I’m still solid on the fact that Muramasa: The Demon Blade is a beautiful game, but after my hands on time with it at E3, I wonder if it can match its looks with interesting gameplay. I will admit I found the action itself slightly repetitive in the short demo, but it’s really hard to say until you get the game in your living room. We shall see.
At any rate, Ignition released a new Swordplay trailer, which you can watch after the jump. A friend of mine who imported the game described it “lots of beautiful running in one direction for six to eight hours”. Of course, any game is really a series of doing the same things over and over, it’s just a matter of whether you have fun doing it or not. Considering the game is due out in early August, we ought to know just how much fun it really is soon enough.
