Ninja Theory denies next gen Onimusha sequel rumours

Ninja Theory is not developing a new instalment of much-mourned action franchise Onimusha for next generation consoles, lords and ladies. Wait a minute, who on earth's been claiming otherwise? Ah - these people, apparently.

"We are not working on an Onimusha game," the studio Tweeted just now. "Any rumours surrounding this are untrue." That's us told, then.

The story is too old to be commented.

My thoughts exactly. They ruined Devil May Cry and quite frankly at this point I kinda doubt that Capcom could make a Onimusha game anymore. I would rather not see another game in the series then get another mess. Which is what Capcom seems to be excelling at these days.

Still would love another game in the series though.

I hope not. I dont want another great franchise to die.

then its already dead if another game isnt made for it?

speaking of that i think i remeber playing something like that on the ps2 as a warrior or other selectable characters killing a bunch of onscreen enemeies not sure if its the same series though

Wrong game I think. Onimusha added survival horror feel to the hack and slash genre which haven't been done since of Soul Of The Samurai for the Playstation One.

Onimusha: Dawn Of Dreams was the only one that took a more action approach......

suvivor horror you say? that has my interest peaked a bit

Onimusha ran off of the Resident Evil engine and controlled almost exactly the same. Great game with a great theme and story.

Its survival Horror with a good helping of action (Much like RE 1-3) but I don't know if I would call it hack and slash.

Great series though.

I would have preferred another Onimusha to another Devil May Cry.

The again, I'd take another Tenchu or Manhunt over nearly anything.

i just hope the legacy of kain part of that ''rumour'' is still true
