Since the franchises launch in 2001 on the PlayStation 2, Onimusha: Warlords was the perfect blend of action packed gameplay and cinematic story elements, which helped the game become one of the most renowned titles in the history of Capcom. Now, with more than 2 million copies sold across the globe, Onimusha is on its way back.
Since the launch of the PlayStation 2 titles, Onimusha had seemed that it was all-but-forgotten about as fans gathered about, pleading for a chance to see the game come to life once again, to see a new series come to life. As of today, Capcom has alleviated those concerns, allowing us to finally hear the news we’d all been waiting for: Onimusha is back and your voices have been heard.
This new version is set to launch on January 15, 2019, for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch. This new version will feature HD graphics, a widescreen display option, analog stick support (we loved this in the DMC collection, right folks?), an Easy Mode for new comers, and an entirely new soundtrack for you to enjoy.
Capcom has confirmed that this newly launched version will be a digital-only title in select regions with a physical release coming to North America for $19.99. If anything, this is a perfect time for you to polish your blades, dust off your armor, and put back your ponytails as you prepare to join Samanosuke Akechi and Kaede once again as they seek to save Princess Yuki from the Oni forces that have invaded Inabayama Castle and face down the evil lord Nobunaga Oda once again.
