Muramasa Rebirth confirmed for US release

Aksys Games picks up publishing duties for localised version

Muramasa: The Demon Blade on Vita will be released in US as Muramasa Rebirth.


Aksys Games has picked up publishing duties for the previously-Japan-only Vita game, promising a complete localisation and all the previously-announced DLC including "four additional scenarios" and "different characters".

For those who missed the Wii original, released in the West in late 2009, Muramasa: The Demon Blade is "a highly stylised action adventure starring a colourful cast of more than 100 characters".

It's out in Japan on March 28. Aksys stopped short of confirming a US release date.
