New Muramasa arrange album mentions 'unreleased story' photo



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.

What some may also find interesting, however, is that the album's VGMdb entry claims that "new music from the 'Unreleased Story'" will also be included, citing this page as the source for this information.  While this may simply be referring to music that was written by the team "inspired by" the game, perhaps it has something to do with the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 versions of the game that were rumored to be in the works but never materialized?  

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."

What do yo make of this "unreleased story" business, and are you surprised that the team is putting together a Muramasa arrangement album two years after the game's release in North America?
