Harvest Muramasa’s second DLC next week ⊟

Muramasa Rebirth’s second DLC episode sounds weird and unexpected, even for a series whose last episode was about a cat monster lady! 

The latest episode in the supernatural samurai game is about… a farmer’s rebellion against a corrupt governer! You play as Gonbe, who uses his farming tools to fight. Don’t worry, he also has the ghost of his dead wife helping him.

The DLC comes out 2/25 in North America and 2/26 in Europe. And now, Japanese history/literature experts, I ask for your help! Do this tale and the arcade game Ikki reference the same historical source, or is this itself a reference to Ikki? My Japanese farmers’ rebellion game is pretty weak.

Muramasa Rebirth cat DLC coming to North America in early 2014 ⊟ 
Confirmed! Aksys Games issued a press release with details of the “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata” DLC, coming out for the Vita’s Muramasa Rebirth.

Tasked with taking a prized tea set to the shogun, Okoi and her brother set out on a journey to Edo. However, Okoi’s family’s chief retainer will stop at nothing to retake the tea set from Okoi. What once was a simple courier service mission just got a lot more dangerous!

Okoi uses claws to attack, and can summon her cat Miike. She uses a skill tree to upgrade her claws, instead of forging new blades. And completing her DLC unlocks a boss rush featuring the bosses from the main game.

Muramasa Rebirth’s DLC (downloadable cat) ⊟

The first of Muramasa Rebirth’s four planned DLC episodes stars a bakeneko named Okoi who fights with claws, and can just straight up transform into a cat. Man, forget all that possessed samurai nonsense, I’m playing as a cat as soon as possible.

Real talk, I had no idea the DLC was going to be this great. It comes out in Japan November 7; there’s no US date yet.

No one’s announced a U.S. release for this PS Vita port yet as far as I know, but you can still grab the Wii edition for like twenty simoleons.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade for PS Vita. If you’re wondering how it compares to the Wii original, here:

It looked great as a Wii game, and now it looks great as a Vita game. The new version will be supported by new DLC, featuring four stories of four new characters.

Someone actually got that NSFW/bootytastic fanart of Momohime (from Muramasa: The Demon Blade) and her Yakuza-style tattoos inked on their arm. This is crazy.

Amazon (well, technically, Hubbagames via Amazon, but I think it’s okay) is selling one of last year’s best games, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, for just $15.41.

In case you somehow declined to pick this up after I spent a whole year obsessing over it, now your hesitation has paid dividends in the form of savings. This is way, way cheap for such a beautiful and exciting game. If Hubbagames runs out, you can also get it from Play-Asia for $24.90. Still cheap!

Alter’s Momohime figure, photographed by Colette Bennett of Tomopop. This is just one of a series of really nice photos of the far-too-expensive figure of Muramasa’s heroine. I appreciate both the photography and the chance to look at one of these in detail without dropping insane money.
