Losing Muramasa: the demon blade was a "punishment" for RPG publisher Xseed

Ignition took the rights to publish hot Wii title Muramasa: the Demon Blade from Xseed who was previously the pubilsher.

"They wanted to light a fire under the guy who was in charge of them. Out of all the games we actually have ties with Vanillaware and we were able to get Muramasa. We have a very good relationship with Vanillaware already."

I hope that someone does a deal to publish Fatal Frame 4 in the west-why won't Nintendo do it? If they don't want to and Tecmo can't surely there's something in it for another publisher as the game reviewed well in Japan and the series has a fanbase already.

If Muramasa can manage this when nobody(except the very wise like me!)played OS then FF4 should be easy to find a publisher for, no? With games like this and Fragile now finding western releases it seems odd that Fatal Frame should end up in limbo to me.

Fatal frame IV has some serious bug issues. Nintendo refuses to publish the game with these bugs and Techmo refuses to fix them. This game has no bugs so theres no problem
