Rising Star Games has announced that the latest game from Vanillaware (who made Odin Sphere), Muramasa: The Demon Blade, will be published for Europe in 2009. The new Wii exclusive game is actually renamed from it's Japanese title, Oboro Muramasa Youtouden but that doesn't matter. What does matter is that the visual style is similar to Odin Sphere, which looked brilliant on the PS2. The game puts you in the (silent) shoes of a ninja in the Genroku era of Japan. The game will feature 2D levels that run horizontally as well as vertically.
