 2D Devil May Cry.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade: Haze of Action

By Spencer . April 21, 2009 . 12:28pm

I’ve been playing Muramasa: The Demon Blade as “Princess” Momohime. I put “Princess” in quotes because Momohime is more than meets the eye. She is a furious fighter, a good thing because Muramasa: The Demon Blade is action packed.

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 […]

Oboro Muramasa Youtouden (aka that Vanillaware Wii game) lives too

By Spencer . September 2, 2008 . 10:19pm

While there is an influx of hey-that-Wii-game-still-exists news today it’s an opportune time to bring up Oboro Muramasa Youtouden. The gorgeous looking 2D game made an appearance at Tokyo Game Show 2007 – in video form. Marvelous and Vanillaware, the creators of Odin Sphere, haven’t said much about it since . Yasuhiro Wada, President of […]

Mini Screen Gallery – Oboro Muramasa Youtoden

By Spencer . September 25, 2007 . 11:07am

It was quite disappointing that Oboro Muramasa Youtoden was barely seen at Tokyo Game Show. A short trailer ran on Marvelous’ main stage, but besides that Vanillaware’s next project was nearly a no show. These few screenshots and pieces of concept art are all that remains of Oboro Muramasa Youtoden’s TGS appearance. Granted the game […]
