The First Onimusha Is Getting Remastered

The 2001 action-adventure game Onimusha: Warlords is getting a remaster, publisher Capcom said today. It’ll be out on January 15, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.


The remaster, which runs $20, will come with updated features including high-definition graphics, widescreen display option, analog stick support, a readily available Easy Mode option, and new soundtrack,” Capcom said.

This one is a little out of the blue. The Onimusha series both started and ended on the PlayStation 2, with three main games and a couple of spinoffs (along with a browser game that’s best not mentioned). Onimusha: Warlords is set in feudal Japan and stars a katana-wielding warrior, Samanosuke Akechi, as he sets out to rescue a princess.



Let me know when they remaster Onimusha 3 so I can play as Jean Reno in all his HD glory.

...Still gonna buy this though.
