Muramasa Inspired Platormer AeternoBlade Shows Off Time Reversal Feature


AeternoBlade, the Nintendo 3DS game inspired partly by Castlevania and partly by Muramasa: The Demon Blade, is coming along, and developer Corecell have released a new trailer that demonstrates the game’s combat and time-reversal mechanic.



In addition to time-reversal, AeternoBlade features a combo unlock system as well as an upgrade system. Freyja, the game’s protagonist, can learn over 40 different moves, which can be incorporated into different kinds of combos with each move that you choose to unlock. You can learn about the game’s combo system here.


In Japan, AeternoBlade will be published for the Nintendo eShop by Arc System Works. The game will also be released in North America and Europe, but Corecell haven’t shared details on who will be publishing the title in the west.
