Sorry for the multiple Friday Free for All posts, folks, but I just couldn’t let this one go.

For the September issue of play magazine, Ignition entertainment managed to get gorgeous Wii side-scroller Muramasa [Editor’s note: ??] top billing on the front cover. Bottom billing, too. This amazing, dare we say sensual cover was drawn by Vanillaware’s George Kamitani, and yes, it’s a tip of the…hat to Hokusai’s sexy/creepy classic “The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife“. Only this time with swords. [via Kotaku]

I call it tasteful yet understated, the kind of artwork a man could really airbrush on the side of his rape van.  But I’m probably biased, my favorite Transformer was always Octopus Thong.

[PS – as posted in the comments section by Renton, here’s the more, er, direct version]
