Most of us want an Onimusha remake, but an Onimusha 2 remake would be more than welcome. It’s time a special series is brought back in our eyes, Jason Rocha explores this as part of our PS2 Classics Series, part of PauseResumeQ4.
This is what I do not get. There are so much great IP and they are doing nothing with it. Remaster/HD release. Release it on virtual to cut down on costs. Every platform now has digital distribution.
the way they just ignored Onimusha is criminal
Onimusha 2 Remaster is all I need. I only ever remember playing through the first one once back in the day and it was a very "early PS2" affair with that similar half a second pause when it switches the camera shot from one prerendered background screen to the next. The second one was when things kicked into overdrive and it still hold ups well today much like RE REmake. The 3rd one was a step back for me, going with less impressive 3d environments and that whole Jean Reno thing WITHOUT his actual voice drove me nuts. I never really played much of the 4th one at all and I forget if it was well received or not.
I dont know about anybody else but I played them all and dawn of dreams is by far the best one for me.all the characters you get to play as are awesome.
Dawn Of Dreams is that last gem for PS2. I like it a lot too.
that game... Classic. Replayed it several times, several generations lol Every gen I make it a thing to play Onimusha 1 and 2 (didn't care for 3 that much)
Please, Please, Please! I still own the original 3.
original Trilogy was great. I played the first one through last year. Keep meaning to pay through the 2nd and 3rd again soon.
Don't sleep on Dawn Of Dreams (no pun intended) Also a great title.
What a great series, Onimusha 2 is my personal favorite. I hope one day Capcom resurrect some of its classics and if not i'm happy i had the pleasure to have played these games.
SERIOUSLY! THIS times 100! lol I played Onimusha 1- Dawn of Dreams, several times last gen and played Onimusha 1 and 2 once this gen and I'm surprised with how PORT HUNGER Capcom has been for generations, that we never got a Onimusha port, even remaster, even a classic lazy collection, even a digital port with no extras etc. Very, very surprising. So basically my original versions are the only way to play this great series and I'd love a remake or even collection in HD 60fps. This series sold less then the DMC games, but not THAT much less to basically ignore it for as long as they have. I always wanted a HD collection or a remake or even a Onimusha 5.
