US: Ignition to publish Muramasa The Demon Blade

Stylised 2D action platformer Muramasa: The Demon Blade will be published by Ignition in North America this September.

Muramasa is developed by Vanillaware, and its unique visuals stem from the fact that the whole thing is hand drawn. It has already been dubbed by many in the specialist press as the best looking Wii title to date.

We continue to maintain our strong commitment to bring quality games to the marketplace,” Ignition Entertainment president Ajay Chadha stated.

We feel deeply honoured for the opportunity to bring Vanillaware’s magnificent masterpiece Muramasa: The Demon Blade to gamers stateside.”

Vanillaware’s game director George Kamitani added: We developed Muramasa: The Demon Blade in the same way as we did Odin Sphere, so there are bound to be a lot of similarities. I want it to be a very fun game for everyone who picks it up.”

Rising Star, the self-proclaimed ‘Home of Japanese Games’, is publishing Muramasa: The Demon Blade in the UK some time later this year.
