There are certain games that we'd love to see on the 3DS purely because playing them on a handheld system is enticing enough. Then there are games that will surely benefit from the extra punch that the 3D effect will provide – and Muramasa: The Demon Blade could be of them.
When Siliconera spoke to Tomio Kanazawa, group manager at Marvelous Entertainment, talking points included the idea of bringing the side-scrolling samurai action game over to the 3DS:
That’s a pretty good idea! That is one of the many things we think our fans want, and we want to provide to them... We at Marvelous Entertainment want to continue to meet and exceed the expectations from our fans as we continue to bring them new experiences.
As fans of the game, we certainly think that would be an excellent title to add the 3DS line-up, and you only have to read our Muramasa: The Demon Blade review to see why. This is by no means an official announcement, but it does show the company's commitment to meet fans' expectations.
Aside from the up-in-the-air possibilities, the publisher did confirm that it is currently working on "several" 3DS titles, two of which are the zoo life game Animal Resort and a new Harvest Moon title.
