Starting with 'Fishy Tales of the Nekomata.'

Muramasa Rebirth‘a ‘Genroku Legends’ downloadable content will launch in North America early next year starting with ‘Fishy Tales of the Nekomata,’ Aksys Games has announced.

Here are some details about ‘Fishy Tales of the Nekomata’:

Tasked with taking a prized tea set to the shogun, Okoi and her brother set out on a journey to Edo. However, Okoi’s family’s chief retainer will stop at nothing to retake the tea set from Okoi. What once was a simple courier service mission just got a lot more dangerous!

And a list of key features:

  • 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  • Enhance Okoi’s Abilities - As Okoi primarily uses her claws to attack her foes, the “Forging” mechanic has been replaced by a skill tree that will allow you to improve and strengthen her various abilities.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!

A trailer was released in Japan today. Watch it below.
