Taking place in a world inspired by the ancient mythologies and time honored lore of martial arts Muramasa Rebirth is a Role Playing Game and tells the story of two spirited souls and 108 deadly blades. Muramasa Rebirth is the sequel to Murasama: The Demon Blade and is presented stunningly in high resolution 2D graphics which burst into life when displayed on the PlayStation Vita system for which it was specially re-designed.
The two playable characters Momohime and Kisuke who in some respects are opposites but who share a common goal. Momohime is a Princess possessed by an evil demon spirit, while Kisuke is a Ninja without any memories of his past. They are both in search of the demon blades spoken of in legend. One hundred and eight in number, these blades each have their own particularly deadly uses in combat.
The game offers two distinct modes of play inasmuch as you can approach your combats in a 'hack and slash' manner or use a more controlled and skilled approach carefully choosing to use your chosen character's ability and skills set.
There is also downloadable content available which adds four more playable characters and settings playing new roles in fresh storylines and with new enemies to conquer.
Another useful feature is the ability to customize the system's control buttons to suit individual preferences.
