Step into a feudal world filled with magic, samurais, and demon warriors, as Onimusha: Warlords comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on January 15th, 2019. Originally released in 2001, Onimusha: Warlords successfully blended thrilling action with a cinematic story to achieve over 2 million copies sold worldwide.
Now Capcom brings the original sword fighting action title to current video game systems with updated features including high-definition graphics, widescreen display option, analog stick support, a readily available Easy Mode option, and a new soundtrack. Check out the awesome trailer below.
The game will be available as a digital purchase across North America and Europe for MSRP $19.99 / €19.99 / £15.99 on all formats with a physical release in North America available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Onimusha: Warlords follows the battle-filled journey of samurai Samanosuke Akechi and ninja Kaede on a quest to save Princess Yuki from a legion of mysterious demons who have invaded Inabayama Castle.
As the two travel throughout the castle, they unravel a malevolent plot by those who would serve the evil lord Nobunaga Oda. Using sword-based combat, a magical Oni Gauntlet and puzzle solving, players need to call on both brawn and creativity to defeat the demonic foes.
This brings back a lot of memories for me as Onimusha was one of the first games I played on the PlayStation 2. Little did I know going in that I would come to adore such a fascinating series. I played up until the third Onimusha (Jean Reno was awesome) and seeing this get an update on the PlayStation 4 gives me hope we’ll get Onimusha 2: Samurai’s Destiny and Onimusha 3: Demon Siege as well.
Stay tuned to GamEir as we will be watching this game with a keen eye.
