Product Description

Product Description

A number of cursed blades exist throughout the world. Blades that thirst for blood the moment they’re drawn. Even those blades thought to be holy slowly become corrupted over time as they are used in hatred and drenched in blood. Those who wield these blades slowly become homicidal. The curses laid on these blades are said to condemn those who use them to tragic and untimely deaths. It is in the Genroki era, a period of time in which the shogun Tsumayoshi Tokogawa reigned, that the force of the damned began to emerge, threatening the peace and prosperity that had long existed in the world. The cursed blades became the focus of the greed, self-righteousness, and arrogance of those who’d gain possession of them, and inevitably it was these conflicting desires that led to war. As the flames of chaos and disaster spread, denizens from the netherworld were dragged into the confusion as not only the evil spirits were summoned by the swords, but the Dragon and Demon Gods as well. How will the destinies of those drawn to these cursed blades unfold?

Amazon.com

Story
This adventure unfolds during feudal Japan's Genroku era, a volatile time marked by warring factions and grave civil unrest under the shogun Tsunayoshi Tokugawa. The power-hungry shogun yearns to collect an array of legendary swords, but these blades carry a terrible curse-each one thirsting for blood the moment it's drawn. Those who wield these blades slowly become homicidal, and are destined to a tragic and untimely death.

Two Heroes are thrust into this treacherous climate-Kisuke, a brave young lad who's lost his memory, and Momohime, a lithe female ronin possessed by a dark spirit. They must venture across the dangerous countryside, in a race to collect the swords before the vile shogun can reach them. Watch as the destinies of those drawn to these cursed blades unfolds, as dragon and demon gods from the underworld appear to challenge those who wield them. Who will you encounter? Friend or foe? Find out in Muramasa: The Demon Blade.

Playable Characters
In Muramasa: The Demon Blade players have their choice of two playable characters: the renegade ninja, Kisuke, and the princess turned kunoichi, Momohine. These are their stories.
Playable character Kisuke from 'Muramasa: The Demon Blade' Kisuke
A ninja with no memory and hounded by a dark unknown past, Kisuke inexplicably finds himself a fugitive, chased for a crime he doesn't remember. He only knows that he must find a certain "katana" and that despite his best intentions, battle seems to follow wherever he goes.
Playable character Momohime from 'Muramasa: The Demon Blade' Momohime
Described by her subjects as "beautiful as a flower and pure as snow," Momohime is a princess of Narukami. But when a dark spirit visits her castle Momohime's idyllic life is changed forever. Forced against her will, she leaves behind everything she knows in a quest for the cursed demon swords.

Gameplay
In Muramasa: The Demon Blade players are given the choice to take on the role of either Kisuke or Momohime as they set off in different directions with the goal of collecting as many katana (swords) as possible. Swords are categorized in groupings defined by the weapon's levels of power and agility. Each Katana also is imbued with a specific attack technique that players will utilize in the different, progessively more difficult game modes. Modes include: Unmatched Mode, designed for character leveling; Carnage Mode, an advanced action mode; and Insane Death Mode, which as its name implies is a very advanced mode and is only available to players who have cleared Carnage Mode.

4.0 out of 5 stars A simply gorgeous 2D action RPG game September 8, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
GRAPHICS: Normally, the first thing I focus on in a review is gameplay and then the graphics, but I'm making an exception for Muramasa. Goodness is this game gorgeous. The graphics wowed me from the start. Simply amazing. The entire game is composed of stunning 2D artwork with multiple layers of animated backgrounds. The color palette is amazingly deep and rich and everything animates smoothly. This game is one of the best looking games that I've seen on any of the three current consoles, and that fact is entirely due to the amazing artwork and sense of style that pervades the entire game.

