Vanillaware published some stunning screenshots and artwork from Muramasa: The Demon Blade. Check them out.
It's pretty phenomenal how they've animated everything - especially the backgrounds. And the slow-down that I noticed in earlier builds (and in Odin Sphere), seems to be gone now. Day one purchase. This and Arc Rise Fantasia. Marvelous Interactive is turning into a decent little JRPG publisher/ producer.
Game looks amazing. Day one buy for me.
Agreed. I'll eat my hat if this wasn't made by the same dev team--or even the same engine--as Odin Sphere. Wish I had a Wii for it.
This game is just ridiculous in its art.I would rather have games that look like this then in 3D...i mean look how beautiful that is.
I totally agree. The art direction of this game is so amazingly beautiful.
Yes this game does look very good I do enjoy the art direction
AAAAND this is why i love 2D over 3D. Cause it can become this awesome. Wished devs would do more 2D as full retail games. Its in my eyes really worth it.
agreed i have no clue why more 2d games of this calibre are not being made for atleast the Wii. Imagine a new Contra like this or any other beloved old school franchise that has yet to be made in years. Imagine a new platforming Mario like this,no New Super Mario Bros doesnt count,although a great game.
..I thought the controls could have been a little tighter. This game looks rediculously good. This game and Madworld are the only games I've looked forward to on the Wii in years, sadly.
No TvsC or monster hunter all from capcom? Your not curious about conduit? Hmmmm There is more coming believe me! Once motion+ comes out you will see a lot more games appearing out of no where. Every one is saying nothing right now and announcing as soon as they have product.
I didn't know they were bringing anything out anytime soon? I don't do FPS, so the conduit is a no-no. I haven't bought a Wii game since Zack and Wiki and I liked that game. Being a triple console owner, I always seem to leave my Wii in the corner collecting dust. So many games on the other 2 systems. With that being said though, Madworld looks very awesome and so does Muramasa. Games that are graphically not clones of Gamecube games.
they get to indulge in this beautiful work of art.
Product don't say such things like classic Contra, that game was so dope! Getting me hyped just thinking about that happening. @Scissor Yeah, I don't have any inside scoup, but just looking at things from a logical business perspective WM+ seems like an attempt to pick up the stranded passengers that got left behind during the first arrival. In other words, third parties do not want to miss out on the Wii money tree a second time in a row, not when the financial climate is in the state its in.
reminds me of the intro to Onimusha 2. http://www.youtube.com/watc... You have to wait till after all the villagers get killed first though, then the pretty art comes.
I love how creative Vanillaware is with thier titles. They're quickly becoming some of teh best developers in the biz; since their games are not only beautiful, but play fantastic as well. I think Muramasa: Demon Blade will be the game to beat for Wii game of the year.
This game like Odin Sphere has a very striking art style. I wonder if the control is better than Odin Sphere's though. The slowdown in that game was terrible and cost me many boss fights because of it.
