Update your diaries, Europe.

Publisher Rising Star Games has revised the release schedule for Vanillaware's stunning 2D action-RPG Muramasa: The Demon Blade, bumping the game from the previously reported timeframe of "Spring 2010" to "Winter 2009".

Presumably the game's schedule has been moved forward due to the publishing and localisation commitments in North America changing hands from XSEED Games to Ignition Entertainment some months back. If so, that seems to suggest that Rising Star Games' European release will contain the same subtitles-only translation as the North American release. Then again, that's probably for the best.
