IGN reports that XSeed is not going to publish the fantastic looking 2D action-adventure in North America. Muramasa: The Demon Blade is a promising Wii title that was released in Japan last month and was supposed to be on its way to the states, but thanks to this…its release date is up in the air.
Hit the jump to see what XSeed had to say about the announcement.
“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.”
IGN is speculating that more news about another publisher will be on the way soon. Let’s hope so because Muramasa was looking to be one of the biggest titles on the Wii this year.
