Those who appreciate the wonderful-if-slightly-repetitive beat-em-up RPG Odin Sphere will be pleased to know that developer Vanillaware released footage of their new RPG with the working title “Oboro Muramasa Youtoden” for the Nintendo Wii. From the looks of it, it’s yet another beat-em-up RPG, only it’s set in Ancient Japan entrenched with a heap of Japanese folklore. Vanillaware’s trademark “big 2D sprites meant for showing off” is apparent: just look at the size of the spider and one-eyed dude at 1:17. So far, there’s no release date set, so don’t expect to play this anytime soon. I say that with the deepest of regrets.
Since people love salivating over pictures of games they’ve yet to play, here’s a couple courtesy of [Siliconera.]
