Like the fan of Muramasa I'am, I buy the Amitabha Collector's Edition and I'll share with you the impresions I have about the whole bundle.
First of all, let me apologise for the quality of some pics, the only good camera I have is my cellphone, isn't bad but still.
The package is very standard, just a box with everything inside.

Now lets see what is inside.

The game obviously

Standard game case, nothing special here, but nothing special expected though.

Soundtrack disk

Only 5 tracks, IDK what songs are, is still sealed so I can't talk much about it.

Skin and screen protector

Looks good but a back skin would be better for a full picture, probably not gonna apply it in some time, I already have a Hori screen protector and with the pdp trigger grip is starting to peel off from the above corners.

Protective case

Looks somewhat cheap, but does very well his job, like the photo shows has a foam for protect the screen from scratches.

Soft pouch

In the photo can't be appreciated but has a velvet like texture, is very soft.

Very self explanatory, a picture of Kisuke and Torahime, here is a link of the full picture that someone scanned

The controls are different than the ones on the Wii version, you have a dedicated "jump" button, but you can customize it and leave it like the Classic controller, I personally played with the nunchuk on the Wii for the convenience of item selection, here is a picture of the default controls and the ones I'm using.

Talking about the game itself, is an action packaged Metroidvania game even when can fell linear, you can roam freely and find some extra dungeons, blades and items, the art style is what really shine, is very polished and a trademark of Vanillaware games and looks awesome on that screen, sounds awesome, plays wonderfully and is portable so you can enjoy it everywhere, don't need more explanation than that, you need to play it to understand how awesome is.
Four DLC characters are being developed so the replayability is ensured and if you happen to like more digital purchases you're on luck, because only weights 450MB approx. very light for the quality of the title.

Any thoughts you want to share?? any question?? or maybe a critic?? just post it!!!

Nice pics I imported the same version and finished it today. The game needs multiple plays to unlock everything but I don't know if I can be bothered to play it again.
I've uploaded my review to the review centre but the actual centre isn't ready to use yet so the review is unviewable by the public :/

What do you think of the case? I haven't opened anything except the game as I was going to ebay it as it's not available in Europe but was thinking about keeping the case. I already have a hori screen protector and madcatz clear armor but I like this case's front protection.

the case is fine, not as protective as a nerf armor, but serves well for transportation because covers the entire screen with foam and the analog sticks won't get tangled with nothing, and you get the Muramasa logo, the color isn't very pretty though.
and yeah, you need to play at least 2 times, one with Momohime and one with Kisuke, on the Wii I played Momohime only and now on Vita I'm playing Momohime again, can't get tired of her, Kisuke can wait.

A cheap plastic protective case... Well at the very least it protects the screen? Too bad about anything else though. I would rather pick up an official Sony protective case.
