Today Capcom released a batch of screenshots of its upcoming HD remaster of Onimusha: Warlords, that will bring the old and glorious game to modern platforms.
First of all, we get to see the Dark Realm, an underworld arena which allows the player to fight through waves of Genma. You can gain access thanks to the old gatekeeper, Minogoro of the Mino clan.
Another element that we get to see is Fluorite, a shiny collectible that can be found across the level, and used to unlock various rewards.
If you’re not familiar with Onimusha: Warlords, it was originally released for PS2 in 2001, with an Xbox release following in 2002. Fans have been basically begging Capcom for years to bring the franchise back, and at long last, we’re getting it, even if it’s just an HD remaster.
You can enjoy all the screenshots in the gallery below. If you want to see more, you can also check out a trailer and gameplay released earlier today, more recent Nintendo Switch gameplay, and the original announcement trailer which Capcom published August.
Onimusha: Warlords will be published in Japan about a month earlier than in the west, on December 20th, but Japanese gamers will be able to enjoy it only on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The western release is scheduled for January 15th, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
