During a recent earnings report from Capcom, a representative was quoted saying that the developer, possibly motivated by the early reaction to Resident Evil 2 on revival, remake, or remastering Capcom's dormant IPs. After that went out, I thought about how cool it would be to see Onimusha back. Well, that's exactly what is on the table. Capcom has released a remaster of the original Onimusha: Warlords which already has a release date of January 1
Onimusha: Warlords is largely a "remaster," which is a word of no fixed importance, but in this case can be taken as an update that makes no material changes under the hood. This is an HD update for the original PS2 game, but with an impressive list of bells and whistles to help make such a stale title in 2019, especially for those who have not yet played it.
Among the announced Onimusha: Warlords features are a new easy difficulty (the original Onimusha is really tough) and a new control scheme, similar to what happened to Resident Evil HD Remaster was added . You can also toggle the aspect ratio of the game from 4: 3 to 16:19 (with some restrictions), and the music and Japanese voice output have both been re-recorded. There's even a new background scrolling feature added to make sure widescreen does not make the whole thing.
Preorders are not live yet, but Onimusha: Warlords will have a physical output Both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. The game will also be available digitally on the Nintendo Switch and PC. In Europe, however, it is only available on a digital level.
