First part of 'Genroku Legends' out now in North America, next week in Europe.

Muramasa Rebirth

Aksys Games released ‘Fishy Tales of the Nekomata,’ the first downloadable expansion in Muramasa Rebirth‘s ‘Genroku Legends’ series of add-ons, on PlayStation Network in North America today.

The content will go live in Europe next Wednesday, January 22.

Fishy Tales of the Nekomata stars Okoi, a girl possessed by the nekomata Miike and fighting to avenge Miike’s master. Okoi uses mystic demon powers and paws in battle.

Find a full description of Fishy Tales below:

Okoi and her brother are tasked with delivering her family’s prized tea set to the shogun. While on their journey, Okoi’s family’s chief retainer hatches a plan to steal the tea set, killing Okoi’s brother along the way. Swearing to avenge her brother’s death and maintain her family’s honor, she becomes a cat-demon. Suddenly, Okoi’s simple delivery service just got more complicated.

New Fighting System – Unlike Muramasa Rebirth, in “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata” Okoi uses her cat claws and a host of other power weapons to battle her enemies. Learn new skills and new demon arts as you take down anyone who stands in your way.

A New Tail – Set in the world of Muramasa Rebirth, “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata” is a completely new story, with new characters and bosses. Influenced by Japanese mythology, “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata” DLC is a must have for any Muramasa fan. With two endings, “Fishy Tales of the Nekomata” isn’t just your normal, run in the mill DLC – it’s a whole new experience!

Battle Your Favorite Muramasa Bosses – Take a break from the main story and test your skills against any of the bosses from Muramasa Rebirth!

      Oh, was this captured directly from your Vita?

      • Six

        Nah, I found it over on NeoGAF.

        How do you take screenshots, anyway?

        • bloodiOS

          I don’t know, I was planning on asking you that xD

          • Six

            Found it! You press Start and the PS Button at the same time.

            • bloodiOS

              Oh wow, that’s convenient. I wonder if it works on the PS3…

                  • Unretributed

                    So far the only way I know to record or take snapshots on the PS3 is through capture devices and such.

                    • bloodiOS

                      I see, too bad.

                    • Juuu

                      Oh, I thought you could do it from going into the menu [PS button menu thing], scrolling to photos, and then searching for the screenshot button. Or is that Project Diva only?? I’ve done it in that regard for that particular title, at least…No capture card needed.

                    • Kirbysuperstar2

                      Depends on the game. Some support that, like Project Diva and SoulCalibur V, but generally not. Other games like Uncharted 2/3 and Gran Turismo can save screenshots through their own functions, but again that’s fairly rare.

        • z_merquise

          To take screenshots, press the PS button and the Start button at the same time.

          The screenshot will be saved in your Camera application in Vita.

          • Six

            And now I will be taking screenshots every 10 seconds.

  • TheExile285

    Played it for about 30 minutes earlier and it’s really fun. Can’t wait to see how the other DLCs play.

  • Six

    Okay, these I did make.

    Screenshots really don’t do this game justice though. It’s absolutely stunning.

    • bloodiOS

      How’s the flow of combat? Is there any quirk in the system that one should be aware of prior to getting the game?

      • Six

        Any quirks? Not that I’m aware of. Hopefully some one can correct me if I’m wrong.

        When it comes to gameplay, I absolutely adore it. Very fast and fluid. Easily my favorite game on Vita, and I consider it my Game of the Year for 2013.

        Again, if anyone has any differing opinions or comments, hopefully they’ll comment.

  • icecoffemix

    I probably gonna buy this game when they’ve released all DLC. Already played the Wii version and getting all the swords to replay it again without new content.

  • z_merquise

    She play differently compared to Momohime and Kisuke. She also had her own set of skill tree to enhance her stats and abilities.

    I just took some screenshots of the hot spring scene in my Vita. (refresh if no image loaded).

    • new_tradition

      Thanks for the screenshots. I’m liking how the character is more cute than sexy :3

  • MrKappa

    I’m so poor that I can’t afford to pay 5 bucks for this right now.

  • Kurisu Makise

    I’m kicking myself for missing that Muramasa sale from the summer, now the DLC is out and I still don’t have the game yet. Gotta fix this soon.

  • kurosan9712

    Took them long enough, thus justifying me having a japanese version.

  • crimsonidol

    Still one week to wait but one week is better than TBA. :D

  • Raoni Marques

    What?! Damn! better get me some psn credits!

    How much is it??

    • Rodrigo Chueri


  • TheExile285

    The DLC is tons of fun but I warn anyone who hasn’t finished Momohime and Kiskue’s to hold off updating version 1.01 because it mutes battle grunts and some sound effects in Momo and Kisuke’s modes.

    If you finished both, no worries then. The DLC itself plays and sounds fine.

  • PrinceHeir

    need to get back at this game!
