One of Capcom’s classics from the early 2000s is getting a 2018 remaster in the vein of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 – this time, it’s Onimusha: Warlords.
Originally released in 2001 as an exclusive to the then-new PlayStation 2, Onimusha takes the idea behind Resident Evil and takes it back to ancient Japan. Guns and zombies are gone, replaced with swords, shuriken, and Japanese supernatural monsters.
After a couple sequels – one of which featured actor Jean Reno of all people – the series died out for a long time. Now, Capcom is remastering it for the Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Of course, the game will be getting updated visuals with high definition graphics, and the game will support widescreen play as well. This game is so old, though, that the PlayStation didn’t have analog sticks yet when it came out. Capcom saw fit to add a new analog stick control option for easier play. Easy mode is unlocked right from the start, too, instead of forcing you to die a certain amount of times before being humiliated by the game suggesting you switch difficulties. There will also be a new soundtrack. The game will keep the fixed cameras that were a trademark of the Resident Evil and Onimusha series for so long.
If you like to keep things traditional, you can play the game with the original control scheme and aspect ratio. In North America, you can even get a physical copy of the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Part of me wonders if Capcom isn’t testing the waters for a new Onimusha game. In the meantime, we don’t have to wait long to play the original again. Onimusha: Warlords hits Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 15, 2019 for just $19.99.
