We've just spoken to Rising Star Games's Yen Hau, who's confirmed that the firm's upcoming release of Muramasa: The Demon Blade has been pushed back by a week to launch next Friday, November 27th.

Considering this week sees the European launch of New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Lego Indiana Jones 2 - among other high-profile, non-Nintendo releases - it makes sense to release the game a week later and avoid getting lost in the crowd.

If you want to know more about Muramasa, check out some of our world-beating coverage - artwork, videos and an exclusive interview with Yen Hau in this month's podcast. It'll certainly make that extra week's wait seem a little shorter.
