Remember that bit of DLC Aksys promised us for Muramasa Rebirth? Well, the wait will be over soon as the Playstation Vita remake will soon be receiving a bit of content to help extend the longevity long after the credits roll.
Dubbed the ‘Genroku Legends’, this new bit of content for Muramasa Rebirth aims to give the title new life with four new playable scenarios, each with their own hero. Each of the four heroes are based upon Japanese folklore. At your control are four entirely different playing style, ranging from Gonbe, a farmer with a hoe in hand to Okoi, a nekomata, or catgirl of lore.
The first bit of DLC, titled “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata” will have you fill the role of Okoi, tasked with bringing a prized tea set to the Shogun. Genroku Legends will begin in early 2014, exclusively as downloadable content for Muramasa Rebirth on the Playstation Vita
New Weaponry – Unlike Kisuke or Momohime, who use the powerful demon blades to rain death and destruction down on their enemies, Okoi uses her razor-sharp claws as well as a myriad of special powers to claim victory in battle. And by fusing with her companion Miike (mee-ke), she can transform herself in to a truly formidable foe.
Enhance Okoi’s Abilities – As Okoi primarily uses her claws to attack her foes, the “Forging” mechanic has been replaced by a skill tree that will allow you to improve and strengthen her various abilities.
Meet New Characters and Fight New Bosses – A host of new characters, enemies, and final bosses are present in Okoi’s adventure, as well as her feline compatriot, Miike. The “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata” DLC is chock-full of new foes and evil fiends, all inspired by traditional Japanese folklore!
Go Paw-to-Toe with all of the Bosses – Once players have completed “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata,” they can take on all the boss characters in the main Muramasa Rebirth storylines! Test Okoi’s prowess against the toughest foes in the game!
