Oboro Muramasa to be localised as Muramasa Rebirth

Tuesday, 29th January 2013 23:31 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The new Muramasa game is heading west courtesy of Aksys Games.

Gematsu reports Aksys has confirmed a US release for the Vita title.

Muramasa Oboro, or Muramasa Rebirth as it is now titled is an enhanced re-release of Wii classic Muramasa: The Demon Blade. The Vita version has HD graphics, new controls, DLC, and will be re-localised rather than utilising Ignition’s 2009 translation.

The Vanillaware production has two stories and will include weapon crafting, with a maximum inventory of 108 unique blades.

No release date as yet; Oboro arrives in Japan in March. See it in action.

    I loved Odin’s Sphere so much, but when this came out for Wii, I didn’t have a Wii, and later when I had a Wii, there were so many other games. But I will definately get it for the Vita. This is exactly the game I want to play on my Vita.^^

    I will join the recomendations for this game, on wii the game was great, now the thing is how they will handle the port, i hope it doesnt turn like the little king story one, which has a lot of issues that hampered the gameplay, now i will say wait for the reviews, not to see the score per se, just to check if there is porting issues that affects the game, like i said great game that deserves a great port, vita owners dont let it pass.
