Rising Star Games has announced the visually-stunning 2D side-scrolling action game Muramasa: The Demon Blade for Wii will be released in Europe on November 13.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade is an action game which features two playable characters: Kisuke, a young ninja and Momohime, a princess. Each character takes a different path through the game.

Kisuke is a fugitive being chased for a crime he no longer remembers, mysteriously driven to search for an unknown katana. Momohime, after being possessed by the spirit of the foul swordsman Jinkuro Izuna, is forced to flee her castle and accept a grave mission. Both will cross paths with the demon swordsmith, Muramasa - fight or die: that is his price.

The game features beautiful hand drawn graphics from the creators of Odin-Sphere, blending side-scrolling 2D gameplay with 3D backgrounds featuring the artwork of traditional Japanese culture.
