Mysterious Murasame Castle Summary

The Mysterious Murasame Castle is a Famicom Disk System game. Developed by Nintendo and released in 1986. It was based upon fantasy Japan, during the Edo period of the nation’s history. For reference, the Edo period was between 1603 and 1868. It had a top-down adventure style, similar to the Legend of Zelda series. So much so, that it could be considered a “sister” to the first Legend of Zelda. Despite having only one game in the series, it is worth noting that there is an interesting legacy behind it.

Fuji TV, for example, developed a live-action drama that was loosely based on the game, and the main character of the game, Takamaru, appeared as a sticker in Super Smash Brothers Brawl. In addition, these characters also made an appearance in Samurai Warriors 3, and that is oddly considered canon in the series.

So, with this in mind, it was met with positive sales. So much While it did take over 20 years to make it to the West on the 3DS, it was a welcomed addition to the Nintendo Library.

Mysterious Murasame Castle Premise

In the Edo Period of Japan, on a stormy night, the Murasame castle, along with four others, was seized by a demonic force. Previously, the only curious thing about the Murasame castle was the statue located in its center. But on that stormy night, a mysterious golden object fell onto the castle. Shrieks arise from the castle, and now, four daimyos, or lords, have been given control over the surrounding castles. Upon hearing these strange happenings, the Shogun, or King of the land, sends the samurai apprentice Takamura to investigate the castle. As such, Takamura must infiltrate each of the castles, and then free them of their demonic influence.

But what he finds at the end of each castle is a lord ready and willing to fight him. Are they brainwashed? Possessed? Or are they fighting for their own free will? The answer is unclear, but the only truth can be found with Takamaru’s blade.
