We know what you're thinking. "Silly Nintendo Life editor," you scoff. "The 3DS eShop's upcoming swordfighting game is called Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword, not Samurai Sword Destiny." You roll your eyes and tut, forgetting we're the most knowledgeable people in the world when it comes to downloadable games on Nintendo formats.

Well OK, so we missed the announcement of Samurai Sword Destiny, but at least know it's coming to North America on 5th January 2012 for $5.99.

It's a pretty straightforward-looking scrolling hack and slash — it might not be Muramasa: The Demon Blade, but hey, what is?
