Did you own a PlayStation 2 when you were younger? Do you remember Onimusha: Warlords? The game originally launched in 2001, and fused visceral combat with a cinematic story. The title was a massive success for Capcom because it went on to garner terrific reviews and sell over two million units.
Today, the publisher said that it's bringing the classic back for current-generation systems. The rerelease features high-definition visuals, widescreen support, analog stick movement, an "Easy Mode", and a new soundtrack. The game should launch on Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 on January 15, 2019.
According to Capcom, Onimusha: Warlords follows the journey of samurai Samanosuke Akechi and ninja Kaede on a quest to save Princess Yuki from a legion of mysterious demons who have invaded Inabayama Castle. As the two travel throughout the castle, they unravel a dark plot by the evil lord Nobunaga Oda.
The game will cost $19.99 on digital storefronts, with a physical release in North America for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 only.
