Muramasa Rebirth expanded with two new modes

Survive super hard mode and enter the Den of Thieves.

Marvelous AQL is planning two new game modes for Muramasa Rebirth

The first is a “super hard mode” called “Shigurui” (let’s call it “Death Wish Mode”), which can be selected from the main menu once either Momohime’s or Kisuke’s story mode has been completed. After starting a new game, the option to choose Shigurui mode will be available. Shigurui mode is described as extremely difficult, as eating or drinking anything means instant death.

The second addition concerns “Makutsu” (“Den of Thieves”). In order to challenge the various Dens of Thieves dotted all over the world map, their seals must be broken by using the “Youtou” blades the player acquires throughout the game. Inside said dens, formidable foes, themed after their respective den, are lurking.

Each Den has a recommended level. Before challenging each, the game compares the player’s current level with the recommended one and asks whether the player wishes to proceed. One den, called “Ninja Arts 100 Shadow Clones,” literally challenges the player with 100 Ninja opponents. It is not possible to exit the Den unless all opponents are annihilated or the player is defeated.

Furthermore, it is possible to fast travel to each nation’s small shrine after the game has been cleared once with either character. Clearing all dens is the best way to complete the player’s Youtou and tools collection.
