Vanillaware may have singlehandedly resurrected our infatuation with sprites back when polygonal graphics were the norm. They were the makers of Odin Sphere and Oboro Muramasa (a.k.a. Muramasa: The Demon Blade), two games that looked more like moving storybooks than anything else. Their high-resolution sprites appeared as if they were painted right onto the screen, and their high-speed action and deep difficulty kept players coming back for more. Now, it looks like they may be doing it all over again with their upcoming Dragon's Crown.
