Aksys Games is proud to announce that the long-awaited third DLC, A Spirited Seven Nights’ Haunting, for Muramasa Rebirth on the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system releases this month! In this chapter of the “Genroku Legends,” players assume the role of Arashimaru, a ninja who is being hunted by his former clan. Worse yet, while fighting off an attack, he inadvertently desecrates the shrine of a powerful spirit who curses him; giving him only seven days left to live. Will Arashimaru be able to rest in peace, or will he meet his untimely demise?

 

About “A Spirited Seven Nights’ Haunting”

 

A Closet-Full-of-Ninjas Worth of Content – Featuring an all-new story that follows the exploits of Arashimaru, a new fighting style, and new, challenging bosses, A Spirited Seven Nights' Haunting is perfect for those in need of more action-packed Muramasa Rebirth adventures.

Wield New, Deadly Weaponry – Arashimaru’s sickle whips violently around him, causing more than mere flesh wounds to all foes. His speedy kunai can keep up with even most nimble of his enemies, raining down a whirlwind of agony on the unsuspecting. His bombs can cause forceful, concentrated blasts nearby, or they can be thrown, allowing Arashimaru to attack safely from afar. Strangely, he can also summon the power of the snake-like spirit that threatens to kill him, allowing Arashimaru to overwhelm all who oppose him with a flurry of fiery projectiles.

New Challenges Await – Players looking for even more challenges can attempt to defeat all of the original bosses of Muramasa Rebirth as Arashimaru!
