Gaming Age: "Whether or not you played Muramasa: The Demon Blade, there's a good reason to take it for a spin on the PS Vita. The port at least delivers an astonishing look at what the hardware is capable of in a 2D space, and tempts the thought of its predecessor, Odin Sphere, someday seeing a life on Sony's handheld machine. Muramasa: Rebirth seems to find itself much more at home on the Vita, and can be called an essential title in anyone's collection. It's not without faults, however, as the new localization brings an unwanted focus to the dull story, and the lengthy campaigns can leave the title feeling overall long in the tooth. Despite this, it's more aptly considered Muramasa+; a port that's slightly more recommended than whatever people had to say about the Wii release."
