Marvelous has published the latest screens and artwork for the upcoming 2D Vanillaware title for Wii, Muramasa: The Demon Blade.

Muramasa follows a time where there's a conflict of power, and over the powerful Demon Blades - the pair are cursed and are said to bring tragedy, madness and in extreme cases, death. As the chaos ensues, creatures from the pits of the netherworld are summoned and must be stopped.

Wow, this game look quite good for a 2D game. I remember seeing a clip sometime ago, i think on here at that, and it even looks good when played too.

When all is bad don't look for a easy way out. Because you wont know what to do once your out

Love the style and design, looks great. Shame it's taking a while to come to Euroland, but happy it's seeing a worldwide release!

Magnificent! Metal Slug quality ninjas!

November in the U.S, "Spring 2010" for Europe, that means the tail end Smilie

Vanillaware are a very small developer with around 30 or so employees, they don't have the rationalization resources that someone like SE have. If they did, both we and the US would get the game sooner I think.

YES!!! FINALLY A 2D ART GAME!! Looks amazing! Def buy from me!

No, we wouldn't. S-E takes up to 3/4 year to translate and publish games in Europe - and that excludes different European languages in dialogue, only in text - see FF X and later. *g*
But I see your point!


This game is a real beauty! Look at the crisp textures, the wonderful style and the grat artwork! I was so drawn to its predecessor and the girl shows a similar facial expression. I gonna love this game. Truly beautiful!

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

The game looks great in these screenshots, it does look better in motion still. Anyway, i'm glad it wont come to europe next year, because there are quite a few games I want to get that are coming out this year.

It's been different in recent years. The Crystal Chronicles games on DS have all taken just a month or so to get worldwide. Tactics A2 didn't take that long either. Although I guess Crisis Core took ages... But I think S-E are getting better.
