Gaming Target writes: "Muramasa: The Dragon Blade seems even more impressive stylistically than Odin Sphere. It also has the potential to be an entertaining action-filled romp into ancient Japan. The fact that the game currently ranks high on Japanese sales charts is a good omen in this regard. Similarly, Famitsu gave the game a score of 34/40. Ignition Entertainment recently took up publishing duties and plans to bring Muramasa stateside in September 2009. Until then, anxious gamers may want to dust off their PlayStation 2s and check out Odin Sphere".
