Muramasa: The Demon Blade unfolds during feudal Japan's Genroku era, a volatile time marked by warring factions and grave civil unrest under the reign of the evil Shogun Tsunayoshi Tokugawa. Play as two heroes thrust into this treacherous climate as they venture across the dangerous countryside in a race to collect an array of legendary cursed swords before the vile Shogun can reach them. Who will you encounter? Friend of foe?
Controller Map Overlap
Muramasa: The Demon Blade is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes. If a physical controller is set to emulate both a GameCube Controller and a Wii Remote concurrently, it will operate both devices at the same time. To fix, migrate controls to use separate physical controllers.
PAL50 Boot Crash
The PAL version of this game may fail to boot in 50Hz mode when not using a European Wii NAND. As a workaround you can enable PAL60, which will boot regardless.
Sometimes image tiles seem to be rendered 1px off, leaving small gaps or improperly drawn tile edges. This occurs even with 1x Internal Resolution and Anisotropic Filtering / Anti-aliasing off. Refer . This is due to various texture interpolation issues and may happen on a real Wii. This may not occur with PAL releases.
