Yes, it's been almost two years to the day that Muramasa: The Demon Blade was released on the Wii. Despite the game's lackluster sales numbers, it's apparently still on the minds of the audio team at Basiscape who were responsible for the game's impressive Japanese-flavored soundtrack. The studio, headed by Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XII, Valkyria Chronicles) will be arranging several pieces from the game, and as an added bonus, a live recording from the Press Start 2010 orchestral game music concert in Japan will also be included.
Demetri Potiris, Basiscape's international coordinator, dodged our questions about the "unreleased story," but had this to say about the album: "The game was released a while ago, and while it was a modest hit in terms of sales, it has definitely achieved a it's own following, and is critically acclaimed as one of the best games on Wii. Although we may not see another Muramasa game for a while, we hope everyone can continue the legacy and journey through this new music. We're also honored that Mr. Vanillaware himself, George Kamitani, created the cover illustration just for this album."
