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. (Next-Gen, Ninja Theory, Onimusha, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

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.
DarkBlood  +   1003d ago
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......

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

All the characters in the game would have been modeled after Ninja's theory's founder.

Street Fighter 4 producer and full-time happy man Yoshinori Ono told IGN last year that Onimusha deserves more love. "The time feels right to me. It feels like it's the time to resurrect that series," he began. "But I wouldn't want to do the things we've done before. I think it might be time to progress beyond the standard single-player adventure.

"There should be ways to expand upon what we've done while involving the community more. Perhaps implement some sort of multiplayer into a game like that. I don't have those ideas solidified yet, but when these ideas come to fruition, when I feel good about them and I feel we can do something, I will most certainly take them in for approval with the higher-ups. It's something I'm very interested in doing."

i don't understand why capcom ignore a great game like onimusha ??

Because its capcom they only care about profit and not quality. The only games they actually develop now is like monster hunter and sf series.

I want another Onimusha i've been waiting for a long time. I doubt i'll buy it since i cant tolerate capcom anymore this gen.

Skate-AK  +   1003d ago
