    “Redesigned for the PlayStation®Vita system, Muramasa includes a complete relocalization in English”

    That means that the game will have English voices, it will keep the japaneses voices like the Wii version?

    Senshu: Relocalization means the text will be relocalized (translated and edited) by our own staff.

    Signed up just to say this:

    Thank you so much, Aksys, for picking this up. Honestly, it was the only – single, non-plural – Wii game I ever loved, and I’m giddy at the thought of enjoying it on the Vita.

    Is this going to be sold as a physical product or PSN download only?

    Thank you so much for bringing this over. If there is going to be a preorder bonus (Amazon says there will be, but I don’t know if they’re accurate) or some other bonus, do you have plans to make that available from your store for people that purchase the PSN version of the game?

    @Akselziys: Great! It looks like XSEED, Atlus, and Aksys are the Vita’s mighty triumvirate. Who says it has no good games?
