If you’ve been following GI since the beginning, every time we talk about Capcom’s franchises and what they should bring back, I always mention wanting Onimusha to either get a reboot or a remaster. There have been rumors of Capcom bringing it back, but instead, we got a bunch of Resident Evil remasters and Mega Man continuations. I guess Capcom finally wised up to the demand of the Onimusha franchise and announced today that Onimusha Warlords (the first title in the series) is getting remade for all next-gen consoles.
I want to stress the fact that this is NOT a remaster, but a remake similar to Shenmue I and II that just came out. I would’ve loved a remaster because the cutscene graphics were amazing at the time, but I will take the remake for now. The main thing that I hope comes from this is a proper continuation OR a remaster of the second and third Onimusha titles.
Onimusha Warlords will drop on the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch on January 15th, 2019. This will be a day one purchase for me!
