They released the game early today at Nintendo World in New York City.
By the way, how is Muramasa?
Yessir! I took my Aunt and Uncle who are visiting from Florida to the Museums in NY, and wanted to check Nintendo World out since I only got to stop in briefly during a trip last year. I got a hold of both Scribblenauts and the new Mario & Luigi over there. I was so pissed I didn't bring my DS for the train ride back. I brought my PSP not expecting to get 2 kick ass DS games early.
Muramasa is unsurprisingly a visual feast for the eyes, but the gameplay is a bit ho-hum in my opinion. The stages are set up in a similar fashion to Odin Sphere, which I personally didn't care for, and the combat feels fine, but really lacks any sort of depth or variety. That said though, the game is easy worth the $50 simply for the incredible art direction alone, which I believe blows Odin Sphere considerably out of the water.
