"A few years ago, bringing a slightly upgraded version of a game to another platform was something brand new in the industry but nowadays it is becoming common practice. However rarely does a title feature a complete shift in publisher and translation via this transition. Originally released back in 2009 by Ignition Entertainment on the Wii, Muramasa: The Demon Blade has now been brought to the PlayStation Vita under the name Muramasa Rebirth. Only now, Aksys Games is behind the reigns of the title, the question is though; does this Vita version deserve your attention?"
