New vid of Muramasa Rebirth as pretty as expected

Sweet Vanillaware

A new gameplay video for the Vita port of Muramasa: The Demon Blade has cropped up on the interwebs and … yep. That’s Muramasa. Note the beautiful sprite designs and animation, as well as the torrent of flashing blades. Quality stuff there.

The original remains one of my personal favorite games released for the Wii, despite its many faults, and I’m thrilled that it’s getting a second go. I can’t think of a single good reason to think that this game would help to sell Vita units, but I sure hope the people who already have one will give this game a chance when it releases later this year.
