Muramasa: The Demon Blade - Wii

New shots have emerged from the forthcoming Vanillaware title Muramasa: The Demon Blade on Wii.

Vanillaware were the team behind the eye-poppingly gorgeous Odin Sphere on PS2, and as you can see, their latest title looks even better.

Odin Sphere didn't quite live up to its wonderful graphics due to some crippling slowdown and slightly repetitive gameplay, but hopes are high that this new title will play as good as it looks.

Set in feudal Japan, and borrowing ideas from Japan's rich collection of myths and legends, players will be able to control the katana-wielding girl Momohime and the ninja boy Kisuke.

Known in Japan as Oboro Muramasa Youtouden, the game will hit store shelves in Japan later this year, while the US will get their hands on it sometime in 2009. Unfortunately, there is still no word of a European release, but fingers crossed.
