A port of Muramasa: The Demon Blade
From master video game developer Vanillaware comes Muramasa Rebirth, an action RPG that blends the vibrant and beautiful world of Japanese mythology and high flying, fast-paced action! Enter a world where demon, samurai and other deadly enemies vie to destroy you as you search for the fabled Demon Blades. Become the possessed princess Momohime, as you travel West, or the fugitive ninja Kisuke, as you travel East, through mythical Japan battling anyone who stands in your way. Forge and collect 108 blades, each with its own devastating secret art, but beware these Demon Blades are hungry for the souls of the vanquished and legend foretells that tragedy befalls those who dare to use them. With stunning high-res graphics, two beautifully told storylines, multi-modes of play and much more, Muramasa Rebirth brings the very best entertainment to the PlayStationVita handheld entertainment system!

All the high and low points are basically untouched, though the better translation sheds some more light on the story, and it's the same just-short-of-perfect game that I would recommend to all people who love beautiful things. It's been just about 10 years since Rebirth's release at the time of this review, so the ball is in Vanillaware and Aksys's court to bust this one out of Vita jail.
I loved the Wii version so much I'm going through it again on Vita just to see the translation differences. Will update this review once I get to the DLC content.
