In utterly fantastic news, Capcom has announced that Onimusha: Warlords has risen from its grave, some 18 years after its original release. Onimusha: Warlords is the game that kicked off the cult favourite Onimusha series, and the remaster will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on January 15th, 2019.

Originally released on the PlayStation 2 back in 2001, Onimusha: Warlords is Capcom aping the success of its Resident Evil series once again. It uses fixed camera angles and utilises horror elements with light puzzle-solving. Unlike the older Resident Evil games though, Onimusha: Warlords is far more action-packed, offering the player a versatile range of attacks. The animations look a little stilted and rough in 2018, but Onimusha was always a franchise steeped in atmosphere.

Onimusha: Warlords follows the samurai Samanosuke Akechi and ninja Kaede as they head out on a mission to save Princess Yuki from some rather bloodthirsty demons that have invented Inabayama Castle.

The remaster of Onimusha: Warlords will include high-resolution support, a widescreen option, analog stick support, a new soundtrack and an easy mode for those not wishing to brave its punishing difficulty.

Onimusha: Warlords is out on January 15th for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch, priced at $19.99 for all formats.

Looks like I was right, Onimusha Switch already has multiple physical JP editions up for pre order on play asia. I hope Onimusha has an English option.

Still got all the games for my PS2. Been a long time since I've played them though. May give this remake a go at, but I would rather prefer a Dino Crisis remake.

I would've preferred if this was a "remake" rather than a remaster. They would've gotten my money even faster.

Dino Crisis has to happen soon, it's their last Studio 1 series that hasn't been remastered. I'm hoping they go full remake for it though, that would be amazing.

Good. Now if I can get a new Onimusha installment with Soki in it, I'll buy it. Let's hope that this remaster includes Japanese audio with subtitles as well. =3
