Muramasa Rebirth

Vita Muramasa gets picked up by Aksys, Elliot celebrates

5:25 PM on 01.29.2013 // Salvador GRodiles

Get ready for some spectacular good news.

When I first played Muramasa: The Demon Blade on the Wii, I was surprised to see that the story was not on the same level as Odin Sphere. During one faithful podcast (I forgot the episode number), Elliot revealed to us that Ignition's localization for Muramasa was written in a matter that it reduced the impact of the plot that was present in the Japanese version. In fact, Elliot told me that the original story was close to Odin Sphere's quality. 

Today marks a joyous day, because Aksys Games has revealed that they are going to release the Vita version of Muramasa in North America as Muramasa Rebirth. Instead of using Ignition's translation, Aksys is going to give Muramasa Rebirth a new localization. In other words, Elliot can now feel a sense of relief, because the people of North America will get to experience the game under a new translation that will not disappoint players. 

Aksys is not stopping there, since they have plans to bring over the DLC stories that allow you to play as four new characters -- yay. With this last attack, Elliot's sadness has been sealed away in the darkest corners Japan, and a new streak of happiness will shower the entire planet. 

While I still own Ignition's release of Muramasa, I would not mind re-buying the game, since it will grant me the emotions that I missed out on during my first playthrough. Thanks to Aksys, Muramasa has been given the justice that it deserves, and I look forward to its North American release.