GAMEPLAY: The game is a combat-heavy 2D side-scrolling action RPG title made by the same developers as Odin Sphere, and the gameplay is very similar. For anyone who hasn't played Odin Sphere, the gameplay is somewhat like Castlevania and Metroid meet Smash Brothers and Viewtiful Joe. I kind of imagine this is what Legend of Kage would have played like if Legend of Kage was actually a good game. You play as one of two characters, each of which has their own story and acquires their own special abilities throughout the game. Although the game contains some platforming elements, the focus is on combat and the combat feels excellent. Some areas of the game already have enemies placed upon them, but usually you are ambushed by a number of enemies and then the game slips into combat mode. As you progress throughout the game you will constantly be discovering and forging new weapons, and with each new weapon comes a new combat ability to take advantage of. Weapons are unlocked in a progression tree fashion. I haven't counted all of the weapons in the tree, but my estimate is there are about a hundred or so different swords to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is why we play video games. September 8, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been highly anticipating the release of this game since the first picture came out after TGS a few years ago and I'm speechless, this is the best 3rd party Wii game I have ever played and I doubt I will ever play one better. Vanillaware has created the most beautiful 2D game that I have ever seen, Muramasa is one of those rare gems that only happens once. Everything is hand-drawn, playing this is like playing art. We all know this game looks amazing, so I will focus more on the gameplay with this review.

This is a game for anyone really, the hardcore action fans will enjoy themselves and casual gamers will be able to finish it without too much struggle. Muramasa is a straight ahead 2D sidescroller, you run through the map and take out the enemies as you encounter them. There are secret items to collect and NPCs to speak with. You can initially start with 2 game modes, Muso (normal) and Shura (hard). In Muso mode you can level up and obliterate most enemies without trouble, Shura is more action oriented and it's MUCH harder...but way more fun if you ask me. You can switch between game modes on the fly too, nice. You can select 1 of 2 characters, Kisuke and Momohime. Both play exactly the same but the story and bosses that you encounter are entirely different. You have to equip 3 swords at a time and eventually you can forge your own blades. After you defeat each boss in each character's story you have the ability to forge more blades. In total there are 108, for your first play through you will not be able to forge all of them. After completing the main story with each character, both characters can use all blades, you can then backtrack and finish bonus dungeons to achieve a 100% game. Based on the blades that you equip you will have a different ending, 3 endings for each character.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wii game you've all been waiting for! September 8, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You know that awesome hardcore Wii game you've been waiting for to get your blood pumping like back in the good old days?

The Wii game that provides a level of excitement that you have yet to feel while playing your Nintendo Wii?

Well, my friends, I have discovered that game, and it's name is, "Muramasa: The Demon Blade"

Muramasa: The Demon Blade is a 2D Side Scrolling Action RPG made exclusively for the Nintendo Wii.
And although Muramasa is a 2D game, it has by far the most impressive visuals I've ever seen on Wii! And I've played Fragile & The Conduit!

So much detail is put into every little thing on the screen, and the back grounds are bursting with color!
Muramasa is not just a game, it's a work of art!

The action is fast-paced and exciting, so much so that it made my heart race in a way that it hasn't since the N64 days!
You use the Wiimote & Nunchuk, Classic Controller, or GCN Controller to move your character and pull off dazzling moves with grace, precision, & lightning speed!
No Motion Controls here, just good old-fashioned button pressing.

At first glance, Muramasa would appear to be a Button Masher, but it's actually quite the opposite...
Battles in Muramasa require a lot of strategy & precise timing, you won't get very far if all you do is mash the buttons wildly.

Muramasa has 3 modes in all...
Muso (Easy-Normal)
Shura (Hard)
And Shigurui (Super Hard) *Unlocked by beating the game on Shura, In this mode, you only have 1 HP!

There are 2 Playable characters, Kisuke (Male) & Momohime (Female) each has their own unique story, swords, & bosses!
The game requires multiple playthroughs to view everything, but don't let that turn you off!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty great, but take with caution.
Careful with this one. The combat is exciting and sometimes the exploring is fun. But other times, exploring is literally hold left or right and there's NOTHING to look for. Read more
