Ignition Snags Muramasa Publishing Rights
That was a bit unexpected.

When XSEED Games confirmed that they no longer had the publishing rights to Vanillaware's Muramasa: The Demon Blade for Wii, there was quite a bit of speculation about which big-name company had picked up the rights. It's not Square Enix or Atlus that's picked up the title, but the recent publisher of Lux-Pain and Blue Dragon Plus, Ignition Entertainment.

"Ignition Entertainment is immensely proud for the opportunity to bring Muramasa: The Demon Blade to the legions of North American gamers yearning for top-quality, original action games on Wii," said Shane Bettenhausen, New Business Development Director of Ignition Entertainment. "The talented developers at Vanillaware have crafted an absolutely stunning adventure through feudal Japan that balances subtle, sophisticated artistry with razor-sharp, addictive gameplay."

The Action-RPG plays similarly to Vanillaware's PS2 Action-RPG Odin Sphere, and supports players' use of the Wii Remote with Nunchuk, the Classic Controller, or a GameCube controller. Muramasa: The Demon Blade is slated for a September release.
