    @3 I’m hoping Rising Star or Zen make quick work of getting it over here. I honestly can’t wait. I adore scrolling beat-em-ups.

    The asking price seems a bit high if you ask me.

    I agree with Zinc. Should be half of that.

    I will prolly get the rerelease of DD and wait for a price drop on this.

    Muramasa Rebirth! That’s the game I confused it with! Muramasa Rebirth only comes out for the Vita. It all makes sense now!

    I still wish this was on 3 ‘plains’ like Guardian Heroes…

    I find the combat system much deeper and more satisfying when you effectively have a 2D plain with scrolling up / down disabled.

    I know you can say that’s a different genre, but I find the jump to HD has actually damaged scrolling beat em ups. The artwork looks amazing but it has become much harder to line up attacks, Castle Crashers being a prime example that springs to mind, and it ends up looking like cardboard cut outs.

    I hope this manages to get the balance right, 16 bit sprites were far easier to smash around! :)

    I don’t know, 50 for the ps3 and vita title seems fair. 40 for ps3 or vita seems like a reasonable release as well.

    I’m going to get it since it was one of the reasons I wanted a Vita in the first place.

    You are prolly right Lex, but I am a cheap bastard. More so as I get older.

    yea yea yea. this game is perfect for a handheld. will get vita version. pricing for ps3 version is a bit off imho. i don´t get why the ps3 versions are more expensive. isn´t it the same game? should be the same price.

    so glad the ps vita isn’t region locked like the 3DS.

    Since it got brought up, I might as well say that I’m really annoyed that Muramasa is only on Vita.
