The new issue of Japan's Famitsu magazine coming out today brings a bit more news on the PS Vita port of Muramasa: The Demon Blade, the Vanillaware-coded 2D slasher that became a sleeper hit on the Wii three years ago.
The Vita's Muramasa, in addition to featuring everything from the original Wii game, is slated to come with some new downloadable content. Not much was said about the DLC, titled Genroku Kaikitan in Japanese, but Famitsu revealed that it's 100 percent original content not seen on the Wii version.
The new Vita port, originally announced at the Tokyo Game Show last week, is due out March 29, 2013 in Japan.
Vanillaware, the George Kamitani-run independent developer whose games (including Odin Sphere and GrimGrimoire) feature unique, intensely detailed 2D visuals, has been largely quiet as of late. Dragon's Crown, their latest original title, was announced at E3 in 2011 and has proceeded along largely silently since; publishing duties for that title switched from Ignition Entertainment to Atlus in April of this year.
