*UPDATE*Long live 2-D……(see this beautiful game in motion)
Damn this is one beautiful looking game! Literally art in motion!
Oboro Muramasa Youtouden is the latest from developer Vanillaware(of Odin Sphere fame). And as you can see from the scans, this is one beautiful looking 2d game! In todays 3d world, most consider the genre to be dead, but with support on the DS front as well as games like this, I think it will be awhile before the format is completely gone. Not much is known so far about the game, but all that is gathered is that the main hero Kisuke is on a typical quest to piece together his memory. The game plays like your standard 2d action title with the inclusion of Wii-mote jestures to cast ninpo or magic attacks. We’ll keep you posted as more develops!
