Developer of Odin Sphere working on 2D ninja game for the Wii

I don’t know about you, but, honestly, I’m already sold. Amazing developer? Check. 2D? Double check. On the Wii? AMAZING! Ninjas? *head explodes*

Vanillaware, a company that is to sprite-based graphics as Pixar is to computer animation, has announced some early details on a brand new 2D side-scrolling action game for the Wii.

Tentatively titled Oboro Muramasa Youtouden (loose translation: Chad is so Happy), the game takes place in feudal Japan as players fight samurai warriors and celestial Gods at a variety of different locales (ancient temples, grasslands, cities, etc.). In addition, the game will feature two playable characters: Momohime, a young girl who wields a katana, and Kisuke, a ninja boy with a case of amnesia.

Please come to America, beautiful videogame. Pretty please?
