Muramasa: The Demon Blade is once again bound for the Americas. Aksys Games has announced plans to bring the acclaimed action role-player to the PlayStation Vita later this year.
The original title was one of the most spectacular-looking games to come to the Wii, featuring Vanillaware's gorgeous hand-drawn visual style, and it should look even better on the Vita's OLED display. Aside from the visual update, Muramasa Rebirth, as it's called, offers updated controls and four additional DLC campaigns featuring new characters.
No word on an official release date just yet, but if you'e inclined to believe Amazon, you can pencil it in for a June 25, 2013 launch.
