All the beauty of Odin Sphere with none of the slowdown!

Japanese publishers Marvelous have released a new trailer for the upcoming 2D action-RPG Muramasa: The Demon Blade.

Designed and developed by Vanillaware (Princess Crown, Odin Sphere), Muramasa is set for release in Japan on April 9. North American readers can expect the game sometime late in 2009, with a European release scheduled for April 2010. From the looks of things it'll be well worth the wait.
