The overall amount of noteworthy games on the PlayStation Vita has just increased by one based on an announcement made today. Joining the rather slim software offerings of the Vita this year is Muramasa Rebirth, the follow-up to the exceptional Muramasa: The Demon Blade.
Known for it’s stellar art design and portrayal of petite female protagonists whose busts are bigger than their waistline, Muramasa will be providing it’s blend of action and RPG gameplay to the Vita audience.
Set to arrive at some point, hopefully this year, Muramasa Rebirth will feature the same stylish hand drawn visuals the franchise is known for along with features that take advantage of the PlayStation Vita. Opting not to go all Senran Kagura creepy on us, Muramasa Rebirth will offer “enhanced” controls, likely touch screen swiping action, on top of the existing dual narrative and weapons galore experience that’s provided.
Muramasa may not be a household name by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s nice to see that the Vita is getting some love in North America with the release of Rebirth. Perhaps it’ll arrive too late to make an impact amongst those who have already pushed the Vita aside in their minds, I think those who dig anime style games will show up to support the game and hopefully enjoy the title for what it is.
A release date for Muramasa Rebirth hasn’t been announced, but hopefully it won’t go the Dragon’s Crown route and fall off the face of the Earth after being announced.
