Capcom to release HD remaster of Onimusha: Warlords next year


The cult classic samurai hack and slash game Onimusha: Warlords originally released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2. 17 years later, Capcom has announced that they'll be bringing the game back by releasing an HD remastered version for consoles and PC. This new version of the game will let you choose between the original 4:3 display, or a modernized 16:9 with new HD graphics. The soundtrack and character voice lines have also been re-recorded, and an easy mode will be included from the start, for newcomers to ease into the gameplay. Onimusha: Warlords will be a digital-only title, and will have a release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch for $19.99/€19.99/£15.99.

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 15, 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 new soundtrack

Sad that it's a digital-only title.
Yep, it's indeed a shame.

Great that it's finally getting a re-release though... if it's successful perhaps we'll see the other games in the series remastered and maybe down the line there will be a physical "Onimusha Collection" release.

I'm still kind of surprised it's actually happening at all, as I'd always been led to believe there were licensing issues with the actors/characters likenesses usage and voice acting (new VO might explain part of that though).

HULLAAAA! Such a great news CAPCOM! NOW remaster Chaos Legion too!

Early Onimush titles use real life actors as character models, I think the company has finally make an agreement with them!

That was a PS2 launch title and was a cult classic thanks Capcom.. Hopefully next would be a Dino Crisis 1/2 Remake or even better Dino Crisis 4!

Wow, I thought the world had forgotten about this series. I'm a huge Onimusha fan! Way better than Resident Evil.

I hope they include the extra content from Genma Onimusha.

I have been waiting for new or remastered Onimusha content for too long, so I am excited to finally see it happen! They can remake all the games, I'll gladly buy them again!

    Worst case even just spaghetti will give you quite a bit of energy even without anything extra
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Uh oh spegetios
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Half a pound of ground beef can go for like $4 alone here
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    With meatballs!!! Was on sale the other day I got 2 cans for 1.25 lol
  • Minox @ Minox:
    I see 0.78usd spaghetti that would surely be enough for a few meals
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    It's processed shit but at least it can make you believe it's there
  • Minox @ Minox:
    Fry a bit of minced meat with some onions and tomatoes and you have a decent enough meal
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    And all the ingredients would still cost you more
  • Minox @ Minox:
    Would they though? Make a decent enough batch and eat for a few days and it'll even out
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Depends on inflation rates like I said half a pound of ground beef here is like $4 vs 4 cans for $4 that's processed
  • Minox @ Minox:
    To make it even more economical you can add more vegetables
  • Minox @ Minox:
    That is, change the ratio of meat to vegetables
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    But still more you'd spend but whatever floats your boat
  • Minox @ Minox:
    I highly doubt that'd be the case, but maybe no need to continue this argument
  • Minox @ Minox:
    It seems like we both don't want to :P
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    No argument theirs just ways to save and we don't always think about grand totals
  • Lycanroc @ Lycanroc:
    Heya
  • Lycanroc @ Lycanroc:
    Btw I think the chatbox is broken on mobile, pressing enter does nothing, and there's no separate button to send
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    You need to have the cursor at the
    start of the sentence already let Costello know about it new updates means new bugs
