Another Capcom classic is getting the remaster treatment, 17 years later. No, it's not Resident Evil this time but rather the first game in the Onimusha franchise, titled Onimusha: Warlords. The publisher has announced that the game would be re-released for current consoles and will feature updated visuals, modernized controls (with the option of using the classic style), and a new soundtrack.
For those of you who have never played the original, here's a quick primer. Onimusha was originally conceived as a Resident Evil spin-off (at least in terms of gameplay), only with ninjas, set in Japan during the Sengoku period. The game featured a third person view with fixed camera angles similar to classic installments of the survival horror franchise. In the original title, the primary protagonist Akechi faces off against demonic creatures called the Genma using a variety of swords and powers.
The remaster will let you swap between the updated and classic visuals and controls at any time and will retail for only $19.99. The Onimusha: Warlords remaster will arrive on January 15th, 2019 and will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
