    Scrubs down to 700Mb apparently. Can't wait to try it out.

    630MB to be precise, which is actually pretty good. Too bad the Wii can't read CD's otherwise I'd burn it to one.

    I hate downloading 4.5GB just to get a 700MB game.

    Been semi-waiting for this. I didn't know much about it until maybe a week ago. I'll just wait until my download site updates with it. Don't ask for links and don't give any.

    This game is awesome, works great with loader GX, just required the 002 fix. Great gameplay, good music, awesome graphics, and all the weeaboos will love this: all the dialogue is the original japanese voice acting. Also is playable with the classic controller. Finally a great game for the Wii. [​IMG]

    Played it for 6 hours straight, I think the only other Wii games that got me this hooked were Mario Galaxy and Strikers.

    Too many games for the Wii I have to play...No More Heroes, Okami and now Muramasa. Looks like I'm going to be busy.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    This game hit the scene yesterday, so I'm surprised gbatemp didn't post this sooner. After giving it some play time, I can honestly say it's just as impressive as before with the NTSC-J release, only now I can understand what's going on [​IMG]

    Thankfully, the voiceover is still Japanese (which sounds great), and the game is virtually the same. This game is a testament to the potential of 2-D game design, and while it adds up to mere 700mb in size, it has more beauty and gameplay than almost any Wii game to date. This is definately one of the best Wii games to date, and I'm going to buy a copy for my collection when it releases.

    What? 630MB lol.

    I'm definitely going to grab the scrubbed release.

    Normally, I'd punt you and point to Metal Gear Solid 4 as evidence that English-language VA isn't always worse.

    However, this is a game without significant dialog, and it's about NINJAS, so leaving it in Japanese makes it that much more authentic and awesome.

    Any one tried it on PAL ?? [​IMG]

    EDITED: Hmmmm every were I go I see that no one asks if it plays on PAL systems.... I've been away from the Wii scene for far too long it seems so may I presume there is a hack or loader or something that now days allows you to play any NTSC game on a PAL system?
    Sorry for my ignorance guys but as I said... I've been away [​IMG]. So I got a Wii with WiiKey, can I play this game with out doing any homebrew moding?'

    Thanks
