Muramasa: The Demon Blade Loses American Publisher

One of the best-looking titles to ever see the light of day on Nintendo's waggle-filled console, Muramasa, has hit the proverbial brick wall. XSEED, the company that was supposed to publish the title in the US, has suddenly announced that they will no longer be doing just that.

You can read the press release below, but this person thinks that by the time you get done reading it, someone would have already picked up the phone and called Marvelous for the publishing rights:

XSEED Games confirms that it is no longer involved with the North American release of Muramasa: The Demon Blade. XSEED Games and Marvelous had previously announced the game as part of the initial line up between the two publishing partners. We firmly believe in the product and will look forward to seeing it release in North America. We enjoy and respect our relationship with Marvelous, and are committed to working together to deliver an amazing line up of games in the US including the highly anticipated Little King's Story, the epic RPG Arc Rise Fantasia and Suda51's intriguing mystery adventure Flower, Sun, Rain.
