Muramasa Rebirth For Vita Will Have A Completely New English Localization


UPDATE: The game will feature a separate “jump” button, unlike the Wii version, which used “up” on the D-Pad or analog stick for jumping.


Following our reveal earlier today, Aksys have officially announced the PlayStation Vita version of Muramasa: The Demon Blade for a U.S. release. In North America, the game will be titled Muramasa Rebirth.


The original version of Muramasa on Wii was published by Ignition Entertainment and was somewhat lacking in its bland localization. Muramasa Rebirth, on the other hand, is getting a completely new localization from Aksys.


Additionally, Aksys have also confirmed that the previously reported paid DLC, which will allow you to play four additional short scenarios with four new characters, will be made available for purchase in North America.


Aksys haven’t announced a release date for Muramasa Rebirth yet.
