Vanillaware published an amazing new trailer from Muramasa: The Demon Blade.
If it's anything like Odin Sphere, it will have plot and characterization to match. Officially on the radar. I think my Wii-hate is pretty much burned out at this point. It may not have HD games, but at least it has some interesting titles in the pipeline. If they announce a localization of Arc Rise Fantasia (which they will, probably), I'll purchase a Wii for sure. (In all fairness, I really should have the third member of this generations triumvirate anyhow.)
Seriously they need to start doing more games in this fashion.2D can be gorgeous and this game proves that.Sonic Team you hear me? Arc Rise Fantasia will be localized you watch.
Cannot argue with you at all fellas. Exactly the kind of thing Wii third party devs should be doing(and from the makers of OS you knew it'd be just beautiful)while also giving everyone what the Wii can do REALLY well. Looks really cool. Agree about ARF as well.
This game looks amazing indeed, but sadly it is the only title I'm looking forward to on the Wii.
I'm a little confused by the comments about Arc Rise Fantasia being localized. As far as I'm aware, they've already announced that it's going to be released in North America. Am I misinterpreting what you guys mean by localization?
why on the wii? it doesnt even look like a console game. when i frst saw this i thought it was going to be a psp game, not a wii game. i even see this more as a ds game too, developers make good games but stupid decisions for the games.
Sam, That was one retarded comment. The artistic value comes more to light if they can add more detail to it. Wii is a perfect match. While the Ps3 and 360 are more the image of 3D games in HD. Wii has the Retro feel of it. What they did was taking the old standards and make it into a higher definition. Wii needs more games like this, they are just awesome.
More 2d PLEASE.
2d where it started. We need more.
Looks 10x better than any Ps3 title to date!
haha troll u don't even know there's a title called odin sphere on the ps2.
haha!!!!...yes I do -_- Trust me, I kno alot more about gameing than you'll ever kno
where the hell did this gem come from? didnt know they still made wtfawesome titles like this makes me think of onimusha+powerstone+viewtifulj oe do want !
Oh my god. This is quite possibly (no, it is definitely) the BEST video I have seen of Muramasa yet. So much action, all the cool-ass bosses. Fantasic!
Now that is some NEXT GEN 2D GRAPHICS. Finally, the WII is becoming next gen, with this game...
Odin Sphere was awesome and I see Muramasa easily following suit. Game looks really great and I agree with the lot of you. More 2D!
that was great!
Would have looked even better if the wii supported HD. :(
BWHAAAAAAAAA I CAN'T APPRECIATE FOR WHAT IT IS BWHAAAAAAAAA Ya know i even bet it looked better if they made it for the SuperComputer IBM made with 1.6 million cores. I bet they could just pump out a resolution so big you get cancer from it.
lol good one Sidar Funny though because if this was on a hd console it most likley wouldnt be 2D so in the end like Sidar said appreciate it for what it is......a genre game this gen is lacking,2D.
I think it would have been 2D. But it would be an arcade or PSN game. Its clear developers dont wanna release a 2D game on a Disc...sad actually.
Very impressive looking. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one. On a side note, the male lead looks strikingly familiar to Death Note's L.
"No! I must kill the demons" he shouted. The radio said "No, Murasmasa. You are the demons" And then Muramasa was a zombie.
YES! This was amazing! Videogames truly can be art!
