James is at it again with yet another great interview for Glixel with one of Japan’s top game creators, this time Vanillaware‘s George Kamitani. Reading it, I’m suddenly in the mood to play Dragon’s Crown and Muramasa on my Vita again.
I still think that Sorceress character is embarrassingly ridiculous, but I’m sure having a good time playing this on Vita. I really do love the art style – as I do with all Vanillaware games – and it just feels like the perfect thing to be playing on a portable. I’ve played a couple of hours so far, using the archer, and I’m having a blast playing through the quests, unlocking new sections in the city, and slowly levelling up. Sure, the gameplay amounts to Golden Axe-like, but with more variety in your actions and abilities, and there does seem to be a lot that you can upgrade.
While everyone is playing Vanillaware’s latest, Dragon’s Crown, I’ve just hopped in Muramasa Rebirth on Vita (it’s currently on sale for about $20 on the PSN Store). This game looks absolutely gorgeous on the Vita screen, and I’m having a decent amount of fun with the hack-and-slash gameplay (admittedly not really my favorite kind of thing). I’m of course also looking forward to playing Dragon’s Crown, once the price on it goes down a bit.
