Will We Ever See A New Onimusha Game?

Cultured Vultures: Capcom's epic samurai series Onimusha has been on hiatus for the better part of 15 years. We're asking if it'll ever come back.

Nope, and Capcom tested the waters with Onimusha HD and nobody bought it. So, yea, we effectively killed the Onimusha franchise by not buying the game.

MrSwankSinatra589d ago

not true because i remember in that leaked capcom document of all their future projects "onimusha new work" was one of the titles listed.

blackblades589d ago

Yeah that was a literal leak not a rumors leak. Guess people forgot about it.

The HD remake had a music problem due to the controversy with the original composer and replacing his music with meh music. Maybe that affected sales.

But an Onimusha game of the quality of recent capcom games (RE2,DMC5) would definitely be welcomed by everyone and the sales of Ghost of tsushima will hopefully push Capcom to give the franchise another try.

It wasn't a remake though, it was a remaster, and they could have done a better job on it, but it was good playing through it for old times sake.

Now, if they made a full remake, that would be awesome.

Redrex7000589d ago

they just put that game out there out of the blue
wish they did it for the other games

We didn’t kill it by not picking up an old ass game with hardly any quality of life updates. That game was absolutely amazing for its time, but it’s capcom’s own fault for such a lame remaster. You want interest from old fans or new fans, you gotta come with something that doesn’t look and feel 3 generations old.

LOL....the reason we will not see another Onimusha game is not because they put out a dopey HD version of an antiquated game on current gen. The reason we will not see it is the same reason we have not seen a new Dino Crisis, Okami, Strider, Viewtiful Joe, Bionic Commando, etc. Its the same reason everytime.

Oh yea? Tell that to the Darkstalker fans then.

Same thing happened to Zone of the Enders 3.

Ghost of Tsushima filled that void for me, and then some. I don't see Capcom reaching this level of quality for a single-player game.

FreeckyCake589d ago

Ghost of Tsushima nor Nioh is nothing like the Onimusha franchise. Onimusha is unique compared to GOT.

lmaoooo what? ghost of tsushima doesn't have anything in common with onimusha out of the character being a samurai lmaooooo

Godmars290589d ago

How about remakes/reissues of the old ones?

Dirtnapstor589d ago

We have. It's called Nioh. And it's glorious.

FlavorLav01589d ago (Edited 589d ago )

Nioh gameplay - world class (10/10)
Nioh story telling - not so much (4/10)

MrSwankSinatra589d ago

Nioh story is garbage tbh. plus i don't care for the characthers of that series unlike onimusha which had much better writing and characters.

Vithar589d ago

Is that Jean Reno? lol

Godmars290589d ago

Onimusha's main characters, aside from 4, were all based on real actors.

Vithar589d ago

damn that's cool :) haha never played Onimusha
