Muramasa: Rebirth is set to have four side stories arrive in the form of DLC, and they all seem to be pretty meaty diversions. America just got its first, The Fishy Tales of Nekomata, and the second has just dropped in Japan, titled Uprising of the Oone Resistance.
We previously caught a trailer for the DLC, but now, Siliconera has some more details on how it plays out. First off you'll play as Gonbei, a simple farmer (gonbei means "country folk" in Japanese), the hardest worker in his village. After the death of his wife, he speaks to her in the form of her ghost, who will help him attack enemies during the DLC (creepy).
He'll fight with a sickle, bamboo spear, and a hoe, and he has the opportunity to summon the "village idiot" and the "village strongman" in combat. Just like the first DLC Gonbei will have a skill tree as well as a boss rush mode, and multiple endings.
If it's anything like the first DLC, I'm in. Expect a review once it hits North America.
