If you like pretty things, the good folks over at G4 have posted a video showcasing a fairly hefty chunk of gameplay footage from Vanillaware’s upcoming Wii title, Muramasa: The Demon Blade. It’s a direct feed, so you’ll get a look at what you’d actually be seeing on screen if you were the one playing it. I am not the one playing it, and that makes me sad.
Still, I’ll take what I can get at the moment regarding this beautiful game. The video gives us a closer look at some of the gameplay details and finer points of Muramasa, with commentary from Ignition Entertainment’s Development Director, Shane Bettenhausen.
I’m not sure how I feel about that whole breakable sword mechanic, but I’m willing to put up with a certain amount of abuse from something so gawww-juss. Vanillaware games are kind of like a girlfriend that way. See the lovely in action after the jump.
