Saucesome new Muramasa screens … you’ll need to give your monitor a wipe

I am a helpless fan of sidescrolling action games, so it’s hardly surprising that Muramasa: The Demon Blade has quickly become the first Wii game I’ve had that “DO WANT” feeling about in a long time. Not only is it a member of one of my favorite genres, it looks absolutely stunning.

Just take a look at these three beautiful screenshots and try to tell me that this is not something that looks good. The premise is suitably old school, while the artistry is simply sublime. 

I’ll stop being an excitable little twit and let you take a look for yourselves but … yeah. I really will do unspeakable things to lambs and ducklings in order to play this.
