Muramasa Rebirth not only has the upper hand over Muramasa: The Demon Blade on the Wii visually, thanks to the OLED screen on the PlayStation Vita, but it also sports a finer translation. This time around the translation was handled by Aksys Games for the Vita while Ignition was responsible for the original. Down below are a few photos  of Muramasa Rebirth’s new translation that were snapped at a recent event.

Rich Mitch!

With a fresh translation, beautiful graphics, and added content, it looks like Muramasa Rebirth is everything you could ever hope for in terms of a remake. Be sure to look out for Rebirth when it releases this summer.
