Trailers: Loco Roco 2 and Patapon 2

You've waited patiently enough! Here are the trailers for Patapon 2 and Loco Roco 2 from Tokyo Game Show 2008. This should bring a smile to your face!

There are actually 2 trailers for Patapon 2 but I've only embedded one. You can watch the other one here (slight spoilers for Patapon!).

Some more information on Patapon 2. It will (according to Joystiq) have double the levels, almost triple the items and it will include a multiplayer mode which can be done either using ad-hoc or using the PSP's game sharing feature! So you only need to own one copy of the game!

Muramasa: The Demon Blade slashes it's way to Europe

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.

A gameplay video taken from the Tokyo Game Show floor has been embedded below. Have a look!
