Ono: “Time feels right” to bring back Onimusha, “running into hurdles” with Darkstalkers reboot

VG247 writes: "Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono has told IGN that it now “feels right” to bring back the Onimusha series.

The actioner hasn’t seen any new titles since the release of Dawn of Dreams for PS2 in 2006, but Ono said he feels good about a reboot, but that it would need changes.

“The time feels right to me. It feels like it’s the time to resurrect that series” he told the site. “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.”

Ono added: “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.”"

It'll go multiplatform and suffer the same fate as DevilMayCry.

Onimusha with 4 player co-op online and offline.

16 player battles competitive online. 4 player splitscreen online/offline.

Gain stats and abilities in multiplayer.

I think, multiplayer is very good for Onimusha.

Honestly, I'll LOVE a onimusha and dino crisis sequel on the NGP. I was actually thinking about it last night, and was surprised to see this article this morning.

Thatd be nice but People would prefer a PS3 version much more.

If they brought onimusha back right now i'd be happy, but Capcom have been poor this gen so i wouldn't expect to much from it.

Go And Vote For Onimusha In Capcom's Survey, This Gem Deserves As Much

Hanzala from eXputer says, "Onimusha deserves a proper Resident Evil-style comeback as much as the other Capcom gems, and I'm glad they might get the chance after all."

I don't know man, Onimusha for modern audiences doesn't sound like a good idea

Loved the Onimusha series on my ps2 just as much as DmC.

Hell naw. I voted for breath of fire. It's thr best choice imo.

Please vote breath of fire.

CrimsonWing69156d ago

Breath of Fire 3 got my vote. 3 and 4 are glorious games to me, but I could only pick one.

I did vote for a Breath of Fire 1-3 remake in the remake section, and it was one of my three choices in series I wish would make a comeback.
