Muramasa: The Demon Blade Gets New Publisher, Release Date

Muramasa: The Demon Blade Gets New Publisher, Release Date

This morning XSEED announced it would no longer be publishing Muramasa: The Demon Blade in the U.S. I was a bit worried we’d never see it released here, maybe Vanillaware thought it was too hardcore for the U.S. Wii audience…which would suck because not only does the game look amazing, but I’d have a reason to play a game on the Wii again.

G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra Website

Ok, her name is Zarana, luckily she’s in the top 5 G.I. JOE babes list (why?):

Zarana’s look was a straddle between punk, new wave and lesbian chic, which is a lot to handle when you’re a kid. But her character’s “filecard” (the cardboard piece attached to the plastic casing holding the figurine) depicted Zarana in a low cut shirt displaying a hefty chest and cleavage which made it the raciest file card, by far.
